Cara Delevingne on why she wants to quit modelling


Cara Delevingne has spoken out about her future in modelling, and it doesn't sound promising. 

The model/actress said that the modelling industry has now resulted in her hating her body after first beginning when she was just ten years old.

Although she seems to be at the top of her model game, Cara has spoken out and said she is "not doing fashion work any more".

She opened up about her struggles as a catwalk model for some of the biggest brands in the world saying it made her 'hate' her body. 

In an interview with The Times, Cara said ""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."

She continued saying "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."

Cara also explained how the stress of the catwalk model life also led her to developing psoriasis which is a skin disease that can be quite uncomfortable for sufferers.

She said: "People would put on gloves and not want to touch me because they thought it was, like, leprosy or something."

It seems the 23-year-old is now going to focus all of her energy on her new acting career. She holds one of the lead roles in Paper Towns and she is also starring in next year's hugely anticipated movie Suicide Squad.
