Cara Delevingne has revealed that she took part in the 12-Step program, admitting that “sometimes it takes a reality check” and recalling her recent decision to quit drinking.
The 30-year-old model and actress rose to fame as the face of British luxury fashion house Burberry in 2011.
Delevingne told UK Vogue: Core, deeper.
“This time, I found the 12-step treatment to be the best. I was not ashamed of it.”
Delevingne has acknowledged a series of images taken of her at Los Angeles’ Van Nuys airport last year and talked about how those images prompted her to consider sobriety.
“It’s heartbreaking because I thought I was having fun, but at some point I felt like okay, I didn’t look good,” she said.
After celebrating her 30th birthday last summer, Delevingne said the milestone prompted her to reassess how she was living her life.
“My way of life wasn’t sustainable, so I always knew things had to change when I hit my 30s,” she said.
Having found fame as a model, Delevingne landed a minor role in the 2012 adaptation of Anna Karenina directed by Joe Wright.
She later secured lead roles in Paper Town and Suicide Squad.
Looking back on her career, Delevingne said:
“There is nothing to improve it.”
Delevingne also spoke candidly about her mother’s struggle with addiction and how she has dealt with it so far.
“I just needed to be mad at someone and I was mad at her, but it wasn’t her fault…
“It was brutal that addiction took my mother away from me, and it was brutal to her.”
