Cate Blanchett  revealed she cut her head with a chainsaw during quarantine, but is “fine.”

The Oscar winner shared her experience on former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s podcast, A Podcast of One’s Own, May 27. However, Blanchett said she’s totally fine, and the injury was minor. “I had a bit of a chainsaw accident yesterday, which sounds very, very exciting, but it wasn’t,” she explained. “Apart from the little nick to my head, I’m fine.” It is unclear what Blanchett was doing with the chainsaw when she was injured, but it took place at her estate in England where she and her family have been self-isolating amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
