CANNES, France - Cate Blanchett had plenty of witty replies — a couple on the saucy side — as she answered sometimes wacky questions during a Cannes news conference for the upcoming "How to Train Your Dragon 2."

The two-time Oscar-winner got most of the questions at Friday's event, which also included stars America Ferrera, Jay Baruchel, Djimon Hounsou and DreamWorks co-founder Jeffery Katzenberg.

Some of the queries were a bit off-kilter: One reporter asked if Blanchett let her children play with her trophies.

"Every morning, mommy sits them down, and I get my two Oscars out and I let them stroke them for 15 minutes before they go to school if they are good," she said to laughter.

Another reporter mistakenly called her by the wrong prefix.

"It's Ms. Blanchett, not Mr. Blanchett. I've played a few men though," she quipped.

The biggest laughs came when a reporter asked how was "the experience of training your dragon?"

"How do I train my dragon?" she said naughtily. "I don't know if I want to answer that in public."

"How To Train Your Dragon 2" premiered Friday at the Cannes Film Festival out of competition.
