London: Actress Cate Blanchett says her son is urging her to take on bigger blockbuster roles after her new Woody Allen movie `Blue Jasmine` left the youngster unimpressed.

The 44-year-old `Lord Of the Rings` star`s son is movie industry savvy and has started giving his mother career advice, reported Contactmusic.

"I was telling my 11-year-old the story of `Blue Jasmine`, about a woman`s spectacular downfall on the Upper East Side (in New York), and he put his head in his hand and he says, `Mum, when are you going to make a blockbuster?`

"He goes online and he looks at all the grosses and he looks at all the films I`m in; he`s giving me career advice," Blanchett said.

Despite her roles in major Hollywood films like `The Lord of the Rings`, `The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey` and `The Curious Case of Benjamin Button`, Blanchett`s son still thinks she needs to take on bigger roles in higher-grossing movies.
