Before Cara Delevingne landed lead roles in movies like Paper Towns, she was known for working the runways in many fashion shows. If you were hoping to see her grace the catwalk one final time, you most likely won't get to see it happen, since she just revealed she has officially said goodbye to her modeling days.
When asked if she has any plans to keep going with her modeling career, Cara said she's "not doing fashion work any more" because it made her "feel a bit hollow."
"It didn't make me grow at all as a human being," she said. "And I kind of forgot how young I was. I felt so old. I was, like, fight and flight for months. Just constantly on edge. It is a mental thing as well because if you hate yourself and your body and the way you look, it just gets worse and worse.”
It seems like Cara was not having a good experience being a part of the fashion industry and it led to her feeling bad about herself and her body. Since she has decided to fully commit to acting though, she is much happier now and has a more positive outlook on herself, which is what matters most.
"I am a lot harder than I was and I feel like all of that modeling, life, rejection, everything, was preparation for this, and now that I am doing this I am the happiest person in the whole world," she said.
We're glad to see she's feeling so much better about things and no longer lets outside forces making her unhappy. You go, girl!
