Cate Blanchett told the world her moral compass is 'in my vagina'


Cate Blanchett isn't exactly known for holding back.

On Tuesday night's "Late Show with Stephen Colbert," Blanchett said "The Present," the play that marks her Broadway debut, revolves around one's "moral compass" and asked "where does kindness and humanity sit in a really brutal world?"

When Colbert asked her the same question, she answered, "In my vagina."

It wasn't Blanchett's only zinger during the interview. Colbert asked why there were only eight women in the upcoming movie "Ocean's Eight," as opposed to the 11 men of "Ocean's Eleven."

"There's only eight women working in Hollywood," Blanchett replied drily.
