Cara Delevingne Feels Like Things 'Clicked' After Turning 30: 'I'm A Lot More Gentle With Myself'
Even though Cara Delevingne has been in the business for a long time, she's taken some time to self-reflect over the years in which she has learned more about who she really is.
"I think after turning 30, there was a lot that clicked. I think my 20s were brilliant, but there were a lot of different things I wanted to focus on," the actress, 30, told Entertainment Tonight. "I think there was a part of me that still felt, like, I was insecure in my teenage years and questioning and a bit of like self-doubt all the time."
"[But] that is a real thing, about women being in their prime in their 30s? I just don't care anymore," she shared. "I'm a lot more gentle with myself and nice to myself and I think something's changed this year, for sure."
When she was in her 20s, the star "did so much for other people's approval and love." She later asked herself, "Why? That doesn't matter and it's not going to make you love yourself more. It just doesn't."
Now, the Carnival Row lead is "taking the time to heal and focus on myself and what I want to do."
"What I really want to do, not for other people's sake but for my own," she added. "It's just really nice."
These days, the blonde babe is excited for people to view Carnival Row, as it will be the show's last season.
"I started when I was 23, and you have so many memories in that place," she admitted. "[It was] so fun, and so fulfilling. But it just ended in the most perfect way. So yeah, bittersweet is the perfect way to describe it."
In order to end the show, which focuses on how mythological immigrant creatures struggles to coexist with humans, on a high note, she admitted she did something crazy to let loose.
"On the last day, when the whole thing finished, me and one of my cast members went streaking through the road," she divulged. "It was so fun! ... I just was like, 'I have to run naked down that road one time!' It was so funny."
