The modeling world must have let out a collective sigh of relief when Cara Delevingne the young model turned actress officially stated that she was not quitting modeling. Moreover, to quote her on that, she told the Hollywood Reporter, “I’m not stopping modelling, I’m not retiring. I’m just doing film for the time being,” further elaborating how “careers change and you develop and get older. I still have very close relationships with the people I used to work with. Maybe I’ll do fashion sometimes, but at the moment I have no time to do anything.”
The 22-year-old “it” girl gave us all a scare in July when she decided to part ways with Storm Models agency. Her former modeling agency was the one that launched her in stardom, but then when it was announced that she was no longer under their management, rumors spread like wildfire. They weren’t unfounded, ever since staring in Karl Lagerfeld’s movie in 2014, Delevingne got more ambitious with her acting and is currently promoting Paper Towns alongside Nat Wolff. The movie based on John Green’s novel of the same name is marked as Delevingne’s first moviein which she plays the main female role. 2015 is the actresses year as she has not only Paper Towns, but four other films (Pan, Kids in Love, Tulip Fever, and London Fields), all currently in post-production. She is also filming the highly anticipated Suicide Squad alongside big names such as Will Smith and Jared Leto.
In the interview, for the August issue of the Hollywood Reporter, Cara didn’t fail to mention Karl Lagerfeld who had a big part in putting her into the acting spotlight. “He’s always known that I’ve wanted to act. He was very nice to put me in his fashion film,” the soon-to-be birthday girl said, “and he knew I wanted to do music so he let me do that as well. He’s been nothing but supportive.” Paper Towns is in the cinemas as we speak so you can be the judge of her acting, in the meantime, we’ll have our fingers crossed for Cara Delevingne.
