Model Or Not, We Still Love You Cara Delevingne

Though it seems you haven’t yet decided.

Cara Delevingne is a beatboxer, singer, actress and model — or at least she was a model after she sort of, kind of decided to quit.

Let’s back up. This London-born chick was a model. She walked runways for basically anyone who had a runway, graced the covers of plenty of magazines (one of those covers divulged a little info about her bisexual nature) and wore a hell of a lot of clothes throughout a career that started at age 15. Sometimes (read: the best times) she wore .

But before long, she got a little restless and started designing for DKNY and Mulberry before plunging into a pretty dope acting career. It was that latter endeavor that first started a few pesky rumors about her possibly quitting the industry that birthed her. In response to these rumors, Delevingne told The Hollywood Reporter: “I’m not stopping modeling, I’m not retiring. I’m just doing film for the time being.” In particular, she was working on Paper Towns, Suicide Squad and at least four other projects.

But two weeks have passed since that statement. There was that godawful interview (above) and likely a lot of thinking for the tattooed stunner. And now, it seems she’s changed her mind.

“I am not doing fashion work any more, after having, like, psoriasis and all that stuff,” she told The Times in London (Delevingne has suffered from psoriasis all her life). “Modeling just made me feel a bit hollow after a while. 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.” This from a 23-year-old.

Whatever you decide Cara, just know we’ll always be in your corner.
