Cara Delevingne Reveals Depression Battle, Did Not Quit Modeling

Elle Style Awards 2014 - Arrivals

Cara Delevingne did not quit modeling…she’s just on hiatus after revealing her battle with depression. The model turned actress confessed to her depression in a series of revealing tweets. “Can we just set the record straight…I never said I was quitting modeling. I do not blame the fashion industry for anything. I suffer from depression and was a model during a particularly rough patch of self hatred. “

“I am so lucky for the work I get to do but I used to work to try and escape and just ended up completely exhausting myself. I am focusing on filming and trying to learn how to not pick apart my every flaw. I am really good at that Okay…. Rant over. Just wanted to clarify and word vomit a little.”

It takes a lot to admit to the world something like depression.
