Cara Delevingne Almost Gave Up on Acting

Cara Delevingne Almost Gave Up on Acting

Cara Delevingne shows off her beautiful smile on the cover of WSJ magazine’s June issue, out on newsstands on May 30!

Here’s what the 22-year-old actress and model had to share with the mag:

On the downside of the modeling industry: “It’s horrible living in a world where I’ll get a call from someone saying, So-and-so says you were partying a lot and you were looking this way and you need to lose weight. It makes me so angry. If you don’t want to hire me, don’t hire me.”

On putting her dream of becoming an actress on the back-burner to pursue modeling: “I basically gave up on acting, because trying to get an agent was impossible. Everyone said, ‘You’re just a model,’ … once I had my mind set that I was going to do this modeling thing, I really wanted to beat it, if that makes sense. Win it.”

On modeling: “I ended up feeling a bit empty. Fashion is about what’s on the outside, and that’s it. There’s no searching, it’s just creating pretty things.”

    Empty? Damn, girl, you clearly have no idea how empty, shallow and hopeless movie industry is.

  • girl93

    Maybe because you are not a good actress?

  • Michele V

    She got some pretty good notices for The Face of an Angel. Don’t really care for her as a model, but I’m interested in seeing her acting. It’s worked well for Agyness Deyn who was also overexposed as a model at one point.

  • Spokane

    Maybe because they realize that she is nothing but a skanky, lays on her back to get what she wants, rich b***h, daddy pays people off to get his daughter what she wants, user of people and then cries like a little scared b***h when people bend to her liking (yes that was a Cannes shade TRICK), don’t forget to leave the tip on the table, $2.00 but it is $1.99 too much WHORE!

    What did she ever see in that ugly big nose ugly manly Dominican Mitchell Rodriguez.

  • girl93

    There are better actresses out there. I was so angry when she was casted in Paper Town, what a terrible choice.

  • mandyz

    Mitchell LOL

    Face of nepotism.

  • mouth

    I wish she would and eye shadow too.


    There are tons of ways to lose weight. Just depends on your approach as almost everying may or ay not have some sort of way to lose weight. Dieting and excercising is a couple of the many ways. Just put effoer though.

  • Brian

    we were sooo close… sigh… she should give up on acting.. she is a terrible actress

  • Brutally honest

    She should have given up. She has the same depth of expression of a dead raccoon.
