Model Cara Delevingne Readies for Acting Career and Aims for An Oscar

Model Cara Delevingne is one of the leading names in the world of fashion. But it seems she is not satisfied with her number one position. The 22-year-old has signed in an enviable list of movies and is gearing up for a high voltage career in films. The blue-eyed beauty who has worked for top fashion labels such as Chanel, Burberry and Dolce &Gabbanais eager to bid the runway goodbye and make her strong foothold in the world of acting.


But that’s not all. She just doesn’t want to do movies so that she’s called an actress, but because she wants to seriously pursue the profession. In fact, she is so confident of her innings in films that she’s sure she will win the Oscars one day for the best leading actress role. “People can put you in whatever box: model, whatever," she explained. "But if I just keep going and actually do it well, which I hope I can, then I hope people will give me more movies — and I'll win an Oscar!”

While speaking to a section of the media recently, Cara said that “Modeling was never a dream of mine, but when I start something, I want to prove people wrong. I thought: I'm going to smash this as hard as I can.”

Cara, who was recently seen in “Paper Towns”, a film adaptation of the young adult novel written by John Green, went on to explain that modeling was in many ways killing her soul. But her attitude to strive to do the best in whatever she started made her go on and on. “It's the lemon effect, I'll pick you up, squeeze everything I can out of you and throw you away for the next one."


For model-turned-actor Cara, “Paper Towns” wasn’t her first film. She had a small role, without any dialogues in the 2012 film “Anna Karenina”. The model who was bitten by the acting bug at the tender age of 4, always knew that acting was her calling but modeling came before and she wouldn’t just leave the ramp. “It felt crazy to turn down roles because I thought I'd do anything to be an actress, but I realized my dignity's more important than that," she confessed to a certain section of the media.

After her appearance in “Anna Karenina”, she was flooded with offers. But she didn’t take up any as she didn’t just want to be the name that could sell a movie. She wanted to prove her potential as an actress. No wonder Cara wants her career graph to be similar to that of Charlize Theron, who had also left a successful modeling career to become one of the leading actresses.

She worked hard for her role in “Paper Towns” where she was playing the character of Margot Roth Spiegelman. The film and the role didn’t come easily to her. She had to audition along with 150-200 actresses but she believes that she was indeed Margo eventually got her the role. While talking to the media, she revealed, “I wanted to be Margo so badly because I’ve said that exact thing to someone telling me they’re in love with me.” “Like, whatever you think I am is a complete projection of who I am. And I actually have no idea who I am! So how do you know?”

Recently the actress revealed her sexual orientation, which became a much-discussed issue in the media. But Cara knows that her sexuality isn’t a phase. She openly discussed being a bisexual with Vogue and was also not afraid to accept her relationship with singer Annie Clark, more recognized as St. Vincent.


Her fans can see a lot of her in the coming days as she has signed for the sci-fi film “Valerian” and DC comics’ thriller “Suicide Squad”. 2016 will surely be the year to watch out for!
