Cara Delevingne Reveals Reason of Quitting Modeling; It Was ‘Killing Her Soul’
Cara Delevingne has reasons to cheer her life now as a full-time actress leaving the modeling career far behind. About half a dozen upcoming movies of Delevingne, including “Paper Towns,” and “Suicide Squad,” are sure to make her presence felt in the industry. But, why has she quit modeling? Read the full article to know the reasons.
In an interview with The New York Times, Delevingne said that her modeling career was full of stress and was often making her physically ill.
She said, “It was killing my soul,” adding that the fashion world has a “lemon effect.” She described modeling as — “I’ll pick you up, squeeze everything I can out of you and throw you away for the next one.”
Modeling has also made her suffer from acute psoriasis owing to the pressure and fatigue of work. The 22-year-old supermodel has forayed into the biz when she was just 10 years old.
Delevingne said that she had something to prove and this made her stick with modeling for years and she never dreamt runway life.
“When I start something, I want to prove people wrong,” Delevingne said. “I thought: I’m going to smash this as hard as I can.”
And she really did it. She has officially cut ties with her modeling firm and is hopeful of her acting career as a long-term trajectory.
Regarding acting, she said that when you are in love with someone, you can stay with him as if no one else is there, and acting is just like that. If you move on with that same feeling then there won’t be any problem when you look at the face of another actor.
With much confidence, Delevingne said, “If I just keep going and actually do it well, which I hope I can, then I hope people will give me more movies — and I’ll win an Oscar!”
