Sure she has an Oscar, but does Cate Blanchett have any taste in food?

On "The Tonight Show" Friday night Blanchett and Leno talked about their various food obsessions. She loves condiments, and eats sausages just for the ketchup, she explained.

She then said she eats "ketchup on pasta" sometimes.

Italian Leno balked and a serious back-and-forth ensued with the two talking about the difference between ketchup and tomato sauce and disbelief she actually eats the former with pasta.

After agreeing she'd be fine with "a bowl of spaghetti and a bottle of ketchup," Australian Blanchett backed off and claimed it "might be a semantic thing."
