Things got a little cringeworthy on breakfast TV in the US yesterday when British model and actress Cara Delevingne was interviewed about her new movie, Paper Towns.

The 22-year old, who joined the show Good Day Sacramento by video link, was introduced as 'Carla' and things went spectacularly downhill from there.

In fairness to Cara press tours are tough - being asked the same questions day in day out must make for a terminally boring existence so you can't blame her for getting a little sarcastic when asked whether she had read the book by John Green on which the film is based and if she's like her character.

Although she was sarcastic her answers were clearly meant in a good-natured way.

There was also an unfortunate delay in the connection to Cara resulting in awkward silences every time she was asked a question, and although she was still pretty chatty, another host then chipped in to say Cara had been a bit more enthusiastic in other interviews. 

Cara said she'd been celebrating at the film's premiere the night before and said, "It's the morning, don't be mean!".

They then said they'd let the "irritated" actress go and "take a little nap, maybe get a Red Bull" and concluded by saying the supermodel and burgeoning actress would probably be familiar to people from Taylor Swift's Bad Blood video...
