Don’t mess with Cate Blanchett!
During a recent press interview to promote her new film Cinderella, the 45-year-old actress jokingly stormed out of the sit-down after a reporter asked her a slew of ridiculous questions.
Cate Blanchett as Lady Tremaine in ‘Cinderella.’
After their conversation veered off topic (apparently they were talking about vodka?), Australian journalist Jonathan Hyla proceeded to ask a particularly silly question about the star’s role in the Disney film.
“How were you able to get that cat to do what you wanted [it] to do on a leash?” Hyla asked, referring to Cate’s character’s pet in the flick. “I tried to put my girlfriend’s cat on a leash, and it just never works for me.”
“That’s your question? That’s your f***ing question?” the actress — who portrayed Wicked Stepmother Lady Tremaine in the fairytale — annoyingly replied.
Cate then tells Hyla “nice to meet you” and the pair extend their hands in an awkward handshake turned high-five before the mom-of-four — she and her husband recently adopted a daughter named Edith! — exited the set.
Once the video of Cate and Hyla had been picked up by several media outlets, the journalist took to his Twitter page to defend the sit-down and claimed the clips being shown were “misrepresenting” the overall interview.
