Cara Delev­ingne: Are The Cracks Be­gin­ning To Show?

As Cara Delev­ingne rounds off a gru­elling pro­mo­tional tour for Sui­cide Squad, the cracks are be­gin­ning to show…

Look (UK) - - CON­TENTS -

Saun­ter­ing through the streets of New York last week, Cara Delev­ingne seemed the pic­ture of con­fi­dence – and why not? The model-turnedac­tress stars in Sui­cide Squad, one of the big­gest Hol­ly­wood re­leases of the year; she’s ru­moured to be en­gaged to girl­friend of 18 months An­nie Clark, AKA St Vin­cent, re­cently ad­mit­ting: ‘I’m com­pletely in love’; and she turns 24 this week. But look a lit­tle closer and Cara’s skin seems to be telling a dif­fer­ent story: her pso­ri­a­sis, which she’s ad­mit­ted suf­fer­ing from when she’s anx­ious or stressed, has flared up.

So, when it’s sup­posed to be the most ex­cit­ing time in her ca­reer, why is Cara feel­ing trou­bled? ‘She puts her­self un­der so much pres­sure and it al­ways comes out of her in a phys­i­cal way – even if she’s strong men­tally,’ a friend tells Look. ‘Her work schedule has meant [she and An­nie] have been spend­ing far less time to­gether than they would nor­mally.’

In an in­ter­view, Cara ad­mit­ted: ‘If I don’t cry pretty much ev­ery day I’ll hold it in and it will man­i­fest in me in things that are de­struc­tive, like my skin.’

Cara has ap­par­ently been re­ally strug­gling to be away from her girl­friend – and it can’t have helped that Sui­cide Squad was panned in early re­views. ‘I con­stantly doubt my­self,’ she said re­cently, be­fore tweet­ing: ‘I am try­ing to learn how to not pick apart my ev­ery flaw. I am re­ally good at that.’

‘There’s been very lit­tle let-up for Cara lately,’ says the friend. ‘All this work has re­ally thrown her off – she misses An­nie and she’s lost weight thanks to not main­tain­ing a nor­mal schedule when she’s rush­ing around. It’s no won­der her pso­ri­a­sis has flared up again.’

Cara’s skin flare-ups were par­tic­u­larly bad at the height of her mod­el­ling ca­reer. ‘Peo­ple would put on gloves and not want to touch me be­cause they thought it was, like, lep­rosy or some­thing,’ she’s said. ‘It wasn’t a good time – I was, like, fight and flight for months. Just con­stantly on edge.’

But while Cara’s strug­gling, one glim­mer of ex­cite­ment is the ad­di­tion of a huge rock on her ring fin­ger. While Cara’s agent de­clined to com­ment when Look asked about it, it’s thought that she and An­nie are en­gaged. But even if that’s the case, there’s no time for the pair to cel­e­brate as Cara’s schedule won’t let up any­time soon: as soon as the tour for Sui­cide Squad is over, she’s go­ing straight on to pro­mote Kids In Love, out 26 Au­gust. Let’s hope she and An­nie man­age to get some time to­gether soon. In the mean­time: we be­lieve in you, Cara – chin up!
