This isn’t Cara‘s first go at acting, she’ll be appearing in Pan and has a lot of movies coming up.

Paper Towns, based on the John Green novel of the same name, focuses on Quentin Jacobsen following clues from Margo Roth Spiegelman after she shows up in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja plotting revenge and then disappears.

    Wow, her and her eyebrows. : (

  • wtf

    you have got to be kidding me

  • WHO CARES!

    So how many blowjobs did she have to give in order to get this role? She needs go back on that street corner where she was discovered.

  • Rose

    Too bad that book was horrible…

  • Anna

    No.

  • caryn

    She can’t act. Why would anyone start out with a lead that can’t act?

  • soph

    Forget about actual trained actors!!! Now all you have to do is become a “model” and then you enter the industry, as easy as that!!

  • wheres hope?

    @soph: Agreed…leaves no hope for the ones that are actually passionate and totally consumed in acting. Forget about those people!

  • Jennifer

    @soph: Same thing with actors becoming singers, singers becoming actors, and both becoming designers. There are people who train to become an actor, who train to sing and train to dance and train to design…they all go to school, but in the industry you can just move about throughout professions without any training. That’s like going to school to become a doctor and then being all “well, I’m really good at solving crimes…maybe I’ll go for the FBI too since I know someone over there”. The entertainment industry is a joke. They shouldn’t even have schools to train for this if that’s how it operates.

    This is a joke? I love her as a singer and model but actress? WHYYYY
    THIS IS SHIT

  • YunaGirl

    Worst casting ever. Her addition ruined an otherwise promising work.

    @Jennifer: Nepotism at it’s best, right? I mean why would I pay £16,600 for a couse at RADA when this pretty face just shows up and gets a part? It’s a “who knows who” game.

  • Taylor

    This is despicable.

  • Jennifer

    @soph: Exactly. It’s not ‘what you know’ but ‘who you know’ and how your image benefits the other person. It’s frustrating. I’ll be honest, I don’t dislike Cara and she might be good for the role .. I have never read the book, and I’m okay with admitting that because I feel like this situation applies with many non-actors who get acting roles…like Rita Ora in 50 Shades of Grey, Taylor Swift in The Giver…etc. There are people like Janel Parrish, Anna Kendrick and Lea Michele who have grown up in theater and training in both vocals and acting so when they want to record an album and star ina movie that’s one thing…but when you’re a model and just decide “oh acting seems like fun”…that’s not cool when you get a leading role like this. People tell rising actors all the time how hard it is to get callbacks, how your resume needs to be before a casting director will even see you, but some hot model comes in and auditions and gets the role when many actors who might be better than her can’t even get an audition because their resume isn’t up to par. The situation sucks all the way around. ON TOP OF THAT, they have reality shows like The Glee Project where some kid wins a contest and then he has a starring role on the show when I know those producers could walk into any theater group in high schools or colleges around the United States alone and find a kid studying actor who could act circles around the kids who won (and runner ups!) and got to be on Glee. How messed up.
