paper towns

In July Cara Delevingne had a very awkward moment when she was on the promotional trail for her film Paper Towns. The model-turned-actress was interviewed by anchors for Good Day Sacramento when things took a turn for the worst. 

Things got off to a rocky start when one of the anchors introduced her as 'Carla', and then just went downhill for there. 

Her signature sarcasm and humour didn't translate to the American hosts and by the end they asked if the star was "exhausted", Her reply: "Perhaps it's just you," led to quite a social media stir. Once the interview ended the hosts continued to slate Cara with comments such as:

"You make $5m for six weeks of work, you can pretend to talk to Good Day Sacramento with some oomph."

We thought that everyone had moved on from the incident by now but it seems that at least one celeb still had something to add to the misadventure. 

Richard Madden, AKA Robb Stark from Game Of Thrones, made reference to the ordeal when interviewed by Style magazine:

"It made her seem ungrateful. It showed her age. For Cinderella I did 6 weeks of those interviews."

Ouch, don't hold back Richard. He added:

"If you're not capable of doing that gracefully then don't do it."

Cara did not take the criticism lightly and took to social media to sound off:

Fans reacted expertly:

Oh and then Richard had to come back and try to diffuse the situation:

When will they ever learn?

Model-turned actress Cara Delevingne hit the headlines for the wrong reasons yesterday when a seriously cringeworthy TV interview of hers went viral, and now she has spoken out about the incident.

The interview, which Cara gave via satellite link-up to US TV show Good Morning Sacramento, got a mixed reaction from viewers. Things got off to a rocky start when the show's main anchor introduced the Paper Towns star as "Carla" Delevingne, and got worse as a five-second satellite delay combined with Cara's sarcastic answers led to a disastrous few minutes of live TV. 

Some claimed the anchors were at fault for patronising Cara and not doing their research, while others said Cara's attitude was the problem, and her insistence on giving sarky answers throughout the interview. 

Taking to Twitter last night, Cara herself said her brand of sarcastic humour simply got lost in translation on American TV. "Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour," she wrote.

Fellow actor Zach Braff soon responded with "or how it's condescending to ask an actress if she's read the book," in reference to one of the first questions asked in the interview.

The response from others in the entertainment industry wasn't so supportive, however. Earlier in the day, actress Whoopi Goldberg slammed Cara on The View, saying, "You've got to suck it up… She's not a famous actress, she's a newbie… I'm famous."

Another actress, Chrishell Strause, described it as "career suicide," which didn't go down too well with Cara:

Bet that's the last time "Carla" agrees to appear on Good Morning Sacramento…

Well, someone got up on the wrong side of the bed.

Cara Delevingne has been on the promotional trail for her upcoming film Paper Towns over the last few months, but it seems the constant interviews got a bit too much for her when she appeared on a US morning show this week.

The model-turned-actress was interview by the hosts of Good Day Sacramento via Skype link-up, but couldn't seem to get on board with their chirpiness. Things got off to a rocky start when the female anchor introduced her as "Carla" Delevingne, and the mood wasn't helped by a five-second Skype delay which saw the actress talking over the hosts numerous times.

Cara's signature sarcasm and smart humour didn't seem to translate to US TV, with the hosts getting a little overwhelmed when she answered repeated questions with snarky answers. When asked if she had read the book on which Paper Towns was based, the 22-year-old deadpanned, "Uh, no I never read the book, or the script. I kind of winged it."

Later on she responded to a question about her character Margo by saying, "No, I actually hate her," another joke that fell flat with the Good Day Sacramento crew.

In the end, the anchors asked if she was "exhausted" or simply "irritated," to which Cara replied, "Perhaps it is just you." Ouch.

As soon as the Skype link-up ended, the hosts continued to slate their interviewee, with one saying, "Wow! She was in a mood!" and another adding, "You make $5 million for six weeks of work, you can pretend to talk to Good Day Sacramento with some oomph."

Talk about car crash TV…

Cara Delevigne has never been one to hold back when she has something to say.

So when Time magazine caught up with the actress while she was on the set of Paper Towns, she had a lot to say.

She spoke about how difficult to get serious roles in film as people in the industry don’t recognise her as a serious actress. She also talked about how different she finds acting from modelling.

Most importantly, she commented on the hate that she receives from time to time.

The 22-year old will star in the highly anticipated DC film Suicide Squad, to be released next year. There were many fans of the franchise however who didn’t think she deserved the role.

"If anyone just thought I was trying to pad my resume, they can suck my"—she stopped to consider her word choice—"boobs."

Nice, Cara.

While she is probably one of the fashion industry’s more quirky characters (or have you not seen her onesie collection?), she says she takes her acting very seriously:

"I take what roles I do very seriously. I always want to portray a strong female.”

Not surprising seeing as the star has always stood up for herself and what she believes in as of late.

She has not only spoken out about her acting career, but a recent Vogue cover article has also sparked some controversy for the former Burberry model.

Speaking to the New York Times, Cara said that, in case anyone misunderstood, “my sexuality is not a phase. I am who I am.”

The Vogue article had led to an online petition that protested the suggestion of Cara’s sexuality being a phase.

The Paper Towns actress has been quick to stop people from speculating about her personal life and while she found the online protest “flattering”, she didn’t think there was anything “malicious” in the article itself.

Cara Delevinge is currently in Australia doing press for her new film Paper Towns and gushing about her girlfriend as she goes.

The 22-year old British actress, and former model, has also been the topic of much conversation recently since she’s decided to make the leap from modelling to acting, and how her new and happier life is apparently due to her new girlfriend.

She said “I’ve been pretty open about myself from the beginning” and she thinks “it’s wonderful that you know, it’s being accepted more and more.”

Cara spoke to Daily Mail Australia about her sexuality and same-sex marriage becoming more accepted.

Cara also had a few choice words for Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot saying “Tony Abbott you better listen to the rest of the world and carry on. Go with it,” with reference to allowing same-sex marriage. She hopes the country can follow in the footsteps of Ireland and the USA.

While saying that she’s “never been happier” now that she’s turned her attention to acting, she was also quick to point out that she doesn’t like “hanging up hats, I like keeping them on.” So maybe she won’t be living the fashion world for good then.

She counts herself as lucky to be in her current position and commented that “I'm not going to quit, I'm just not modelling as much, because I'm working and performing.”

This comes just days after she left Storm Models agency to be represented soely by the US agency William Morris.

There’s also been reports that she and her girlfriend St Vincent (Annie Clark) have been making music together.

A source claims that “Cara’s recorded music with Pharrell Williams and she’s working and writing with her girlfriend Annie.”

Cara has only spoken publicly about her relationship for the first time in recently and has been quite open about how she feels Annie has had a very positive effect on her life.

Never one to disappear into the background, at the premiere Cara opted for some eye-catching orange eye shadow with a fabulous Dion Less cut-out dress as she struck some of her signature goofy poses for selfies with fans.

According to Cara Delevinge, she can find fun anywhere, and for a long time she found that fun being an intense party girl who just couldn’t stop eating McDonalds.

Making her Vogue US cover debut in the magazine's July issue, the 22-year old opens up about how her excessive lifestyle started to pose a problem for her career.

She told the magazine: “After turning 20 and eating McDonald’s all the time and drinking too much, it started to show on my stomach and on my face.” Her management were not impressed with the young model and she’s been living a much more demure life.

She says that these days “I’m not allowed to drink. I’m not allowed good food.” Cara herself think it’s a bit harsh, saying that the fashion industry is a bit of mystery to her.

She comments that “I’ve succeeded in a business where for years I had no restraint,” and it took its toll on her body. The fashion model committed some industry sins when she let her indulgences lead to a less than svelte physique. 

She did have incredible success as a fashion model both on the runway and in campaigns for Mulberry and Topshop. She also has nearly two times the amount of Instagram followers than social media powerhouse Lady Gaga.

Modelling however, isn’t enough for the star.  Appearing in her first leading role in the film adaptation of John Green’s Paper Towns (released 17 August), Cara reveals she has always wanted to act, not model.

Acting has been the ultimate goal for her, saying: “The thrill of acting is making a character real. Modelling is the opposite of real. It’s being fake in front of the camera.”

Cara discovered the thrill of acting when she was a young teen as a way to channel some of her emotional distress. Now though, it’s become her career and she couldn’t be happier with the direction her work has taken.

She also credits her girlfriend, St. Vincent (real name Annie Clark) as being part of the reason why she’s so happy in herself at the moment.

It could also be something to do with the seven roles she’s landed in upcoming films including an adaption of the Amanda Knox story.

This time last year, Cara Delevingne was the must-have model for brands all over the world, from Chanel to Victoria's Secret to Topshop and everything in between.

Fast forward twelve months, and she is rarely seen on the catwalks, except for a once-off appearance at Chanel's Paris Fashion Week show back in March.

The English beauty has traded in fashion for film, and says she's infinitely more content with her life as a result.

Cara, who was rumoured to have been cut from the annual Victoria's Secret show in December 2014 as she looked too "bloated," told the Wall Street Journal that she's sick of being judged by her appearance.

"It's horrible living in a world where I'll get a call from someone saying, 'So-and-so says you were partying a lot and you were looking this way and you need to lose weight,'" she said in the new interview.

"It makes me so angry. If you don't want to hire me, don't hire me."

Even at the height of her modelling career, Cara made a conscious effort to display her more playful, cheeky side on social media, rather than trying to keep up the  sultry persona that she was required to display in campaigns and on the catwalk.

"People see a pretty girl, and they expect to see a pretty face," she said of her notoriously silly selfies. "I'm not going to do that."

The rookie actress, who has a lead role in the upcoming John Green film Paper Towns, says she is no longer so self-conscious about her looks. "With acting, the last thing you do is try to look pretty," she explained. "Modeling actually makes acting harder – it makes you so self-aware."

Cara admitted that she's also cut down on partying and drinking, and is embracing a new, more health-conscious lifestyle. "I've never been so good. When I started looking after myself, that's when I started getting acting roles."

We are loving Cara's new attitude!

Cara Delevingne has been appearing on the catwalks less and less lately, with only one appearance at the recent Paris Fashion Week.

Now it's clear where she's been hiding though – as the first official trailer for her new film Paper Towns has just been released.

Based on the book by The Fault In Our Stars author John Green, Paper Towns stars Cara as the enigmatic and unavailable Margo, who has always been the object of her neighbour Quentin (Nat Wolff)'s affection.

Aside from a small part in Anna Karenina back in 2012, this is Cara's first time on the big screen, but with five other movies also in production at the moment, it looks like we'll be seeing more and more of Cara in our cinemas!

UK model Cara Delevingne seems to be everywhere at the moment and it looks like she’s only getting bigger!

Last week the actress spoke about her small role in The Face of An Angel, based on the story of Amanda Knox.  Now though, she’s been announced as the lead in what is set to be a huge film for 2015. She’ll be playing the role of Margo in Paper Towns, based on the book by John Green – author of the young adult favourite, The Fault In Our Stars.

The Fault In Our Stars made huge waves at the box office when the film adaptation was released earlier this year, and we bet Paper Towns will be no different. Exciting!

The plot of the book centres on Cara’s character, who runs away from home, leaving clues behind to lead her lovesick friend Quentin to her hiding place. Nat Wolff, who played Isaac in The Fault In Our Stars, will play the besotted Quentin.

Author John Green tweeted his excitement at the casting news earlier today:

And Cara seemed equally elated in her reply to director Jake Schreier!

Cara has had a few breakout roles so far – she starred in the 2012 adaptation of Anna Karenina, and next year she will appear alongside Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried in Pan. And that's all on top of strutting the catwalk for Chanel and being the face of both Topshop and Burberry. Talk about a high achiever!
