‘Suffer from depression’: Cara talks about her ‘self-hatred’ on Twitter


Last night, Cara Delevingne revealed that she suffers from depression in a heartfelt Twitter essay.

The 23-year-old shocked her fans when she appeared in a Saint Laurent campaign after everyone thought she quit the modelling business.

However, she reached out to her confused fans by opening up in very personal tweets. 

"Can we just set the record straight," she began. "I never said I was quitting modelling. I do not blame the fashion industry for anything."

"I suffer from depression and was a model during a particularly rough patch of self hatred."

"I am so lucky for the work I get to do but I used to work to try and escape and just ended up completely exhausting myself," she explained.

"I am focusing on filming and trying to learn how to not pick apart my every flaw,' she concluded. 'I am really good at that. Okay…. Rant over. Just wanted to clarify and word vomit a little…"

She ended off her tweets with, "I never quit."
