Cara Delevigne wants to ditch her model friends for A-list actresses, according to a report. Gossip Cop, however, can reveal the truth.
Though Delevingne’s most recent movie, Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, fared poorly at the box office, OK! writes in its current issue that the model-actress “still has her sights set on screen stardom.” “And to that end,” claims the tabloid, “she plans to overhaul her friend network to feature fewer models and more A-list actresses.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Cara has a list of young women, like Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie, whose careers she wants to emulate.”
“Now she’s pestering them with calls and emails, asking them out for lunch or coffee. She’s even willing to put aside her rivalry with Kristen Stewart,” claims the outlet’s supposed source. As part of this purported plan, the alleged tipster contends Delevingne is “pushing girls like Selena Gomez and most of her model friends to the backburner.” The publication’s “insider” adds, “Cara’s very ambitious about acting, in a way she never was about modeling. And she’s trying to social climb her way into better roles!”
While it’s true that Delevingne has said she prefers acting to modeling and wants to pursue the former more, these contentions have a logical flaw. Merely being friends with A-List actresses isn’t going to score her “better roles.” Lawrence, Stewart and the other movie stars named are not responsible for casting the films in which they star. And one’s social circle typically isn’t examined when casting directors evaluate potential candidates. So the notion that Delevingne believes certain kinds of friends are the key to “screen stardom” doesn’t make sense.
But there’s also another red flag. This story, which maintains the British star is “pushing” away her “model friends,” was published at the same Delevinge is on a birthday vacation with… her model friends. Many of them have spent the last week documenting their fun festivities on Instagram. You know who isn’t on the trip? Stone, Robbie and the others Delevigne is supporting favoring over her runway pals. Among those actually in attendance, in addition to models like Georgia May Jagger, are English actress Jaime Winstone, French actress Josephine de La Baume, a Burberry executive, the founder of a lifestyle brand and more.
Delevingne clearly isn’t discriminating based on who is and isn’t a successful actress in the U.S. Notably, OK! ran a story with a similar concept nearly a year ago. Last October, the tabloid claimed Taylor Swift wanted to change her persona with help from Delevingne. That wasn’t the least bit true, nor is this piece about Delevingne changing her own persona. Something else that hasn’t changed: The magazine’s problem with accuracy.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
