Cara Delevingne has just done an amazing interview that will make you feel all ‘YEAH, MAJOR FIST PUMP!’
It’s no secret that the 22-year-old model has steered away from catwalks over the past year. And in a new chat with the Wall Street Journal, the British beauty might have hinted as to why.
Cara, it turns out, is sick of the pressure to watch her weight and behave a certain way in the modelling industry. And she’s not going to shy away from talking about it.
‘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,'” she said, talking about the fashion industry.
‘It makes me so angry. If you don’t want to hire me, don’t hire me.’ Amen, honey.
The Chanel strutter has never been your typical model, preferring In-N-Out burgers to Atkins, and that’s exactly why we love her. And her goofy, playful nature is reflected on Instagram via her now world-famous face-pulling selfies.
But, Cara explains, this can be another thing the model world objects to. But does she care? NO! ‘People see a pretty girl, and they expect to see a pretty face,’ she said. ‘I’m not going to do that.’
During her interview with the mag, she reportedly ordered ‘oysters, fried chicken buns, broccoli with sausage, a pork chop and a hanger steak’, which just makes us want to be her dinner date even more. LOL.

Ms D, who is rumoured to be dating singer St Vincent, also explained why acting suits her so much better than being a clothes horse.
‘With acting, the last thing you do is try to look pretty,’ she told WSJ. ‘Modeling actually makes acting harder – it makes you so self-aware.’
She continued: ‘When I was modeling, all I was thinking about was that moment, that day, the next hour. When I started chilling out and learning to say no, I realized that there was a future and I could do more stuff.’
And this newfound healthy attitude is also reflected in her party girl antics – or recent lack of them. ‘I’ve never been so good,’ she said of her cutting down on drinking and exercising more. ‘When I started looking after myself, that’s when I started getting acting roles.’
Cara’s got tonnes coming up on the acting front, including a role in Pan, a new Peter Pan adaptation that sees her playing a mermaid, Paper Towns and the highly anticipated DC supervillain movie Suicide Squad, which marks her biggest role to date.
