Cate Blanchett has some fans in an uproar.

The Oscar winner, 55, received backlash online for saying at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival that she is “middle class.”

Blanchett is worth $95 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

The “Ocean’s 8” star made the “middle class” comment during a press conference at Cannes, where she premiered her new movie “Rumours.”

“I’m white, I’m privileged, I’m middle class and I think one can be accused of having a bit of a white savior complex,” Blanchett said while discussing her experience with refugee filmmakers.

She continued: “But to be perfectly honest, my interaction with refugees in the field and also in resettled environments has totally changed my perspective on the world, and I’m utterly grateful for that.”

Fans slammed Blanchett on X, formerly known as Twitter, after her comment at Cannes made its rounds on social media.
