Cara Delevingne is dropping bombshells in the July issue of Vogue magazine, opening up about her battle with depression and sucidal thoughts which began back in her teenage years. "All of a sudden I was hit with a massive wave of depression and anxiety and self-hatred, where the feelings were so painful that I would slam my head against a tree to try to knock myself out," she recalls of her 15-year-old self. "I never cut, but I'd scratch myself to the point of bleeding."

The Paper Towns star reveals she was put on medication, but still struggled to get out of bed in the mornings. "The worst thing was that I knew I was a lucky girl, and the fact that you would rather be dead...you just feel so guilty for those feelings, and it's this vicious circle," she explains. The 22-year-old recalls a time she contemplated suicide while alone in an NYC apartment, saying: "I was like, I need to decide whether I love myself as much as I love the idea of death."

Luckily, Cara is much happier these days thanks to her romance with St. Vincent singer Annie Clark.

We're so glad Cara's found love and happiness, and that she decided to be open about her depression. She's certainly not alone!
