Cara Delevingne Opens Up About Her Struggle with Depression
Cara Delevingne opened up in a real way on Thursday night. The model and actress took to her Twitter account to set the record straight about her decision to focus on film, and the 23-year-old didn't hold back about her career trajectory or her struggles with depression.
"Can we just set the record straight...I never said I was quitting modeling," she began. "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."
This train of thought was likely in response to her interview last August with London's The Times, where she was quoted saying that she would no longer be doing modeling work. With her recent campaign for Saint Laurent, it looks like she's decided not to completely say goodbye to the fashion world.
"I am focusing on filming and trying to learn how to not pick apart my every flaw. I am really good at that," she continued. Okay.... Rant over. Just wanted to clarify and word vomit a little."
Though she didn't quite stop there. She Tweeted on last comment with a link to her Instagram (below).
Delevingne is currently filming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and is set to appear in Suicide Squad, which hits theaters Aug. 5, 2016.
