Cara Delevingne has struck back at Game Of Thrones star Richard Madden after he dissed her interview on Good Day Sacramento.
In case you missed it, the actor called the model ‘unprofessional’ after she was a teeny bit sarcastic in a live interview whilst promoting Paper Towns.
‘It was unprofessional,’ said Richard, who played Robb Stark in the hit show. ‘It made her seem ungrateful. She showed her age. I did six weeks of those interviews, where you get asked the same eight questions.’
The 29-year-old actor added: ‘If you’re not capable of doing it gracefully, don’t do it.’
But Cara has clearly gotten wind of his comments,and has taken to Twitter to slam the actor in a big way. Brace yourselves…
‘I have no idea who you are but I think it’s little desperate for a grown man to be bad mouthing someone they don’t know’, she tweeted. ‘If you really want attention that badly, try focusing on your own work and not other people’s.’ Eeek!
Madden has so yet to reply, but we’re sure of one thing – you do NOT get on the wrong side of Ms D.
To recap, this is what happened: During an interview appearance to promote her new film Paper Towns, Cara shot back at the talk show hosts with sarcastic humour (we mean, it started with the question of whether she had actually read the story for the film she’s currently starring in – AWKS).
But it all just seemed to confuse the Good Day Sacramento presenters, after they told her she seemed like she needed ‘a nap’. Oh dear.

Eesh. While it was painful to watch, Cara herself defended her reaction on Twitter, summing it up nicely by stating: ‘Some people just don’t understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour.’
And whilst Richard might have taken offence, other stars had Cara’d back. American Scrubs star Zach Braff was quick to defend Ms Delevingne, admitting that her interviewers were ‘condescending’…
And Boy George also backed the Paper Towns star…
Stateside viewers must have been left equally confused and uncomfortable too.
Also, this isn’t the first time that good ol’ Brit culture has baffled our American brothers and sisters.
1. English Breakfast?
Buzzfeed conducted a video study of Americans sampling a tasty fry-up for the first time. And the mix of confusion and wonder was something to behold.
Especially when fried bread was introduced. One taster gushed: “my tastebuds are telling me that this is deep fried with butter… And it’s fantastic!”
Another agreed: “who makes better toast? England.”
2. Cheeky Nando’s
Twitter was a hilarious place when this hashtag was at its height of popularity.
Not only could the Americans just not grasp the concept of what a ‘cheeky’ Nandos is. But when cockney slang was used by innocent Brit peeps tying their utmost to explain, it just muddied the waters even further.
We love that Tumblr accounts were set up by Americans to discuss and solve the mystery.
Now that’s dedication.
3. Beans. On toast?
As if the Nando’s question wasn’t time-consuming enough, another Brit food favourite is causing a right old stir.
Seriously. Are we okay?
4. They know what topics to steer clear of.
We’re still not over it, Cadbury.
5. Brown sauce.
Guys, it’s not manufactured in the Houses Of Parliament. We understand that the label may be misleading…
