CRITICS LEARN TO SPELL CARA DELEVINGNE
HOLLYWOOD – Critics have spent the whole weekend learning to spell the name of top British supermodel and star of the John Green adaptation Paper Towns Cara Delevingne.
The famous eyebrow model turned actress Cara Delevingne has wowed critics with her stand out performance in the new John Green film Paper Towns, leading a bunch of critics who had been copying and pasting her name to actually sit down and look at it and try to remember how to spell it for themselves.
Justin Chang of Variety spoke to the Studio Exec on condition of complete anonymity:
It was quite difficult at first, and to tell you the truth what would be the point in learning to spell it if Paper Towns proved to be a stinker. But she’s great so I guess that another name in the old memory banks. It only took a couple of hours.
Pete Bradshaw of the UK’s The Guardian found the problem slippery:
The problem is you see, that it is the surname that is difficult. So you concentrate on it and you study it and you spell it out in different colored crayons so that it fixes in what I call my ‘memory palace’. But then I opened the paper this morning to read my review and I found I had written ‘Clara Delevinge’ CLARA!? I felt like a complete pillock!
A.O. Scott of the New York Times said that he had seen it all before:
It was the Gyllenhaals all over again! We have this huge rush to find out how to spell the name and the next thing you know we all know how to spell the name. It really isn’t that hard. After all we are journalists.
Claire Develingser’s Paper Towns is on release.
