Cara Delevingne: I'm not a role model

Cara Delevingne doesn't want to be a role model to her fans.

The supermodel accepts her behaviour and statements will have an effect on the people who follow her career but she doesn't accept she is a role model and she doesn't want the responsibility of being someone they should look up to.

Cara - who has 2.51 million followers on Twitter - said: "I hope that I can influence young people and teach them that it is important and necessary to preserve your individuality. Look, you can admire people and be guided by them, but you should never imitate them."

The catwalk queen has now embarked on an acting career and can currently be seen in Michael Winterbottom's psychological thriller 'The Face of An Angel' and has roles in DC Comics blockbuster 'Suicide Squad' and 'London Fields'.

The 22-year-old star admits the biggest difference she's noticed from being a model to being an actress is that she's now aware that cameras are shooting her.

In an interview in Germany's Vogue magazine, she said: "I always wanted to be an actress from an early age. Drama and music, that was always my plan A; the modelling was rather random (for me).

"As a model, I was never particularly aware of the camera. If you are an actor you have to put the camera out of your mind. That was difficult for me in the beginning but slowly I got cool with it."
