Watch Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel Royally Screw Up Cara Delevingne’s Name
Though the British model is everywhere these days — Paris Fashion Week, somewhere making out with Michelle Rodriguez — but no one seems to really know how to say her name properly. Hell, even an Oscar winner can’t even get the damn thing right.
The proof is in the pudding in several videos taken at this year’s Met Gala and uploaded by Delevingne herself, in which the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Zooey Deschanel are seen struggling to say her name during a slightly buzzed elevator ride. (The clips have since been removed from She-With-The-Difficult-Sounding-Name’s Instagram, but you can still watch them above and below.)
“I love you Kara. Cara. I don’t know what your f**kin’ name is,” Witherspoon says, adding that she’ll be “f**ked” if she has have to pronounce her last name. “The most important thing in a name for a girl, is that a man can whisper it in his pillow.”
Just don’t try to get John Travolta to pronounce “Delevingne” though.
