Cate Blanchett’s Response To Interviewer
Cate Blanchett had a rather 'wicked' reaction to a interviewer's question recently when asked about her new movie 'Cinderella'.
It seems as though things didn't start off on the right foot. The interviewer was Channel Ten's Jonathan Hyla, who fumbled through the first few questions, making things a bit awkward between himself and Blanchett. He tried to smooth things over a bit with a joke, saying “I was going to bring like a six pack of beer. You seem like the type of person that we should just crack open a beer and just have a chat.” To which she responded, "This date is not going well, I do not drink beer.” Ouch. Frankly, I don't see Cate Blanchett as the type of person that enjoys a casual chat over a few beers...but then again, I'm not a beer drinker either, so how would I know? She seems a little cool towards the interviewer, even from the get-go, so I can see how maybe his nerves got the best of him.
Well, it only got worse from there. They decided that since the interview wasn't going so swimmingly, they would start over from scratch. They reintroduce themselves to one another and Mr. Hyla launches right into his first question. He asked her how she was able to get the cat in the movie to cooperate on a leash, adding that he has tried to get his girlfriend's cat to use a leash, but it didn't work out well.
Uh oh, wrong question to start off with...Cate didn't respond very well. Instead of answering how she was actually able to get the feline to cooperate, she responded with "THAT'S your question?, That's your f&^%*ing question?" Eww.
Ok, maybe it's not the greatest question to start off an interview with, but whatever, it doesn't hurt to answer it. He's just trying to conduct an interview and have a little fun! Maybe he caught Cate on a bad day or maybe they were just joking around and having a little fun. Watch the clip below and see for yourself:
