She added that the Oscar-winning star only suffered a “small setback in the head” and that was fine in the aftermath of the strange accident.
Speaking to former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Blanchett said: “I had a chainsaw accident yesterday, which looks very exciting, but it was not. Regardless of the little marriage in the head, I’m fine.”
Gillard replied, “Be very careful with the saw.” “You have a very popular head, I don’t think people want to see any jokes that come out of it.”
The actress, who is said to be living in East Sussex, England, did not go into details of how the unusual accident had occurred.
The actress won Academy Awards for her roles in “The Aviator” and “Blue Jasmine.”
