Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett has suffered a minor injury after being hit by a prop during a live performance of A Streetcar Named Desire in Sydney.She's apparently fine.
The Elizabeth star was accidentally hit in the head with a radio during a fight scene with her co-star Joel Edgerton.
Audience members said she left the stage with blood pouring down her head. The show was subsequently cancelled.
Dude. I wasn't there -- so what do I know? -- but as performers we've all been there: working with scene partners who get into the moment just a bit too much for safety. (I still have a scar from the Fringe show where my scene partner took some clippers to my ear. Yikes.)
On behalf of all us Cates to the Joels of the stage: take it down a notch, okay? It's not real.
