Model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne, touring around to promote her latest film Paper Towns, stopped by Good Day Sacramento on Tuesday for a quick interview. And apparently, the anchors weren’t aware of her playful and sarcastic personality, as the interview instantly turned south.
The first awkward moment was when the host asked Delevingne if she had read the book prior to filming. In true Cara form, she replied, “Uh, no. I never read the book or the script. I kind of winged it. No, of course. It’s a lovely book. John Green is an incredible author, so really if you haven’t read his books, you should.”
And it only went downhill from there. The crew began to bash her for being tired and unexcited about the movie. “You seemed a lot more excited about [the movie] than you do right now?” one newscaster asked. “Are you just exhausted?”
“No, I mean, I’m still very excited,” Delevingne explained. “The premiere was last night and it felt like the end of an era, but I’m not any less excited than I was a couple of weeks ago.” She then went on to say that she’s not a morning person and that perhaps she had a bit more energy during the premiere, which led to the crew asking her if she was annoyed. “You seem a bit irritated, perhaps it’s just us?” “No,” she replied, “I think it’s just you.”
The newscaster then cut the interview short and snapped, “We’ll let you go then, how about that? We’ll let you go and take a nap and maybe have a Red Bull.” Brush it off, Cara. Brush it off.
