Cara Delevingne started her career as a model and has walked the ramp for leading labels such as Burberry, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. She later ventured into acting, and most recently appeared in the movie, Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets.
However, speaking with Radio Times, the 24-year-old said that she is 'not a model' and revealed that 'she does not "give a s**t about what I look like".
Talking about her successful modeling career, she admitted, "I didn't like myself as a model. I didn't like what I stood for. I didn't like what it was turning me into. Not that I was focused about how I looked all the time, but it is kind of about that."
Delevingne, who won Model of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards in 2012 and 2014, has revealed that she is not naturally a clothes horse.
"That is not me at all – you speak to all my oldest best friends and they know I'm not a model. I do not give a s**t about what I look like," she was quoted as saying.
The Suicide Squad actress will return to modeling in the future, but on her own terms. The actress said, "I'm not out of it. I will definitely still do it. (But) Now when I model, I get to style my own shoots and decide who I work with. It's become a creative outlet, instead of me being used as a pawn."
"To be honest, acting is something I've wanted to do my entire life," the British model told the outlet.
"It really teaches me so much about myself and about life, and that's what I've always wanted to do. It makes me very happy."
Delevingne stars as Laureline in the science fiction action film, which takes places in 28th century. The official synopsis for the movie reads as follows:
A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
Other than the 24-year-old, the film also stars Dane DeHaan as Valerian, with Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Herbie Hancock, Kris Wu and Rutger Hauer in supporting roles. The film hit the theaters on 21 July 2017 in the United States.
