Cate Blanchett Canceled Over Surprising Comments – EVOL

Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett sparked a frenzy of criticism after describing herself as “middle class” during a high-profile United Nations press conference at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

Despite boasting an estimated net worth of $95 million, the “Lord of the Rings” star made the controversial comment while discussing her role as a goodwill ambassador and her efforts to promote refugee filmmakers. Blanchett responded to a question about using her celebrity to highlight lesser-known causes in a display of celebrity disconnect

“I’m white, I’m privileged, I’m middle class,” Blanchett stated, adding, “and I think one can be accused of having a bit of a white savior complex.” She continued by sharing how her work with refugees has “totally changed my perspective on the world and I am utterly grateful for that.”

The acclaimed Australian actress boasts a diverse portfolio of blockbuster films and a net worth of $95 million. Between August 2017 and August 2018 alone, Blanchett earned $13 million, securing her spot as one of the world’s ten highest-paid actresses according to Celebrity Net Worth.
