Cara Delevingne has been defended by 'Paper Towns' author John Green after being mocked in an interview on 'Good Day Sacramento'.

The author of the book stood up for the model-turned-actress despite her joking that she had ''never read the book or the script'' of the film.

On Wednesday, (29.07.15) Cara told TV anchors: ''No, I never read the book -- or the script, actually. I kind of winged it.''

John has said that Cara has read the book ''multiple times'' as they cast, including co-star Nat Wolff were ''almost always'' asked if they'd read it.

Writing on his blog John wrote: ''Cara has read the book (multiple times), but the question is annoying -- not least because her male co-star, Nat Wolff, was almost always asked when he'd read the book, while Cara was almost always asked if she'd read it.''

He also praised the 22-year-old actress for refusing ''to indulge in lazy questions'' and being ''f***ing interesting''.

He added: ''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 f--ing interesting.''
