Cara Delevingne Speaks Out On THAT Painfully Awkward Interview...

Cara Delevingne was victim of a seriously patronising interview, the video of which has since gone viral. And now, she's broken her silence on the whole ordeal...

Cara Delevingne has made the headlines once again after a video of her latest interview went viral, and while some are branding the starlet as 'rude', we reckon that it was the interviewers at Good Morning Sacramento who made the entire situ unbearably awkward. In case you've missed the buzz, here's the video that's doing the rounds...

Assuming you've watch it, it's easy to see why the interview takes a turn for the worst from the first question. Rule number one when it comes to interviewing someone, famous or not, is to, you know, get their name right. Not only is this embarrassing on the host's part to have called her 'Carla', to do that in a 'normal' situation and not correct yourself is just plain rude. Linked up by a video feed, it takes the star a moment to realise they've got her name wrong, but she doesn't make a fuss. Atta' girl.

Granted, the 22-year-old former model is known for her fun-loving side—have you seen her Instagram—but the next question has been deliberately asked in an attempt to question her professionalism. The female host apparently thinks it's appropriate to ask whether Cara actually read the book that her new film Paper Towns is based on, to which Cara delivers a very on point answer. 

Clearly being sarcastic, she quips: 'Uh, no I never read the book, or the script. I kind of winged it,' before smiling and explaining that she loves the story and that everyone should read it and the rest of John Green's novels. As an actress who has done nothing but gush about how blessed she feels to have been given the amazing opportunity of having a lead role in a film, it should kind of be a given that she would have prepared for the part in every way she could—reading the book should come as standard. However, it gets worse... 

While the rest of the interview is almost too much to bear in the awkward stakes, Cara is clearly taken a back when another host accuses her of not being as 'excited' as she has been about the film. Trying her best to laugh off the blatantly ill-mannered statement, she says: 'The premiere was last night. It was a very emotional night, felt like the end of an era. But I'm not any less excited than I was a couple of weeks ago,' before adding, 'It is the morning.'

Then, as the interview draws to a close, the hosts decide to give Cara one final parting shot. After one of them pokes fun at her expense saying that she's 'a little irritated', the female host once again interjects by making the condescending remark, 'We'll let you go take a little nap, maybe get a Red Bull, how about that?'

Cara can be seen on screen mouthing the words 'too far' to the producer at her end, and the filming goes dead, after which the hosts go on to call her moody and start to do impressions of her British accent. And we journalists wonder how we sometimes get a bad name... 

Yes, our British sense of humour may not always translate accordingly but one thing's for sure, Cara was NOT in the wrong—not in our eyes anyway. Being asked stupid and patronising questions at 8am in the morning by a bunch of snobbish and insulting interviewers would make even the most patient of us crack under the pressure, so kudos to Cara for keeping her cool throughout. Now that's what we call professional... 

And now, after the video went cray cray on the Internet, Cara's finally broken her silence on the whole debacle, basically reiterating what we've just said. Kindred spirit? We think so...
