Cara Delevingne is trading in the runway for the red carpet, and her foray into acting is proving to be a successful one. With the release of her first film – Paper Towns – in just over a month (just one of seven films she’s currently got in the works) the woman who put the spotlight back on dramatic eyebrows is gracing the July cover of Vogue.
In her candid interview, Cara talked about her foray into acting (it’s always been the end-goal), and her sexuality. Speaking about leaving the modeling world she said,
I admit I was terrified to leave. I mean, the bubble gives you a kind of dysfunctional family. When you’re in it, you get it. And the second you’re out of it, you’re like, What the hell just happened?
She also spoke about her upbringing in Belgravia – a super posh part of London where only the richest of the rich hang their hats. Her father is a property developer, while her mother was one of Princess Margaret’s closest friends and one of her ladies-in-waiting. Her mother, Pandora, was also a heroine addict, which Cara says forced her to grow up quickly as she was “parenting her parent.” Her mother is still recovering and struggling with her addiction, but is writing a memoir – which Cara admittedly feels uncomfortable about.
Friend and colleague (is that what a fellow super model is?) Karlie Kloss had this to say about Cara:
I remember feeling so jealous when she and Jourdan [Dunn] first met. Cara can create that kind of jealousy because she can make anyone fall in love with her. But it’s misunderstanding her to think she’s just the life of the party. Yes, she’s the life of the party. But she’s extremely serious about her work. And here’s the thing: She is truly herself while being in the public eye—not easy to do.
The British stunner also spoke about some deeper issues (yes, deeper than her mother’s heroine addiction). She addressed her sexuality – saying she’s in love with her girlfriend, Annie Clark (who goes by the stage name St. Vincent), and her bouts of depression, anxiety, and growing up feeling completely out of her element.
