Cate’s outing comes after award-winning actor Ke Huy Quan recalled some advice that the actress one shared with him.
The star is still on cloud nine since winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Everything Everywhere All At Once in March.
The actor, 51, posed with his Oscar for the cover story of Variety, one day after his big win.
Sharing the poignant advice during a recent interview, he said: ‘I attended an event recently and sat next to Cate Blanchett.
‘I told her that I don’t know what I’m going to do next, but I feel I have a responsibility to do something good, and that I don’t want to disappoint all the people that have support me.’
‘And she said, “Just go with your heart and be irresponsible: Don’t worry about what other people think. Choose something that you believe in, choose something that you love, and things will work out.'”
Ke does not have any projects lined up at the moment but previously wrapped two series American Born Chinese and Loki season two, as well as the movie The Electric State.
Two-time Oscar winner Cate was up for her third Academy Award with a Best Actress nomination for her work in the psychological drama Tár.
Unfortunately she missed out at the event when the award was won by Michelle Yeoh for her role in the sci-fi movie.
Malaysian-born Yeoh is the first Asian woman to win the Best Actress award.
