Agyness Deyn: LA is more me

Agyness Deyn says her life in London was a "whirlwind" five years ago.

The model-turned-actress has noticed a lot of changes since she moved to Los Angeles. The 29-year-old only realised how little she enjoyed her life in London when she set up home across the pond. The star now lives with her husband Giovanni Ribisi, who she wed in June.

"It was a whirlwind," Agyness told Marie Claire magazine. "It was hard to see what was going on when I was in it. LA can be anything you want it to be. For me, it's hanging with friends, beaches and hiking."

The star has made the move from modelling to acting over the last few years. She plays a drug addicted stripper in the movie Pusher and couldn't be more content with her career.

"There was a part of me that I needed to fulfil," Agyness explained. "It wasn't a quick decision, but I'm in no rush to get to a certain point, so I'm taking roles that are creatively stimulating."
