We smell a feud brewing! ‘Game of Thrones’ actor, Richard Madden, is giving his two cents on Cara Delevingne, slamming the model turned actress for being ungrateful!
Back in July, Cara Delevingne, 23, gave a now-infamous interview in which the Brit held her own in the face of some serious condescension from the interviewers. The short interview quickly went viral, and it seemed that everyone had an opinion– including Richard Madden! The former Game of Thrones actor, who also starred in this year’s live-action Cinderella, shared his thoughts on Cara’s response and essentially told her that she needs to drop the ‘tude if she wants to make it as an actor!
“It was unprofessional,” Richard told Style. “It made her seem ungrateful. She showed her age. For Cinderella, I did weeks of those interviews, where you get asked the same eight questions.”
Wow, God forbid a 23-year-old woman shows her age of 23 years old. The nerve.
Well, Richard’s criticisms of Cara didn’t stop there. In fact, he suggested that perhaps she should just stick to modeling and give up this whole acting thing. “If you’re not capable of doing that gracefully, then don’t do it,” he said, referring to the publicity stipulations when starring in films.
Well, if Richard is hoping to elicit some sort of apology from Cara on behalf of her behavior, he may want to look elsewhere. Following the interview initially, Cara immediately took to Twitter to clear the air. “Some people just don’t understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour,” she wrote. You can rewatch the interview below.
So we’ve definitely got some opposing viewpoints here, and we want to hear from you, HollywoodLifers. Do you think Cara’s interview was “unprofessional” as Robert said? Or is it not at all his place to discuss Cara’s interview skills?
