Cara Delevingne Defends Herself After Cringeworthy Interview With American Anchors

British Sensibilities or Just Plain Rude?

World-renowned supermodel and actress Cara Delevingne was brought on Good Morning Sacramento on Wednesday to help promote her upcoming film Paper Towns – and the interview couldn’t have been more disastrous.

Some say Cara Delevingne’s disposition was to blame, and others point fingers at the insensitivity of the show’s anchors, but everyone agrees that it was supremely awkward. Just look at Cara’s face…

The interview begins with the anchors mispronouncing Cara’s name, which sets the tone for the talk – though the actress makes no move to correct. Their first question for Cara?

‘Did you bother to read the book?’

Cara raises her eyebrow at the offensive question, as if asking whether or not she read the book is like asking a newsperson whether or not they took the time to read over a story before they reporting on it. But she moves forward, making light of the situation with a sarcastic joke.

“Uh, no. I never read the book or the script,” she replies. “I kind of winged it. No, of course, [I did.] John Green is an incredible author, so really if you haven’t read his books, you should.

Things are going great.

The anchors take offense to Cara’s reaction and sense of humor and begin to call her out, asking how she’s doing since she looks “exhausted” and later even calling her “irritated.” The interview continues to devolve as the faux-friendly Americans butt heads with the stoic derisiveness of the Brit.

After being insulted a number of times, Cara foregoes the remainder of the interview, and the professional anchors continue to publicly bash Cara for her attitude like a bunch of schoolgirls.

Cara took to her Twitter and referenced the failed interview, chocking up the misunderstanding to her British sensibilities, but the American anchors have yet to really back down on the moment, pretty much just “LOL”ing at the whole situation.

Which direction should the apologies come from?
