Cara Delevingne is finally giving her two-cents on the awkward television interview seen around the world. The model-turned-actress made an appearance on Good Day Sacramento to promote Paper Towns, and the results were truly cringeworthy—including moments where they tell her that she seems "a bit irritated" and to "take a nap."
The talented beatboxer blames the misunderstanding on the anchors' inability to grasp sarcasm or a "British sense of humour." She also responded to fellow actress Chrishell Stause, sarcastically thanking her for her "support" where she tweeted, "let her be herself and hand her the rope." Delevingne has since retweeted supporter Zach Braff who added, "[...] it's condescending to ask an actress if she's read the book."
