Last week, model and actress Cara Delevingne appeared on “Good Morning Sacramento” to plug her new film, Paper Towns.

The interview didn’t go well. The anchors asked lazy and condescending questions, including this gem about the movie’s source material:

Host #1: “Did you have a chance to read [the book]?”

Delevingne (sarcastically): “No, I never read the book or the script, actually, I kind of winged it.”

The interview only got worse from there:

Host #2: “Do you find that it’s easier for you to focus because you’re so busy, if you had downtime maybe it wouldn’t be so easy for you? What do you think?”

Delevingne: “No. I don’t know where that comes from.”

Host #1: “What do you like about Margo [Delevingne’s character]? Do you have anything in common with her?”

Delevingne: “No, I actually hate her.”
