Cate Blanchett Is Scared Of Lingerie

Cate Blanchett is a beautiful, talented, successful woman… and she also happens to be a woman who’s extremely awkward about lingerie and in fact still prefers granny panties and can’t bring herself to go out shopping for fancy, frilly undergarments.

From People:

“[People] would be horrified if they could see my underwear drawer. I swear to God, the only reason I take jobs and do photoshoots is so I can get more underpants,” she told PeopleStyle, laughing, at an event celebrating SK-II’s Mid-Day Essence and their just-opened N.Y.C. pop-up shop (she’s the brand’s face). “I still have underpants my mother made me in high school. I just — something about going to the lingerie section, I don’t know what — I get overwhelmed, I never know what to buy. So I have the most embarrassing, embarrassing underwear. It’s so old at this point, it’s like, ‘prison gray’.” (When we asked, also laughing, if that’s what she wears under all her custom Armani, she said, completely deadpan, “Yes.”)

I feel like that’s completely ridiculous, because most women aren’t wearing hardcore lingerie on a daily basis. We have regular old underwear that normal people wear, not lace garters and teddies that we put under our work clothes or weekend sweats. She’s not really all that weird, right?
