It’s been an interesting time to see our favorite celebrities as they endure the Coronavirus pandemic with the rest of us, especially considering how most people are being forced to stay inside, or even out of work. This includes actress Cate Blanchett – who recently appeared on a podcast and happened to mention one of the more interesting things to have happened to her while in quarantine. Apparently, actress Cate Blanchett had an accident with a chainsaw that led to a slight self-inflicted injury. Ouch.
She revealed her incident with the chainsaw while speaking on A Podcast of One’s Own with Julia Gillard. The podcast is actually hosted by former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard. The two were having a conversation about the current quarantine that most people are still stuck in, and Clare Blanchett happened to mention her chainsaw ordeal. As she placed it in her own words, via CNN, she said she “had a bit of a chainsaw accident.”
While one would assume the worst, like perhaps something out of a Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel – and who wouldn’t want to see an actress like Cate Blanchett abruptly appear in one of those films – she insisted that it wasn’t as serious as it sounded. In fact, she tried to move past it without explaining in detail what had actually happened. As she stated:
“Sounds very, very exciting, but it wasn’t. Apart from the little nick to the head, I’m fine.”
Well, regardless of whether it’s exciting or not, it’s still interesting. Of course, it doesn’t seem like Cate Blanchett wanted to open up any more than that about the accident. While we might have to stick to our imaginations about that one, it’s good to know that Blanchett ended up safe and sound, regardless. In fact, Julia Gillard even humorously gave a piece of advice for Blanchett, stating the following:
“Be very careful with that chainsaw. You’ve got a very famous head, I don’t think people would like to see any nicks taken out of it.”
As stated above though, it’s good to see she’s safe and sound. Hopefully she won’t have any other chainsaw accidents in the future.
