Cara Delevingne is one of Hollywood's rare breakout stars. That's because the British model likes to keep it real when it comes to her Instagram photos and her candid interviews.
Delevingne, 22, has been ruthlessly promoting her new film, Paper Towns. The model, who's known for her whacky sense of humor, may have come off as standoffish during her awkward interview with news anchors on an American morning show. Delevingne also offended the reporters with her sarcastic remarks.
But Cara is just being herself. What did they expect her to do? Jump up and down and perform cart wheels? It was Cara's responsibility to do an interview in the early hours of the morning, American time, for that matter. It's obvious that Cara was feeling a little tired and jet lagged from her trip, but she did her best to keep herself professional and poised during the interview.
The anchors may not have liked the expressions she made during the interview, but she's always been expressive. That's one of the reasons why she's an actress and a model.
The Paper Towns star was told by the anchors on Good Day Sacramento that she seemed moody during her interview. Delevingne's interview was with hosts Mark Allen, Marianna McClary, and Kenneth Rudolph. To kick things off, Delevingne was asked if she ever read the Paper Towns book or if she reads at all. She responded with a joke and everyone laughed.
Apparently, things were going well, until the anchors asked Cara more unprofessional questions.
"Do you find that it's easier for you to focus because you're so busy? If you had downtime, maybe it wouldn't be so easy for you? What do you think?"Delevingne was clueless on the question, but tried her best to answer it. The Chanel model was met with more strange questions from the anchors.
"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. Are you just exhausted?"The supermodel bluntly responded that she was just tired because it was early in the morning. After all, Cara has been busy promoting Paper Towns for the past few weeks. She was at another premiere party, which probably lasted until the early morning hours. Cara was then met with a snappy response from one of the hosts.
One of the hosts said: "You do seem a bit irritated. Perhaps it's just us."
One of the anchors said to the other: "She was in a mood!"Cara Delevingne later took to Twitter to defend herself. According to her, not everyone can understand her sarcastic remarks or her "British sense of humor." She also retweeted support from fans and other celebrities.
Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour

@Caradelevingne or how it's condescending to ask an actress if she's read the book.

I do. :) https://t.co/4Uve6kcnPYKenneth Ruldoph and Marianne McClary took to Twitter to still place the blame on the model and actress -- and not themselves for staging the awkward interview.

Check out how a true class act deals with his jillionth interview: Sir Ian McKellan! « Good Day Sacramento http://t.co/YlyqmzpcwzUsually it's Good Day L.A., not Good Day Sacramento, that's usually known for its rude hosts and awkward interviews. The morning talk show has appeared on the Soup many times. Maybe Sacramento is hoping to make an appearance on Joel McHale's show this week.As for Cara Delevingne, she was obviously exhausted from promo and interviews. If Delevingne were a man, it's clear that she wouldn't be met with the same response that she received from the news anchors.
