Model-turned actress Cara Delevingne wants "everyone to accept (her) as an actress"
Cara Delevingne wants everyone to "accept" her as an actress.
The 22-year-old model is starring in five movies this year, including 'Pan' and 'Kids In Love', but has insisted she's going to carry on modelling too.
Cara said: "I have five movies coming out this year, which is really exciting, so you don't really have a choice but to accept me as an actress now!
"I'm going to shove myself down your throat, in the nicest way possible. I'm going to carry on modelling - it's just going to happen a lot less. Actresses do modelling jobs, so it'll be kind of the same thing."
The British beauty will next be seen in 'Paper Towns' as Margo, a girl who goes missing, and Cara has revealed she wanted to play the part as soon as she read it, because she shared so many "similarities" with the character.
Speaking to Britain's OK! magazine, Cara said: "When I first read the script I was in awe of (Margo). She popped out of the page at me and we share a couple of similarities. When I first read the script there were lines that I'd actually said to people before, which scared me immensely.
"'You don't love me, you don't even know me.' I've said that a couple of times. It's that idea of people making their own ideas of you. After that I knew I had to try my hardest to get it."
