For many individuals, quarantine has been a time for house enchancment tasks. Maybe that’s been putting in one thing new in a kitchen or toilet; maybe it’s concerned trimming branches or cleansing gutters outdoors. But house enchancment tasks can inevitably result in accidents incurred when enhancing issues round the home. And these accidents can befall folks in all walks of life — together with critically acclaimed actors from the stage and display screen.
All of which is prelude to say that Cate Blanchett — Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett — has apparently injured her head with a chainsaw. Apparently she’s fantastic, but it surely appears very doubtless that her story of an damage obtained round the home shall be way more hardcore than most.
At The Guardian, Catherine Shoard has extra data on Blanchett’s damage. The damage got here up in a podcast interview final week:
The Oscar-winning actor, who relocated from Sydney to Crowborough final 12 months, was requested how lockdown was going by former Australian prime minister Julia Gillard on her podcast final week.
“I’m fine,” mentioned Blanchett. “I had a bit of a chainsaw accident yesterday, which sounds very, very exciting, but it wasn’t. Apart from the little nick to the head, I’m fine.”
Still, “a bit of a chainsaw accident” means that Blanchett could have the proverbial nerves of metal, because it’s unclear what sort of chainsaw accident wouldn’t encourage totally and full terror. Still, it’s good to listen to that she’s fantastic. Given the acclaim she’s acquired for her work within the miniseries Mrs. America, it’s very doable we’ll see plenty of her subsequent awards season.
