Cara Delevingne spoke out about that uber-awkward interview
Eyebrow goddess and Paper Towns star, Cara Delevingne took to Twitter to finally share her two cents about the most awkward interview she endured on Good Morning Sacramento. Quick recap ICYMI: The morning show hosts questioned Cara’s work ethic, told her to “go take a nap,” and – oof – called her Carla.
Cara seems to be handling the whole weird situation as a good sport, and implied in her Tweet that the whole shenanigan was caused by the language/sarcasm barrier between Brits and Americans. “Some people just don’t understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour,” she Tweeted.
Sure, maybe the morning hosts couldn’t get past the –u in the British spelling of “humour,” but they crossed a professionalism line and everyone knows it. Zach Braff chimed in, tweeting, “or how it’s condescending to ask an actress if she’s read the book.” He clearly sees that Good Morning Sacramento underestimated Cara and her talent (and her literacy).
In the meantime, Good Morning Sacramento host Marianne McClary is standing by her rude comments. Yesterday, she tweeted a link to an interview she did with Sir Ian McKellan, making an underhanded dig at Cara. “Check out how a true class act deals with his jillionth interview,” the tweet says. Whoa. “True class act?” Way harsh. This is probably referring to the assumption that McClary made about Cara during their interview: that the actress was not being peppy on Good Morning Sacramento because she was a diva who was bored of giving interviews.
Sometimes it’s better to admit that you’re wrong than to continue repeating the same (unprofessional) mistake again and again. Good Morning Sacramento looks like a bunch of sticks in the mud, and Cara is hopefully getting a good laugh.
