In a new interview with “Vogue” for the April 2023 issue, Cara Delevingne has decided to open up as she has rarely done before, also talking about her addictions and the almost rediscovered balance following a far from peaceful period in her life. his life. Subsequently, at age 10, she was prescribed sleeping pills for insomnia and, at 15, she says she had a nervous breakdown before sinking lower and lower over the following years, mostly following the pandemic and the loss of her family. her beloved grandmother.

What happened during last year’s Burning Man, on the other hand, although present in the memory of the model in a rather “fragmented” way, is largely attributed by her to the use of drugs that made her feel “invincible” and oblivious to the danger, because “in those moments I don’t care about my life”, he reveals. “I was climbing up on everything and jumping off things…it felt wild. It’s a scary thing for the people around you who love you.” The photos published immediately after the event, which largely made her many fans worry, however – in which Cara herself appeared in an alarming state – were for her a «source of overwhelming shame and embarrassment and an urgent bell of alarm to get away from substances and alcohol» that had seduced her for a long time. In fact, it was from there that Cara, colliding face to face with the reality of things also thanks to these photos, realized that she didn’t “look good” and she had the push to go back to taking care of herself.

To date, the model has been sober for about four months thanks also to rehab and the friends who have been close to her, among which she mentions Selena Gomez, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Margot Robbie. “My old friends who I’ve known since I was 13 came up to me together and we started crying. They looked at me and said, ‘You deserve a chance to experience joy.'”
