Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne has not been shy about her decision to back away from the fashion industry as she attempts to build a career as an actress. And now, the former supermodel has expanded on why the modeling world just wasn’t for her.

“I didn’t like myself as a model,” she told The RadioTimes. “I didn’t like what I stood for. I didn’t like what it was turning me into. Not that I was focused about how I looked all the time, but it is kind of about that.”

Delevingne rose to fame extremely quickly after being signed by Storm Models, but she now says that this wasn’t necessarily something that she wanted.

“That is not me at all—you speak to my oldest best friends and they know I’m not a model. I do not give a shit about what I look like.”

She went on to explain that acting had always been her outlet for depression and that it is something she has wanted to do her entire life, adding that it makes her “very happy”.

Of course Delevingne has not completely left the fashion world behind and still stars in campaigns for the likes of Chanel and Rimmel, as well as appearing in fashion magazines and on front rows. The actress says that it is far different this time around though.

“Now when I’m a model, I get to style my own shoots and decide who I work with,” she said. “Now it’s become a creative outlet, instead of me being used as a pawn.”
