Cara Delevingne: ‘Getting Others’ Approval Isn’t the Most Important Thing’

Cara Delevingne: ‘Getting Others’ Approval Isn’t the Most Important Thing’

Cara wrote an open letter to Time.com’s Motto:

I started modeling when I was 16. The odds were against me. At 5’8″, I was shorter than most girls in the business. Still, I gave it a shot, and like with most things in my life, I never gave up.

It took a while before I had stability in the business. I worked hard to be accepted by the fashion community in ways beyond my physical appearance. In no time, though, I found myself surrendering to the industry’s approval process. I felt like I needed validation from everyone. As a result, I lost sight of myself and what it meant to be happy, what it meant to be successful. I think it all stemmed from a deep-down feeling of wanting people to like me and love me.

When you do everything you can to make people happy with your work but there are still people who aren’t happy, you start to think, “Well, I’ve worked my a** off. I’ve done everything. I’ve pushed myself into the ground.” You just feel like you’re constantly disappointing others, and there’s this moment when you’re like, “Wait, what am I trying to do? Who am I doing this for?”

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

I was nearly 20 and had been modeling for several years. My vantage point had changed…and I had changed. I knew I had to reevaluate my life and my goals for my future. I didn’t want to resent fashion or my success. The process didn’t happen overnight, but it was imperative for me to preserve my integrity.

It’s taken time, but now I realize that work isn’t everything and success comes in many forms. I’ve opened my mind, and now I embrace new things with a childlike curiosity. I’m spending more time doing the stuff I love. And I’ve been able to do better work because of it.

When you’re coming from a place of living just to work, it’s never as good as you want it to be. It’s never as authentic. When you have balance in your life, work becomes an entirely different experience. There is a passion that moves you to a whole new level of fulfillment and gratitude and that’s when you can do your best…for yourself and for others.

I still have so much to learn, but I have realized that beating myself up, feeling guilty and regretting past mistakes will only hold me back.

After all, no matter how many people like you and your work, it doesn’t matter if you don’t like yourself.

‘Suicide Squad’ Rumor: This Is Probably the Super-Villain All the Villains Were Recruited to Fight

‘Suicide Squad’ Rumor: This Is Probably the Super-Villain All the Villains Were Recruited to Fight

Cara’s Enchantress the big villain? Yes, please!

Suicide Squad is a movie based on the concept of a super-group of villains recruited by a government agent to defeat an even bigger threat, with the idea being that if they join forces, their collective villainy will outweigh the evil of one mega-villain. But who have they been recruited to defeat, exactly? That’s one thing we don’t know, although it is a little easy to suss it out from the footage we saw over the summer.

Using deductive reasoning, it’s fairly easy to figure out that one of these things in the Suicide Squad footage is not like the others. You may have noticed that Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress is the only character who doesn’t appear in the Squad’s full lineup, nor does she share scenes with the other members of the team. Heroic Hollywood also points this out, while adding an unconfirmed rumor about her part in the film: Delevingne becomes Enchantress during the movie and sets out on a mission to locate and resurrect her dead brother with the hope that they can destroy the world together.

In the comics, the character begins as June Moone, an artistic type who discovers an evil entity in a mysterious chamber and absorbs its power, becoming Enchantress. But it’s not long before June realizes that she and the entity are not exactly one — in fact, the evil being is a separate entity and one that is almost impossible to control, similar to Jean Grey’s Phoenix persona.

This new rumor seems very likely to be true, particularly given the way Delevingne’s part plays out in the footage. We see her exploring a dark cavern and taking a bath in mucky water with a pentagram scrawled over her head (typical Tuesday), and there’s one shot of a deranged-looking Delevingne in a grungy riff on the traditional Enchantress costume. None of the footage features the actor alongside the remainder of the Squad, though she did become a member of the team in the comic books, so it’s quite possible that they’ll help her get her powers under control and ask her to join up.

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
