Cate Blanchett, one of the stars of the new Cinderella, recently turned the airwaves blue in a highly unorthodox interview about the movie that aired in Australia.
First, Channel Ten’s Jonathan Hyla said he’d planned to add alcohol to the mix: “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,” he says to Blanchett.
To which she responds: “This date is not going well, I do not drink beer.” But she goes on to suggest potato vodka might help on a hypothetical date.
After a bit of flirtatious banter, the two eventually agree to “start over” and reintroduce themselves to each other. But Blanchett can’t keep a straight face when Hyla asks about how she wrangles a cat on a leash in the film.
“I tried to put my girlfriend’s cat on a leash, and it just never works for me,” Hyla says. Blanchett fires back, “Seriously, that’s your f**king question?”
Here’s the full clip:
