Earlier this month, Cara Delevingne revealed that she was suffering from depression while she was modelling, and needed to take a break for a while, and now she’s outlined why she posted the series of tweets.
Talking to E! at CinemaCon, she explained
Things which happen in the mind, things that occur, are less spoken about. Mental illness goes unseen, but hopefully I don’t want it to be unheard. I want to speak up for it.”
I’ve seen a lot of people I love in my life suffer from it, including myself, so I don’t want people to carry on. One of the main things is talking about it, speaking about it for myself and hoping that other people will be able to talk about it too.”
Last month, she made a triumphant return to modelling in a stunning Yves Saint Laurent campaign, but her focus on her film career during the hiatus has paid dividends.
Delevingne will soon be seen as Enchantress in Suicide Squad this summer and next year in Luc Besson’s sci-fi blockbuster Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
Suicide Squad will be released on August 5.
