“I had a bit of a chainsaw accident yesterday, which sounds very, very exciting, but it wasn’t,” she revealed, adding that she is “fine,” “apart from the little nick to my head.”

“Be very careful with that chainsaw. You’ve got a very famous head. I don’t think people want to see any nicks taken out of it,” responded Julia Gillard.

Cate then amusingly promised to “keep it on my shoulders.”

She and her family have been on lockdown in England amid the pandemic, and she’s been homeschooling her sons: Dashiell, 18, Roman, 16, and Ignatius, 12, and her daughter, Edith, 5.
