Delevingne has discussed modeling's negative effects on her health before — at one point, she suffered from the stress-induced autoimmune disease psoriasis, which causes patches of red, itchy scabs. These tweets clarify comments over the past year about distancing herself from the modeling industry in favor of her acting career.
She has five films out in 2016 after Paper Towns and Pan last year — including Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie and Suicide Squad this summer — and is currently filming Luc Besson's sci-fi Fifth Element redux, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, with Rihanna and Dane DeHaan.
