Prince Charming can do one where Cara Delevingne's concerned.
Cara Delevingne has responded angrily to comments made by Cinderella actor Richard Madden where he called her "unprofessional".
It comes after Richard Madden told Style magazine the model-turned-actress "showed her age" in an awkward interview with an American TV show where she appeared bored.
"It was unprofessional. It made her seem ungrateful. She showed her age," he 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."
But Cara Delevingne has taken to Twitter to hit back at the Game of Thrones star…
She tweeted Madden saying: "I have no idea who you are but I think it's 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 continued.
Let's compare shall we....

Richard added that he thought that the actress came across as "ungrateful".

The actor added: "If you're not capable of doing that gracefully, then don't do it."
Cara has defended herself, saying that the American presenters didn't understand her British sense of humour.
"Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour," she tweeted. Zach Braff also defended Cara, saying "how it's condescending to ask an actress if she's read the book".

Following last month's 'awkward' interview with Good Day Sacramento, in which she was told to 'take a nap and drink some red bull', we spoke to Cara Delevingne about her movie Paper Towns.
How did we find her? Unsurprisingly, wide awake and a pleasure to speak to. Check out our interview, below:

Paper Towns author John Green has jumped to Cara Delevingne's defence following her infamous interview with Good Day Sacramento.
In an essay on Medium, the author criticises the news outlet's questions, and praises Delevingne's honest approach to interviews.
Speaking about Cara being asked whether she'd read his novel, Green said: "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."
He goes on to praise Cara's fresh and honest approach to junket interviews.
"In the past two months, I've done something like 300 on-camera interviews. As you get asked the same questions again and again, you develop rote responses as a way of protecting yourself. The rote responses are true - the cast really was like a family; we really are all still friends - but in the repetition, the answers start to feel less and less honest.
"...Cara, however, refuses to stick to the script. She 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 fucking interesting."
We couldn't agree more, John. Read our thoughts on the interview, below...

Cara Delevingne is in the headlines today, being blasted for an 'awkward' interview with US TV show Good Day Sacramento, in which the anchors tell her she sounds irritated and suggest she 'takes a nap and gets some red bull'.
The insinuation is that Cara is being rude. But watching the interview, about Cara's new film Paper Towns, all I see is Cara answering the questions with the addition of a couple of sarcastic comments. And sarcasm is clever. Fact.
(In fact, , wit and creativity. Lowest form of wit? Oh contraire.)
Here's the interview:
Things start off fine (aside from the hosts calling Delevingne 'Carla') as one of the interviewers questions whether the supermodel found time to read the John Green book that inspired the movie. "Uh, no I never read the book, or the script. I kind of winged it," Delevingne replied with a smile, before going on to say that of course she had and that the author's books are amazing and everyone should read them.
The next question was whether Cara's packed schedule made it easier for her to focus. She seems a little baffled by this question, and replies 'No, I don't know where that comes from'. The interviewer obviously finds this rude.
I think she has a point here - in what world does being busy help you focus?
After another answer that Cara starts with a sarcastic comment (hey, it's her thing) but goes on to answer fully, a third presenter jumps in and calls the star out on her attitude, suggesting that she seems less excited than she had in previous interviews. "Are you just exhausted?" He asked her.
Firstly, she probably is a little tired. As the anchors themselves have pointed out, she has a packed schedule and is working non-stop, and it's the morning after the film's premiere. Furthermore, maybe she isn't excited to be talking to this show, with three hosts talking amongst themselves in a different room. We're so used to perfectly media-trained stars that someone actually being themselves and answering questions honestly has become shocking to us. This is a little sad, no?
The news anchor finishes the interview telling Cara: "We'll let you go take a little nap, maybe get a red bull, how about that?" while the other two presenters laugh. Surely this is rude?
Cara may not have been full of faux enthusiasm for the interview, but she answered all the questions, despite the fact she's probably spent the last couple of months answering the same ones on repeat. Her real crime here was letting a little of her personality show through, and thinking that three professional TV hosts could handle it.
I recently interviewed Delevingne for Paper Towns (possibly even with a couple of these questions, sorry Cara) and found her relaxed, engaging and interesting.
Is she the easiest person to interview? No. But if easy is all you want as an interviewer, refuse to speak to anyone but Tom Cruise or the ranks of pros who have a list of acceptable media comebacks tattooed on the inside of their eyelids.
Her personality is what makes Cara interesting, and I'd rather sit opposite a tired and sarcastic Miss Delevingne and risk actually finding something out about her than wait two hours to reel off a scripted film Q&A with any number of big names.
Perhaps sarcasm hasn't caught on in Sacramento. Or maybe it isn't allowed before the watershed. But don't change, Cara D. Some people like a little personality with their morning coffee.
