Cara Delevingne On The Rumours About Her Model Career

Cara Delevingne has been plagued with rumours that her modelling days are behind her after only walking in one show (Chanel, obv) over 2015’s Fashion Week.

And now, the 22-year-old has addressed the speculation once and for all in a new interview with ITV’s Lorraine, in which she admits she never really picked modelling in the first place, and says her future is definitely in acting.

‘Modelling I love but acting is my passion’, she told journalist Ross King. ‘I think modelling kind of chose me, it’s never what I expected, I always wanted to be an actress and I think I use acting so much in modelling.’

She continued: ‘You ask anyone I do a shoot with, I’m always running around doing accents, dancing, singing, it’s never just a normal shoot!’ 

Looks like we shouldn’t expect too many more struts from Ms D in the future then, if she can help it.

The Burberry beauty also spoke about the stigma attached to a model-turned-actress label to Time Out. ‘The first time I did Fashion Week, I was like: Right, I might as well give up acting because I’m screwed.’

But there is a bright side to her model fame. Cara recently surpassed the 10 million Instagram followers mark, and admits that Instagram is the one thing she could never quit.

‘People [talk about] the way I look or they think that I’m doing something that I’m not’. she said. ‘People hear rumours and they comment on them. And I have no control over it.

‘Sometimes I get sad and I think: God I can’t ever turn back from this. I can’t switch it off. There is no return And it freaks me out. But at the same time, I wouldn’t be living any other life. And to be honest, I don’t care what they think. I’m happy.’

We’re happy too, Cara. Long live the silly selfies!
