How Cara Delevingne Dealt With Rude Interviewers

And what we can learn from her.

Cara Delevingne has been the subject of news reports lately, and it's not just because of her amazing performance as Margo Roth Spiegelman in Paper Towns. The model-actress has also been making the headlines because of an interview she did with Good Day Sacramento which went horribly wrong. The hosts were rude to her and as we all know, Cara isn't the type of person who doesn't fight back. Watch the video and see for yourselves.

She's been getting mixed reactions from people but mostly, they're messages of support. The latest person to express one is none other than Paper Towns author and Cara's friend John Green who wrote in a blog post that Cara "doesn't exist to feed your narrative or your news feed—and that's precisely why she's so f***ing interesting." Since the incident, she has also tweeted about her position regarding the issue.

Isn't she admirable? No one really has time for rude people and if the rudeness is just a little too much (like when it's being done over and over again on national TV), then it's time you step up. Here are the things we learned about dealing with rude people and even rude questions from Cara herself—because there are just days when you can't be bothered with rudeness.

 1  With your facial expressions.

The moment Cara was introduced as "Cara Deveen," we knew the interview was going downhill a bit. We saw how surprised the actress was, but she tried to keep her cool. Not that Cara was being arrogant, but what kind of interviewer goes on an interview without even knowing what his interviewee's name is, right? And sure, you can let that pass, but if you keep asking questions that seem to belittle a person, then that's it. That's more than enough. Ever been in a class where your someone keeps calling you with the wrong name and tells you things you don't really want to hear?

 2  With humor.

When Cara was asked if she's read Paper Towns,  the actress responded with sarcasm and said that no, she hasn't read it. Not even the script. She just winged it. Of course, we knew she was joking! We all know how all actors who star in a movie adaptation take their time to read the book because that's how they research about the story they'll be in and the character they'll be playing. The question actually sounded like it was belittling Cara. Dealing with rude questions and rude people with humor is a way to lighten the mood and let them know they're being ridiculous without being rude in return.

 3  With silence.

But when all's been said and done, the best way to deal with this kind of situation is probably to stay silent and walk out of it. When Cara was told that she needs to take a nap because she seemed tired on TV, that was it. Instead of wasting her words, Cara stayed silent and cut herself from the situation because who has time for rudeness? No one.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
