John Green Defends Cara Delevingne's Attitude During That Awkward Interview

Cara Delevingne's awkward AF interview recently with the anchors of Good Day Sacramento really had people divided. Cara defended her behavior during the interview by explaining her sarcastic British sense of humor probably didn't sync with the interviewers.

Some of the ladies of The View (and many on social media), thought Cara should have conducted herself more professionally and handled the interview better.

Here's a great perspective from John Green, author of the book, Paper Towns. Cara is currently promoting the film adaptation and, as these things go, answering many of the same questions and sitting down with countless interviewers can take its toll.

First, John addresses the question about whether or not Cara has read the book, writing: "I am friends with Cara, and the author of the book in question. I spent more than a month with her on tour in Europe and the U.S., and I watched as again and again, she was asked this question. Cara has read the book (multiple times), but the question is annoying - not least because her male costar, Nat Wolff, was almost always asked when he'd read the book, while Cara was almost always asked if she'd read it."

John touches on how the questions can be very repetitive while promoting a project, explaining that "in the repetition, the answers start to feel less and less honest," even though they're true.

He goes on to talk more about the interview and promotion process and how he's "stuck to the script" of answers to get through it all. In Cara's case, he says, she "refuses to stick to the script."

And this is why we love John so much (and why he is so Team Cara), as he explains that Cara "refuses to indulge lazy questions and refuses to turn herself into an automaton to get through long days of junketry. I don't find that behavior entitled or haughty. I find it admirable. Cara Delevingne doesn't exist to feed your narrative or your news feed - and that's precisely why she's so f**king interesting."

UPDATE: Cara took to Twitter to say "Thank you so much!" to John for his essay. She added:
