Cara Delevingne is open about her sobriety.
The supermodel, 30, revealed in a cover interview for the September issue of ELLE UK that giving up alcohol has been “worth every second.”
“It hasn’t [been easy], but there have never been moments when I’m like, ‘This isn’t worth it,'” she said of her sobriety. “Every second has been worth it.” I’m just not sure what it would take for me to give up. I am secure. “I’m more at ease.”
After opening up about her struggles earlier this year, Delevingne said she felt like a weight had been lifted.
“I felt like I was hiding a lot from people who looked up to me for a long time.”
The actress opened up about her commitment to sobriety and what led to her checking herself into rebab last autumn in an interview for the April cover of Vogue.
The actress revealed that she enrolled in a 12-step programme after paparazzi photos of her taken at Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles in July 2022 served as a wake-up call and “reality check.”
Delevingne admitted that the photos were “heartbreaking” and that she was in a “bad place,” but she explained that her behaviour was related to the pandemic’s effect and her 30th birthday last August.
Delevingne revealed last month that she had attended her first sober Glastonbury in 15 years.
Delevingne said in an Instagram post following the English music festival that this year’s festival was “by far my favourite.”
“I have been going to Glastonbury since I was 15, but this year was my first sober one and it was by far my favourite,” she wrote alongside a collection of videos from the weekend. “Tears, belly laughs, long-awaited reunions, and so much love.” “Until next time…”
Among the artists she saw at Glastonbury were Lewis Capaldi, Guns N’ Roses, Fatboy Slim, and Elton John, who headlined the festival for the first time.
“Here’s to your happy sobriety,” Fatboy Slim wrote in the comments section. X.” ODAAT.
