Oof. This is uncomfortable.
Oscar winner Cate Blanchett was not having it at a recent interview for her new movie "Cinderella," when a reporter asked the 45-year-old actress an out-of-left-field question. After the two chatted about booze, Blanchett likely figured he would soon be getting to questions about her film.
"How were you able to get that cat to do what you wanted to on a leash?," asked Jonathan Hyla for Australian TV show, "The Project," "I tried putting my girlfriend's cat on a leash and it just never works for me."
"That's your question?" Blanchett responded. "That's your f--king question?"
To which Hyla replied, "You took up all our time talking about vodka!"
So Blanchett shut the whole interview down with, "Nice to meet you."
To be fair, Hyla did later put up this self-deprecating Instagram post, calling his interview with Blanchett the, "best worst interview I've ever done."
[WARNING: The video features some explicit language.]
It's possible she was just giving Hyla a hard time for his lackluster questions, but just to be safe, maybe don't mention your girlfriend's cat when asking about her movie.
