Who knew Cate Blanchett was such a kidder?

"In honor of this extraordinary award, I’m not wearing any underwear this evening,” Cate told the audience at Saturday’s Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala, accepting her Career Achievement award. She added, ‘I’m joking” but her remark was all but drowned out by applause as her Babel costars Rinko Kukuchi convulsed in giggles and Brad Pitt began signing with his hands to explain what she’d said.

Want more of the Brad and Cate show?  From a not-signing Brad, "I’m currently working on ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ with Cate but the movie’s too weird to describe in less than five minutes."
