Cara Delevingne parted ways with her agency Storm Model Management and is currently on a publicity blitz for her new movie Paper Towns. But even though she's landed acting roles and she's talked at length about how she just fell into modeling, she still isn't ready to give up the career that shot her to fame and major paychecks.

"I’m not stopping modeling, I’m not retiring. I’m just doing film for the time being," Delevingne told The Hollywood Reporter. "Careers change and you develop and get older. I still have very close relationships with the people I used to work with. Maybe I’ll do fashion sometimes, but at the moment I have no time to do anything."

According to THR, Delevingne said she's done with fashion week presentations and will no longer walk in shows. She also credits Karl Lagerfeld with supporting her career interests beyond modeling. "He's always known that I've wanted to act. He was very nice to put me in his fashion film," she said. "And he knew I wanted to do music so he let me do that as well. He's been nothing but supportive."
