Star opens up on her bat­tle with de­pres­sion

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

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.”
