Cara Delevingne shocked fans when she dropped out of the fashion world in the summer of 2015. Last Wednesday, the bold-browed beauty went into detail as to why she ditched modeling and turned to acting.

In a blog post on Motto, Delevingne’s reason was simple: modeling didn’t make her truly happy. "I was nearly 20 and had been modeling for several years," she said. "My vantage point had changed… and I had changed. I knew I had to reevaluate my life and my goals for my future.”

Even when things are bleak, your eyebrows are always on fleek.

For Delevingne, she claims that career, in general, is “not the most important” part of life. "Yes, your career is very important—but it's not the most important. Of course I was proud of my accomplishments, but I wasn't genuinely happy,” she said.

The 23-year-old also expressed that she "didn't want to resent fashion or my success." She added, "the process didn't happen overnight, but it was imperative for me to preserve my integrity.”

"Over time, I came to realize that work and getting others' approval isn't the most important thing."

At 16, Delevingne was the face of your mom’s favorite designer handbags: Chanel and Burberry. Last year, she was named Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.

In 2015, she launched her acting career with Paper Towns and at the same time, may have ended the careers of these troll interviewers. Delevingne will star as the Enchantress in the highly-anticipated Suicide Squad.
