LONDON, June 5 ― Double Oscar victor Cate Blanchett has revealed she had a lucky escape after suffering a cut to the head following a chainsaw accident at her home in southern England.

The Oscar-winning star said she cut her head while working in her garden during lockdown, but reassured fans her injury was minor, the Press Association has reported.

"I'm fine... I had a bit of a chainsaw accident yesterday, which sounds very, very exciting, but it wasn't", Blanchett told Gillard last week. According to a report, the 51-year-old actor and mother of four joined Julia Gillard, the former Prime Minister of Australia, on her podcast last week, where she was asked about her time spent in quarantine amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Be very careful with that chainsaw. I don't think people want to see any nicks taken out of it".

Cate then amusingly promised to "keep it on my shoulders".

Cate went on to discuss how she had previously taken a year off to help her eldest son through his A-Level exams.

Blanchett is now starring in the FX television series Mrs America about the women's movement in the United States in the 1970s.

"I'm fine", said Blanchett.

The Carol star is now in lockdown with her husband Andrew Upton and their children, sons Dashiell, 18, Roman, 16, and Ignatius, 12, along with daughter Edith, whom the pair adopted in 2015.

The actress explained: "I took the year off ostensibly to be with him and support him through exam period". "So it's a little bit discombobulating, but it's a high-class problem, we're all well".

Meanwhile, despite playing Galadriel in Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit prequel series, the Ocean's 8 actress confessed how she previously tried to convince director Peter Jackson to cast her as a dwarf instead.

"I found myself being a kindergarten teacher to my five-year-old which is just as challenging". I always have, ' she added.

Quiet life: Potentially deadly mishaps aside, Cate revealed on A Podcast of One's Own that life in coronavirus lockdown had been mostly uneventful.
