Cara Delevingne is everywhere lately, from your fave new John Green adaptation to Taylor Swift's music video for "Bad Blood." But there is one place that you might not see Cara for a while, and that's in the pages of a magazine - at least, as a model. According to Cara's new interview with The Times, she's not doing fashion work anymore, and the reason is both understandable and pretty sad.
Most Cara fans were first introduced to her during her modeling days, but now Cara is taking a step back from fashion in order to follow her acting dreams. In addition to playing Margo in Paper Towns, Cara will star in the highly-anticipated Suicide Squad - definitely not bad roles for an acting rookie. But why did Cara make the switch from full-time model to full-time actress? Here's what she said:
Cara also told The Times that it was that stress that led to a painful skin condition known as psoriasis, which made her insecure about modeling:
Modelling just made me feel a bit hollow after a while. It didn't make me grow at all as a human being. And I kind of forgot how young I was ... I felt so old.
Modeling may sound like a pretty cushy career, but as Cara talks about here, it's still hard work and definitely isn't all fun - especially when you don't feel comfortable in your own skin. It sounds like Cara has found her calling in acting, and pursuing that is making her a lot happier than modeling was. As sad as it is that Cara doesn't feel comfortable doing the thing that sparked her career, she clearly knows herself well enough to move on when things don't feel right - and that will make her happier in the long run.
I am not doing fashion work any more, after having, like, psoriasis and all that stuff... People would put on gloves and not want to touch me because they thought it was, like, leprosy or something.
