Cate Blanchett Collects Movie Props, Including Thor's Hammer

Cate Blanchett took the hammer home from the set of 'Thor: Ragnarok'.

Cate Blanchett has revealed she has Thor's hammer at home.

The 50-year-old actress has starred in several iconic movie franchises including Lord of the Rings — in which she played Galadriel — and Marvel's Thor series, where she played Hela, Thor's older sister.

And she has now revealed she has a growing collection of memorabilia from her time on the movie sets, which she has been reconnected with after clearing out her attic during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Blanchett said: "I've been clearing out my attic, and I was looking for my elf ears [which she wore as Galadriel in 'Lord of the Rings'], and I couldn't find them. Couldn't find them, but I did find Tauriel's fighting blades. Pretty cool. Some people are stocking toilet paper, but I got these."

When asked why Evangeline Lilly — who played Tauriel — doesn't have her character's swords, Blanchett then added: "I don't know! Actually ... you did not see those. Don't speak to Evangeline Lilly anytime soon."

The Oscar-winning actress, who's currently on the mini-series Mrs America —  about the fight for the Equal Rights Amendment — also shared the reason why the production of Thor: Love and Thunder in Australia was shutdown. 

She joked: "And you know how that Thor film was shut down in Australia? It wasn't anything to do with COVID-19, it's because I got the hammer. I have Mjolnir here. And I can ... look how easy I can lift it." 


Mrs America is now streaming on Fox+.
