In doing so, she makes “life hell” for her neighbors.
In a tranquil coastal town in Cornwall, England, Cate Blanchett’s behavior is currently causing quite a stir. The Hollywood star is renovating his luxury home – to the chagrin of the residents.
Cate Blanchett, 54, is one of Hollywood’s leading character actresses, has already won two Oscars in the premier categories of “Best Actress” and “Best Supporting Actress” and has another clean slate – but now it’s getting a stain. Because the actress is criticized by her neighbors.
Cate Blanchett angers residents: “It’s making our lives hell”
Mawgan Porth is a tranquil coastal village in north Cornwall that, according to British media reports, has developed into a “Hollywood by the sea” in recent years. In addition to acting greats such as Jason Momoa, 44, Stanley Tucci, 62, and Jamie Dornan, 41, who are said to have purchased a property on the Atlantic coast, Cate Blanchett is also the first star to enjoy the beautiful English countryside since 2020. Her PR representative once confirmed this to the Daily Mail. However, the peace and tranquility of the popular celebrity and surfing spot is beginning to falter. One big reason: The renovation work on Blanchett’s house is said to be making “life hell” for the residents, according to “The Sun”.
After the Australian-American actress purchased the approximately 1.6 million pound (equivalent to approximately 1.8 million euros) cottage on the cliffs of Mawgan Porth, it was then said to have been demolished to create an ecologically sustainable house with five Bedrooms and a pool to be built. The noise of the construction work is more than annoying for the residents of the sleepy town. One resident complained to The Sun: “If you open a window you can hear the drilling. It makes our lives hell.”
Private jets, construction work etc.: The idyll of Mawgan Porth is destroyed
Not only the construction work, but also the resulting increase in truck traffic would clog the roads and significantly affect living standards. Added to this is the noise of the helicopters and private jets that are increasingly heading to Newquay regional airport, a few kilometers away.
Another resident also emphasizes that the influx of Hollywood celebrities and the associated work would have a negative impact on tourism. He explains: “Tourism is very important here. This disruption has not exactly made the owner popular.”
Rents would also rise and the landscape would change. Traditional bungalows from the 1930s are giving way to “James Bond-like Lego blocks” that no one can afford. The idyllic area is gradually being “destroyed”.
