Cate Blanchett Loses Her Cool With Interviewer & Gets a Virtual Standing Ovation (VIDEO)

Cate Blanchett totally made our day on Wednesday, March 25, when she gave the perfect response to a reporter asking a weird question. Jonathan Hyla, host of Austraila's The Project, got a chance to interview the star about her role as the evil stepmother in Cinderella. Blanchett responded with a perfectly placed F-bomb, and the Internet roared in approval.

Hyla took the whole thing in stride, thankfully, and even posted a video on his Instagram, calling it "the best worst interview I've ever done." So what did he do that caused Blanchett to lose her cool in the middle of a press junket?

"How were you able to get that cat to do what you wanted to on a leash?" Hyla asked Blanchett, asking about the pet cat Lucifer in the film. He continued, "I tried putting my girlfriend's cat on a leash and it just never works for me."

"That's your question?" Blanchett incredulously responded. "That's your fucking question?"

Take a look at the epic shutdown of silly questions from reporters to A-list stars:

Here's the clip that Hyla shared to his Instagram. At least he seems to have a self-deprecating sense of humor about the whole thing. And really, who's getting the last laugh anyway? Actors get asked the same questions over and over -- at least this guy got an original answer out of the Academy Award winner.

How would you have responded if you were Cate Blanchett?
