Actress Cate Blanchett abruptly ended an awkward interview with the host of an Australian TV show.


Jonathan Hyla, host of "The Prospect," started the interview by suggesting he should have served beer to drink during their conversation.

Blanchett, who is promoting the new live-action "Cinderella" movie, said she doesn't drink beer and would have preferred vodka.

She then attempted to steer the conversation back to the Kenneth Branagh-directed film, in which she plays the evil stepmother, saying that "one o us has got to do our job."

Hyla then wandered off-topic by asking about a cat that appeared in the movie.

"OK, serious question: How were you able to get that cat to do what you wanted to on a leash?” Hyla said. “I tried putting my girlfriend’s cat on a leash and it just never works for me.”

“That’s your question?” Blanchett said. “That’s your f*cking question?”

She looked over her shoulder toward the production crew, told Hyla it was nice to meet him, and exchanged an awkward high-five with the host before ending the interview.
