Richard Madden says comments he made about Cara Delevingne’s famously uncomfortable Paper Towns interview were taken out of context.

The Game of Thrones actor purportedly told Britain’s Style magazine, in an interview not online, that the awkward Good Day Sacramento sit-down made Delevingne seem “ungrateful.”

“She showed her age,” he reportedly said. “For Cinderella, I did six weeks of those interviews, where you get asked the same eight questions. If you’re not capable of doing that gracefully, then don’t do it.”

Delevingne responded by calling Madden out on Twitter, writing that it was “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,” she added.


Madden responded to the uproar via his Twitter account, writing that the whole thing was just a big misunderstanding.

“Nothing but respect for you,” he tweeted. “Misquoted and blown out of proportion.”
