Cate Blanchett Slept With Her Oscar in Her Bed the Night After She Won! (VIDEO)
Cate Blanchett had a new man in her bed over the weekend! But don’t start worrying that she and her husband are in marital turmoil. Actually, Cate slept with her Academy Award on the night following the exciting Oscars 2014 ceremony, where she nabbed the prize for her role in Blue Jasmine. No word on whether the Oscar had to do the walk of shame the next morning.
Cate was named Best Actress at the awards show on March 2, and she appeared on Ellen the next day to reveal that she — and husband Andrew Upton — slept in bed with the statue that night. “It's the closest my husband and I have ever come to a threesome,” Cate quipped.
We love how excited Cate clearly is to have earned the Oscar! And we can’t really say we blame her for not wanting to part with the trophy, even while she sleeps. We’re just glad she didn’t accidentally roll over on the the trophy, since those things are heavy. And we hope her first Oscar — for 2004’s The Aviator— didn’t get too jealous.
Speaking of her first Oscar, Cate was asked backstage at the show about being the first Aussie actor to win multiple Academy Awards. “And don’t you f—king forget it,” she joked. Gotta love that all her success hasn’t taken away her sense of humor.
