She’s been the face of several different fashion campaigns, but Cara Delevingne is officially leaving the modeling world behind for her true passion–acting.
After revealing her goal had always been to be an actress, the star of the upcoming John Green flick Paper Towns has officially quit her modeling agency Storm, which signed her at 15 and helped her to become the mega modeling star she did.
Delevingne is Vogue’s current cover girl, and she’s hitting the big screen soon in her first films, “Pan” and “Paper Towns.” The British-born model is also filming David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad,” which is set to hit theaters in summer 2016.
“The thrill of acting is making a character real,” Delevingne told Vogue for its current issue — prior to her official departure from Storm.
“Modeling is the opposite of real. It’s being fake in front of the camera,” she said. “I admit I was terrified to leave. I mean, the [fashion] bubble gives you a kind of dysfunctional family … The second you’re out of it, you’re like, What the hell just happened?””
“I ended up feeling a bit empty. Fashion is about what’s on the outside, and that’s it. There’s no searching, it’s just creating pretty things,” she told the publication about putting her modeling career on hold to focus on acting.
