Cara Delevingne Opens Up About Her Transition To The Acting World With GQ Magazine

Ahead of her blockbuster sci-fi film “Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Plants”, model Cara Delevingne reveals to British GQ acting has always been a dream of hers.

“As a really small child I always wanted to be an actress,” she said. “And I wanted to be a musician. But going to school with all these incredibly talent people I was like, ‘I have no chance.’ I still did it, because I loved it, but I didn’t ever think I’d do this. That’s what I’m so happy that I modelled. I wouldn’t have made it into acting or music if I hadn’t modelled first.”

Delevingne seems like a seasoned actress, with credits in “Suicide Squad” and her leading role in “Paper Towns”, the 24-year-old still finds some challenges, “I find it hard to cry in front of even one person. If I cry, I want to cry alone,” she revealed. “For me, to cry meant I had to, in my head, beat myself up and make myself feel really s**t, but what I learnt that day was I actually had to be strong to be vulnerable.”

On camera isn’t the only place Delevingne finds herself facing challenges, “I am a very outwardly free person, even though sometimes I don’t feel that way inside.”

“Inside, I have so many fears. I work in an industry where I care what other people think and I’m nervous all the time,” she continued. “If I don’t admit that it’s going on, it comes out in my skin… You pretend it doesn’t exist, that’s when it comes out, whether it’s heartbreak or something at work.”

Delevingne’s sci-fi thriller “Valerian” hits theatres July 21.
