Cara Delevingne Should Star In ‘Looking for Alaska’ & Here’s Why

Cara Delevingne Did an Interview With a Sacramento News Station, and It Was a Hilarious Train Wreck.

Press-junket interviews are usually boring—a chance for actors to hone their sound bites as they’re asked the same questions hundreds of times by a never-ending line of journalists.Maybe the folks at Good Day Sacramento were trying to sound hip when they started giving crap this week, or maybe they thought they were being clever because some researcher had read that the Paper Towns star fell asleep once (er, twice) during a day spent with a Vogue writer. It was the tense interview watched around the globe, and on Wednesday, July 29, Paper Towns stardecided to share her side of the story after the anchors of Good Morning Sacramento called her out on the air. “Some people just don’t understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour,” the English supermodel and actress tweeted after her televised interview went viral. However, it’s unusual for the people of the Internet to side with the celebrity — generally, the stars are the ones mocked for their behavior, not the interviewers.

After the reporters mispronounced her name as “Clara” and asked Delevingne if she’d bothered to read John Green’s novel, Paper Towns — the book on which her movie is based — the Brit appeared slightly annoyed. “Uh, no. Not so much with the latest entry into the Uncomfortable Interview Hall of Fame, which occurred last week when “Paper Towns” star and British supermodel Cara Delevingne appeared remotely to talk with “Good Day Sacramento.” The three-minute chat with the local CW station started as anchor Marianne McClary accidentally called her “Carla,” and things went downhill from there. The interview goes from banal to train wreck in 60 seconds flat—and while Delevingne could have been a little more animated and receptive, Good Day Sacramento’s anchors get credit for turning a lackluster interview into a disaster by asking the stupidest questions imaginable and basically ignoring Delevingne’s answers. Delevingne was unimpressed with the first question lobbed her way by McClary, who asked her about the John Green novel on which the movie is based: “Did you get a chance to read it or do you even have time to sit and read these days you’re so busy?” “No, I never read the book.

No, of course, [I did.] John Green is an incredible author, so really if you haven’t read his books, you should.” The anchors went on to call Delevingne out, saying she looked “exhausted” and “irritated,” which she denied. But after being so forthcoming for more than a decade after hitting rock bottom, you’d maybe expect that the media would start giving him a break and not purposefully bring up his past. Delevingne looked understandably confused. “No, I don’t know where that comes from,” she replied. “I love what I do…it’s my passion, all of these things…so it’s not too hard.” McClary asked if she had anything in common with her character, the free-spirited Margo. “No, I actually hate her,” Delevingne shot back as the anchors started to realize this was not going well. “Yeah, of course, we have a lot in common,” Delevingne clarified, adding she had used some of Margo’s quips in real life before she even read the script. It’s hard to imagine the anchors treating an older actor—or a male actor—with quite as much disdain as they do Delevingne, but luckily the anchors take the high road after Delevingne signs off by gossiping about her mood and playing a sound effect of hissing cats over her photo.

Well, Downey must have thought it was time for that, too, because when he was quizzed about his “dark periods” by the U.K.’s Channel 4 News, he just up and left. That’s when entertainment anchor Mark Allen jumped in, telling Delevingne that he loved the movie because the teens in the film “speak like middle-aged screenwriters rather than the awkward, dopey adolescent that I was.” Then things took a turn: “I saw you in London talking a couple weeks ago on TV, and you seemed a lot more excited about it than you do right now. He explained a few days later to Howard Stern, “I’m one of those guys who I’m always assuming the social decorum is in play, and that we’re promoting a superhero movie, a lot of kids are going to see it, and that just has nothing to do with your creepy dark agenda.” The reporter was asking the questions and she was lobbing ’em back—right at his head. LOL.” His colleague McClary, however, was not willing to back down, and posted another actor’s interview with the caption, ”Check out how a true class act deals with his jillionth interview: Sir Ian McKellan (sic)!” The challenges of adapting to the U.S. when her family emigrated from Ukraine was “the most mundane subject possible.” But all told (or not told), she deemed it a “good interview.” (That slap you heard was hand hitting forehead.) After a sit-down that was uncomfortable for a variety of reasons, gifts the Runner, Runner star with a rubber mold of her butt.

Maybe I had a bit more energy, it’s the morning.” “Well then on that note, we’ll let you go then, how about that?” McClary offered. “We’ll let you go take a little nap, maybe get a Red Bull, how about that?” Allen tried to get back on track, throwing out the plug: “‘Paper Towns,’ coming out soon. She’s also in that Taylor Swift video ‘Bad Blood,’ everybody probably recognizes her from that as well. ” “Yes, rush out and see it, won’t you?” McClary deadpanned. So ingrained in the culture is this exchange, Howard Stern even quizzed the pop icon about it during an interview last year, during which she admitted that she was mad at the time—but it sounded as though she also had a lot on her mind. “I was in a weird mood that day,” she recalled. “I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up on life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta.” The Oscar winner naturally took his embarrassment lumps with aplomb later, cracking, “I wasn’t actually sleeping. But then she wasn’t,” he said. “But still!” Allen protested. “You make $5 million for six weeks worth of work, you can pretend to talk to ‘Good Day Sacramento’ with some oomph!” There’s no doubt that Delevingne was being sarcastic.

After Delevingne signed off, the anchors continued to lick their wounds. “She was so peppy on UK,” Allen said, mimicking her British accent: “Oh it was delightful!
