Cara Delevingne: Modelling spooks me

Cara Delevingne thinks actors who are nervous are not prepared.

Cara Delevingne finds modelling much more terrifying than acting.

The 22-year-old star has made the successful transition from fashion to movies with roles in big flicks such as Paper Towns, Pan and Suicide Squad. Although her modelling skills have been praised and enabled her to strut for the likes of Chanel and Stella McCartney, Cara doesn’t see it as a breeze.

“Before I go on a catwalk I’m literally sh*tting a brick. It’s the most terrifying thing in the world, I don’t know why I put myself through it so much,” she mused to “Acting you’re just getting into the role… Once you’re in it, you’re just in it. To be in character you have to be prepared. If you’re not, that’s why you’re nervous.”

Cara’s latest cinema outing is in John Green’s Paper Towns, in which she plays mysterious disappearing teen Margo whose friend Quentin (Nat Wolff) goes on a road trip in search of her.

The actress has often spoken about how she can relate to her alter ego and shared their similarities this time around when explaining that they’re both fearless.

However there are some differences between them.

“Margo is very, very confident and is very wise for her age. I think when I was 18 I thought I knew everything, but I was so wrong,” she sighed.

With six movies in the pipeline Cara’s acting career is buzzing, and she has big plans of who she’d like to portray in the future.

“I would love to play some more historical roles, or maybe some roles in the future like the first Formula 1 woman driver, or a female politician like Gloria Steinem would be cool,” she added.
