For "Game of Thrones" viewers, the Red Wedding was the single most traumatic event in television history, but little did Robb Stark know, the bad blood was far from over.
Richard Madden, the blue-eyed Scottish actor better known as the ill-fated Stark brother, slammed model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne for her awkward interview with "Good Day Sacramento" from back in July during a recent interview with Style magazine. The actor called her called her "unprofessional" and said her seemingly flippant responses "made her seem ungrateful."
Ouch. Of course, the outspoken 23-year-old starlet wasn't going to let the HBO star's comments go without a response. Delevingne took to Twitter on Tuesday to put Madden on blast for his comments, calling the whole thing "a little desperate."
If we're not mistaken, we're pretty sure Delevingne Red Wedding'd this entire situation. But tbh, we hate to see two of our favorites fighting.
In her wildly publicized morning show interview, Delevingne was asked if she had read John Green's "Paper Towns," the book that inspired the movie she was starring in. She responded sarcastically, leading to a very awkward exchange between the young actress and the anchors in which they told her to go take a nap. Yikes. Not cool, right?
Sure, asking an actor if they'd read the book that inspired their project is a lazy question -- but it's one Madden is also very familiar with. The actor has probably been asked hundreds of times if he's read George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice & Fire" series, which serves as the source material for HBO's "Game of Thrones," and he's always managed to answer the incessant question with a smile on his face.
But Delevingne, as John Green so brilliantly described, doesn't play the media game by anyone else's rules but her own.
"She refuses to indulge lazy questions and refuses to turn herself into an automaton to get through long days of junketry," he wrote in a blog post. "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."
For his part, Madden quickly apologized to Taylor Swift's bestie, claiming his comments were taken out of context and blaming a "#SlowNewsWeek" for the writeup.
Madden's comments might have been taken out of context, but can we all agree that every actor has the right to play the media game however they damn well please?
