But the Oscar-winning star has only suffered a “small headshot” and is OK after the bizarre accident, he added.
Speaking to former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Blanchett said, “Yesterday I had a little accident with a chainsaw, which sounds very, very exciting, but it wasn’t. Apart from the little nick in the head, I’m fine. “
“Be very careful with that chainsaw,” said Gillard. “You have a very famous head, I don’t think people would want to see any silence from it.”
The actress, who apparently lives in East Sussex, England, hasn’t gone into detail about how the unusual incident happened.
The actress won the Oscars for her roles in “The Aviator” and “Blue Jasmine”.
