Cara Delevingne defeats doubters

Cara Delevingne would love to follow in Angelina Jolie's footsteps and direct one day.

Cara Delevingne loves proving people who make assumptions about her wrong.

The model-turned-actress has taken both the fashion and movie worlds by storm, with campaigns for the likes of Burberry under her belt and six films in the pipeline. Although it's hard to avoid the spotlight, Cara tries to keep certain aspects of herself hidden from the public eye.

"I don't think there's a specific way of handling fame," she explained to Britain's Closer magazine. "I let fans see what I want, which is about 20 per cent of who I am. People make assumptions about me all the time, but I love proving them wrong.

"I'm pretty fearless. I don't think about things, I just do them. I don't try to have charisma. I've always been very dramatic!"

With such a busy work schedule, Cara does yoga every day to relax. She also pens lyrics and plays guitar to unwind and fans have been teased with the prospect of her releasing music for some time now.

Despite her modelling career doing so well, the 23-year-old beauty is keen to expand her acting résumé in 2016. Fans can see her in flicks such as Kids in Love, Absolutely Fabulous and the hotly-anticipated Suicide Squad.

"Modelling wasn't something I was doing for my soul, it wasn't a passion," she explained. "Acting has been something I've wanted to do forever. I'd love to work with Sienna Miller, she's a role model and a good friend. I want to be a strong role model for girls. Angelina Jolie is great, I'd love to direct one day like her. That would be a dream."

It certainly wouldn't be a surprise if Cara went behind the camera, as she's already doing so well in front of it.
