Richard Madden Steps Out of Line With Comments About Cara Delevingne

Seems like the anchors over at Good Day Sacramento weren’t the only people who didn’t understand Cara Delevingne’s British sense of humor.

Former Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden, who played Robb Stark on the famed show, took a jab at Delevingne in an interview with Sunday Times Style magazine.

According to Madden, Delevingne’s behavior towards the anchors of Good Day Sacramento was “unprofessional.” He continued, “It made her seem ungrateful. It showed her age. In Cinderella, I did six weeks of those interviews, where you get asked the same eight questions.”

Bravo, Mr. Madden. You went through several weeks of non-oomph worthy questions with grace (according to your own account, at least). But we’re tempted to ask—would you have criticized Cara if she was a Carl?

Madden didn’t even stop there. He continued to state that Delevingne should go back to modeling if she can’t handle doing interviews. Ouch.

Looks like Madden was targeting more than just Delevingne’s allegedly “poor” attitude in her interview with Good Day Sacramento—it feels as though he was targeting her womanhood. When we read between the lines of what he said about Delevingne in Sunday Times Style, it sounds like he is undermining her skills to handle awkward or unpleasant situations because she’s simply a moody woman from the fashion world. He rids her of a personality and makes her seem as though she’s an empty shell of a person. It’s almost as if he’s trying to say, Why do we expect Delevingne to know better? She’s just a petty little model with half a brain, anyway.

But in true Delevingne fashion, she didn’t let Madden get the last word. She released two short Twitter posts that definitely made Madden sorry for ever even thinking of her name during the Sunday Times Style interview. She said, “I have no idea who you are but I think it’s a little desperate for a grown man to be bad mouthing someone they don’t know… if you really want attention that badly, try focusing on your own work and not other people’s”.

Do you feel the burn, Madden?
