Star opens up on her battle with depression
Cara Delevingne has spoken of her struggle with depression, saying she felt there was “just something dark within me”.
The model turned Hollywood actress acknowledged that she had the world at her feet.
She told Net-APorter’s weekly digital magazine The EDIT that talking about mental health had been difficult with friends, who would say “but you’re so lucky”.
“I’d be like, ‘I know, trust me, I know. I know I’m the luckiest girl in the world, I understand all of these things, and I wish I could appreciate it.
“There is just something dark within me I cannot seem to shake.”
The 25-year-old said that she “hated” looking like a boy growing up and felt that she “didn’t want to be alive anymore” when she had a breakdown at 15.
She added: “I turned my anger on to myself. Instead of using (my) sword and shield (to protect myself), I just put my shield up and stabbed myself.”
