Cara Delevingne Doesn't Want to Play 'Stupid Blonde' or 'Sexy Girlfriend' Roles


British model Cara Delevingne has been switching over to acting recently, but she has revealed that she felt like giving up on her dream because every script she was sent immediately seemed to typecast her as either 'stupid blonde' or 'sexy girlfriend' and she didn't want those type of roles. "The first time I did Fashion Week, I was like, 'Right, I might as well give up on acting because I'm screwed'. And as soon as I became a model, I was being sent typecasting roles as the stupid blonde who gets killed really quickly, or the sexy girlfriend, or whatever. Roles I would rather die than play. I was ready to give up on it. Or not give up, but take a break." 

 Cara says that when a film that actually interested her wanted to audition her for the part, she became very emotional: "When I finally got a serious role to audition for, I cried on the phone, I was so happy. Not even a film, just an audition." The model-turned-actress says she is now fighting to have her voice heard on set: "Every movie I've done I've had to fight for lines and fight for point of view. Usually it's a male director, male producers. It's all very much a man's point of view. I speak up and say, 'Girls don't do that'. Or, 'That's not something a girl would say in that situation'. It's about how men perceive women and it's not accurate, and it annoys me!"

Edie Campbell Finds "Victoria’s Secret Models a Bit Weird"


British model Edie Campbell has confessed that she doesn't understand why there is a need for Victoria's Secret models. She believes the lingerie company are making women into something to be "offered up to men" and although she knows the reality isn't easy, she would rather look at it from her own idealistic point of view: “I always find Victoria’s Secret models a bit weird. It’s just a load of girls going, 'Look how good my cleavage looks’. It’s purely women offered up to men. Regardless of the reality, I would rather be idealistic and believe women are better than that.” 

 Edie also believes women who make money from taking their clothes off in general aren't doing the world any favours. She explained that it's just making men think it's okay for women to be seen as sex objects: “You get girls that have made a s––– tonne of money out of taking their clothes off – and largely by being a sex object. Victoria’s Secret is like coal mining; Kelly Brook is like a coal mine. It’s not good for the general environment, but, until you find an alternative source of energy, then good for you.”

Jourdan Dunn Forced to Wear Wigs to Stop Hair Loss


British model Jourdan Dunn has revealed that she has been forced to wear wigs after losing and damaging so much of her hair. The model says that she was told to give her hair a break to help it regain its health so she has been wearing wigs to help fix the problem: ''My hairstylist Renda Attia is really important. My hair has been so damaged with heat and styling because most hairdressers still don't know what to do with Afro hair. So last year Renda said to me, 'You need to give your hair a break and start wearing wigs.' I mean, I had no hair around my hairline - it was like baby hair, it was so damaged. So I've been wearing wigs and having them changed every month, having lots of conditioning treatments and, finally, my hair is growing back.'' 

 Jourdan says she doesn't actually work out regularly but did train when the annual Victoria's Secret show was approaching last year because she wanted to make sure her body was in shape for the big show: "Here's the thing - I don't really do anything. But for the last Victoria's Secret show I did Barrecorre, because, trust me, those Angels work hard for their bodies. Barrecore is really hard core - you do squats on your tippy toes until your legs shake and burn. But it really works, so after the fashion weeks are finished I'm going to get back into it again. It's an intense mix of ballet, Pilates, yoga and cardio."

Cara Delevingne Talks Fame & Choosing to Act


British model Cara Delevingne is now instantly recognisable, and she says there are some negatives to having that kind of fame. Cara says she used to love going out walking but rarely gets the chance to now that everyone knows who she is. The model says "it really upsets" her that she can no longer do this simple thing: "I like to walk around a lot. It really upsets me when I can't walk because I love walking so when I can't, because of too many people or whatever, it really upsets me. When I was just a New Yorker I'd go and walk through Times Square and just walk around, it's really funny." 

Cara believes that her modelling career just happened and it wasn't something she "expected". However, acting is something she has always wanted to do: "Modelling I love but acting is my passion. I think modelling kind of chose me, it's never what I expected, I always wanted to be an actress and I think I use acting so much in modelling. You ask anyone I do a shoot with, I'm always running around doing accents, dancing, singing, it's never just a normal shoot!"
