CATE BLANCHETT CHANGES NAME TO CATE BLANKET
SYDNEY – Elf princess and Blue Jasmine star, Cate Blanchett has legally changed her name to Cate Blanket ‘for a joke’.
‘It will be easier for people to spell,’ said Cate Blanchett. ‘But more importantly it’s titty-fil-arious.’
This is not the first time that Cate Blanket’s sense of humor has got the better of her. While filming Notes on a Scandal, Blanket put plastic film over Dame Judi Dench’s toilet, causing the M actress to get a soggy bottom. While making The Hobbit, Hugo Weaving complained that Blanket would poke him in the Elronds in-between takes and thusly put him off. Brad Pitt famously swore that he would never work with Blanket again when – during the filming of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – the actress shaved the Inglourious Basterd’s eyebrows off while he slept.
‘She’s crazy,’ he said.
Cate Blanket will next appear in Terry Malick’s knock-about comedy Knight of Cups in 2014.
