Cara Delevingne’s quick interview with Good Day Sacramento started off on the wrong side of awkward before she even spit out one word. The host called her “Carla” (the clip cut that part out) and Cara looked like she would rather be getting finger banged by a hawk than talk to three hosts from a Sacramento morning show. It was like many awkward first dates I’ve had, except it didn’t end with them having bad one-time sex for the hell of it.
Cara was doing a bunch of morning show interviews via satellite to promote Paper Towns, which I always read as “Paper Towels.” (“Paper Towels” sounds like a riveting biopic about the life and times of the Brawny Man.) One of the hosts asks Cara if she read the book the movie is based on and she dipped her answer in syrupy sarcasm before throwing it at them. From there, it gets worse, or better for those of you who like to work out your jaw by cringing.
The hosts throw a couple more weird questions at her and she answers them with a side-eye and sarcasm. The interview eventually becomes a full on wreck when the hosts call out the Sam the Eagle of models for being over it.
Host #1: You seem a bit irritated. Perhaps it’s just us.
Cara: No, I think it’s just you.
Host #1: I think it probably is just us. Well, on that note, we’ll let you go then. How about that? Take a little nap, maybe get a Red Bull? How about that?
Once Cara’s feed was pulled, they go in on her more by saying that she was in a mood (JEEZ LOUISE!) and that she should put some “oomph” into her interviews since she makes millions of dollars for just a few weeks of work.
Some say that we should organize an #ItGetsBetter benefit for Cara because those hosts bullied her. Some say that Cara was an asshole from the beginning. And some say that both sides look a mess. I think it was a combination of Cara being hungover, a time delay and the morning show hosts not giving a fuck and wanting to go viral. But Cara handled it all wrong. You’re not supposed to just sit there and emote with your caterpillar brows. You’re supposed to say, “I’m shutting your butt down,” before pulling off your mic and dramatically exiting. That’s how it’s done. If Cara needs some lessons, I’m sure the master Quentin Tarantino will give her some while he gives her a pedicure with his mouth.
