Cara Delevingne talks body insecurities: "I'd like to be curvier"


It is hard to imagine that anyone who spends their life being photographed or parading down a catwalk can be insecure about their body.

However Cara Delevingne admitted she would be happier with a few more curves when she posed for her third i-D magazine cover, which has relaunched a new video-driven site.

The 21-year-old looks stunning in the shots which sees her sport a blonde Afro wig and elaborate make-up and clothes, channeling a Pierrot-style clown.

When asked what she was most insecure about, the model replied: 'My body because I’d like to be curvier.'

As she moves into acting, the star revealed the lengths she would go to in regards changing her appearance for an acting role.

'I’d shave all my hair off and my eyebrows, I’d gain weight, I would do anything, sky dive, jump off buildings, do my own stunts, I want to learn all there is to learn', she commented.

The glamorous pictures see the Victoria's Secret Angel sport sparkly tweed-style pants, over-sized blouse and a short, spotted fur stole, styled by Sarah Richardson.

Cara, who never appears to be out of the headlines, opened up about how she feels about the media attention she receives while being photographed by Richard Bush.

She said: 'I tried to punch one [a member of the paparazzi] in the face the other day. I’m worried that I’m going to get into trouble one day.

'The pictures never tell the whole story, they don’t show the provocation from some of the paparazzi, and how some of them just want to provoke you in order to get their story.'

The bushy-browned star, who revealed that she normally sleeps naked, said her dream date would be US rapper, Eminem.

Speaking about the fun-loving character she portrays, she commented: 'Everyone, including me, has off days. But I try my best to keep happy the way everyone around me does, and to keep up moral.

'Of course, I’m only human. I try and be real and keep my life real. I don’t expect anyone to think I’m always perfect because I’m not. No one is.'

The Brit, who says her dream roles would be either Cat Woman or Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, has been linked with Michael Winterbottom’s Amanda Knox inspired film, Face of an Angel.

'I’m always scared of the future, but Michael is an incredible director and I’m working with an incredible cast. With acting, you’re essentially learning on the job,' she said.

The young star said it was her fans that make her work harder, adding: 'I want them all to realise that their dreams are possible.'
