This Awkward Fantastic Four Interview Puts Cara Delevingne’s to Shame
Ever since news broke that hot black actor Michael B. Jordan would be taking over the role of Johnny Storm (a.k.a. Human Torch), which was originated by white actor Chris Evans 10 years ago in the OG Fantastic Four, the racist remarks kept on coming (similar to when Quvenzhane Wallis was cast as Annie in the eponymous reboot last year). But the 28-year-old star, who received critical acclaim for 2013’s Fruitvale Station, responded to the hateful questions and comments like a champ. And that continues through today. Except, this time, his on-screen sister/co-star, Kate Mara, was forced to come along for the ride, and was plagued with sexist commentary as well.
During an interview for Atlanta’s Rock 100.5 Morning Show with Steven J. Rickman to promote the upcoming film, the host asks the pair, “From what I’ve seen, you’re brother and sister. Am I missing something?… But you’re white and you’re black. How does that happen?”
Michael explains, “They could be raised as brother and sister. There’s a whole bunch of family dynamics that could be without the ‘obvious adoption.'”
Steven then directs a question at the 32-year-old redhead, “You’re way, way hot. Why’d you cut the hair? Your hair was beautiful,” to which Kate sarcastically responds, “This is a great interview.” She then continues to express that she chopped her locks for another movie she shot because, “They asked me to. I’m an actress. I have to be a chameleon.” And it actually gets worse….
This footage comes soon after the awkward interview Cara Delevingne suffered through around the release of her flick, Paper Towns, so it’s not exactly the best time to be a celebrity. To see what Michael, Kate and Jamie Bell endured before the release of Fantastic Four, in theaters August 7, watch above!
