In addition to being one of the biggest pop stars in the world, Rihanna is also full of wisdom. Just ask Cara Delevingne, who turned to the star after hitting a snag in her rise to Hollywood glory, now that the Beach Boys film she was supposed to star in has been scrapped. Fortunately for Cara, she had Rihanna to cheer her up.
Cara told WSJ that she was “heartbroken” to hear the Beach Boys movie would not go through, so for support, she rang good ol’ Riri who told her, “Everything happens for a reason. You are going to call me back in a week or two and say, ‘You are right.’” Of course she’s right, she’s Rihanna. How can someone able to look so fierce in a gown that looks like an omelette not give the best advice ever?
At any rate, Cara is pushing forward with her dreams of Hollywood greatness and has plenty of acting roles lined up. She will appear in the Pan movie this summer, Kids in Love, Suicide Squad and recently nabbed a role in sci-fi flick Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which will be directed by Luc Besson. She also has a starring role in the film adaptation of John Green’s Paper Towns, hitting theaters July 24.
Still, she says sometimes honing her craft is difficult due to her experience as a high fashion model. “With acting, the last thing you do is try to look pretty,” she says. “Modeling actually makes acting harder—it makes you so self-aware.” But in spite of the challenges she faces as she begins to blossom into a proper actress – not one of those “cliché” model/actress types – it’s clear that Cara is making strides and won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
We can’t lie, though, we would have loved to see Cara sing a tune or two in that Beach Boys film.
