Cara Delevingne Almost Gave Up on Acting
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.”
