An interview with Cara Delevingne was cut short when the actress was told to “go and take a nap” and scolded by her hosts on an American morning show.

Delevingne appeared on the US morning show Good Day Sacramento via video link to promote her new film, Paper Towns, but found herself ambushed by accusations that she was “tired”, “irritated” and “in a mood” by three anchors. 

The usually affable actress quickly became hostile towards her hosts when one kicked off the interview by introducing her as ‘Carla’ Delevingne. Instead of asking incisive questions about her role and the film, she was quizzed on being busy, tired, and asked how she managed to "focus" on different projects simultaneously.

One anchor began by asking her if she had bothered the read the book the film is based on. “Uh, no I never read the book, or the script. I kind of winged it,” she deadpanned, before explaining that she had of course read the book and admired its author, John Green, greatly.

The same anchor then asked her what she liked about her character, Margo, and whether they had anything in common, to which Delevingne joked, “No, I actually hate her."

The exchange continued in this vein until a third anchor jumped in and informed her that she just didn’t seem “excited” enough. “Are you just exhausted?” he asked, eliciting a shocked look from Delevigne.

“The premiere was last night," she replied. "It was a very emotional night, felt like the end of an era. But I'm not any less excited than I was a couple of weeks ago.”

But her response failed to quash their accusations, with another telling her: “You do seem a bit irritated. Perhaps it’s just us,” prompting Delevingne to respond: “Yes, perhaps it is just you.”

“We’ll let you go then, how ’bout that?” one anchor said. “Why don’t you go take a little nap, maybe get a Red Bull?”

Delevingne was clearly taken back and could be heard muttering “too far” before she was taken off air. All three then preceded to analyse the discussion, with one declaring: “Wow! She was in a mood!” Another mused: “You make $5 million for six weeks of work, you can pretend to talk to ‘Good Day Sacramento’ with some ‘oomph’!”
