Poor Cate Blanchett! In what sounds like something out of a horror movie the Australian actress was recently involved in an accident involving a chainsaw!

The two-time Oscar winner is lucky to be alive after the DIY accident happened at her country home in East Sussex, England.

She says she took a “little nick to the head” while using the tool, but thankfully avoided a serious injury.
