Things got off to a bad, although hilarious, start when one of the news anchors introduced her as “Carla,” not by her real name, Cara.
The British model picked up on it immediately. “Carla?” she mumbled. Right off the bat, things went down hill.
The interview was being conducted by a local CBS television station KVOR in Sacramento, California’s state capital. You’d think anchors Marianne McClary, Ken Rudolph and Kurtis Ming would know how to conduct an interview.
Their questions were ridiculous, befuddling Delevingne, who obviously is still a rookie when it comes to doing movie promotion. She’s been hyping her new movie “Paper Towns,” her first film as a lead actress.
It may have been just too early for the young actress, who was doing live interviews from studios in New York City via satellite.
After the interview wore on the anchors sensed her irritation. “She was in a mood.. oooh wee,” said McClary. “Jeeze Louise, everything was sarcastic.”
“You make $5 million for six weeks’ work and you can pretend to talk to ‘Good Day Sacramento’ with some oomph,” chimed in Ming.
Here’s a sample of the conversation.
McClary: So the movie is based on a best selling book by John Green. You play Margo the star character. The book is taught in a lot of high schools. Did you get a chance to read it or do you even have time to sit and read?
Delevingne: No I never read the book or the script actually. I kind of winged it.
You get the picture.
Apparently, Delevingne has a dry English sense of humor.
“Some people just don’t understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour,” she wrote afterward on Twitter.
McClary was in rare form. She signed off on the interview by telling Delevingne to take a nap and drink a Red Bull.
