Cara Delevingne is apparently over this whole modeling thing, according to her latest feature in Interview magazine. She describes the "nightmarish" aspects of a job that involves just walking, and how bored she is with seeing her face. Thankfully, we know she can sing, lip-synch, and take wild-west style risks in the name of friendship, so we're not worried for her future. In an almost breathless interview with top model of the moment (really? You couldn't resist the marriage proposal, dude?), she talks all the other jobs she would rather have, the most annoying question she gets asked, and stripping naked in supermarkets (it's not what you think, maybe). Check it out after the jump.

1. On modeling fatigue: "After a few seasons, you get used to [modeling], and there's a lot you actually have to think about, and, I don't know, it just makes you much more aware of what you look like and what other people think. It's a bit of a nightmare."

2. On the boring part of her job: "'What is your fail-safe fashion item?' I don't know, it's just those questions that you've done so many times you're just like, I'm repeating what I'm saying. I can't handle it. It's so boring. I'm so bored of looking at my face."

3. On all the other accomplishments she would like to have: "I'm aiming for an Oscar, a Grammy, and a Nobel Peace Prize. And maybe Prime Minister."

4. On all the other jobs she's down for: "You know, onesies? Like a jumpsuit. I have really good ideas. There's a lot I want to do. Maybe a line of—I don't know—toothbrushes, anything... Who the hell knows? I've got ideas. I used to want to invent things. That's all I'd do, invent stuff."

5. On her actual style: "Comfort is very key to me because I spend most of my time in very uncomfortable things, so it's all about trainers and flats."


"It took me a long time to try to wear clothes; I used to go into the supermarket and take off all my clothes and run away from my mom because I thought it was funny. I was very that kind of child."


"I had no interest in fashion when I was younger. I was such a tomboy. I loved soccer, as you call it, or sports in general. The first time I was a bridesmaid, to my auntie, I refused to go down the aisle without my football shorts underneath my dress."
