British model-actress Cara Delevingne is embracing a new creative pursuit as she transitions from the world of modeling and acting to filmmaking. After directing the music video for Renee Rapp’s debut single ‘Pretty Girls,’ Delevingne has set her sights on directing feature films, eager to embark on a fresh challenge.
Sources close to Delevingne revealed to ‘The Sun’ newspaper’s Bizarre column, “Cara has had a turbulent year but things are back on track now and she is throwing herself into work.” Known for her versatility and the desire to explore different avenues, Delevingne is motivated to take her artistic journey to the next level as a director.
The source further disclosed, “She is always looking for a new challenge and likes to turn her hand to different things. Now, she is keen to push herself as a director.” It appears that Delevingne is actively seeking advice from industry peers and brainstorming various project ideas to embark on this new chapter in her career.
Earlier this year, Delevingne opened up about facing personal challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic and her subsequent split from Ashley Benson. She revealed to British ‘Vogue,’ “All my sense of belonging, all my validation — my identity, everything — was so wrapped up in work.” This period of introspection led her to spend time in rehab after recognizing the toll that her lifestyle was taking on her well-being.
Reflecting on her experiences, Delevingne shared, “If I continued to go down that road, I would have either ended up dead or, like, doing something really, really stupid.” The turning point came when she saw candid pictures of herself outside an airport after returning from the Burning Man music festival. These images served as a reality check, prompting her to reevaluate her choices.
Despite the challenges, Delevingne’s journey has led her to embrace new creative pursuits and channel her energy into directing. With her penchant for exploring uncharted territories, it’s clear that she is ready to take on the exciting role of a director and contribute her unique vision to the world of feature films.
