has wanted plastic surgery
since she was a child
, but she says she can't justify going under the knife and then not being "honest about it."
“I always think that if I had work
done, I would talk about it,” the actor said in the latest episode of Josh Smith’s “Make It Reign” podcast
, which was released on Monday.
“I had my teeth done, for example,” she explained, “but there’s something I think is really important for young girls, especially at the moment, to have someone who would go and do something but then talk about it afterwards.”
“For some reason, that’s frowned upon,” Delevingne continued, “and I get it, because it comes from a place of deep insecurity. Ever since I was a kid, I was like, ‘I want a boob job, my boobs are uneven... I don’t like my nose.’”
But something is preventing her from doing so. “If I did it, I don't think I could be honest about it, and that would be a problem,” she says.
“I just think that young girls, or even young boys, need to know that some things aren’t naturally attainable, which is fine
,” Delevingne said. “But, what makes it even more sad is that people
can’t really talk about it.”
If it hadn't been for those inconsistencies and the fact that she acts with her face, the "Carnival Row" alum said she would have had surgery by now.
“I felt it was more important to not do something because I wanted to represent not doing something,” she explained, “but that doesn't mean I don't want to.”
Delevingne has previously spoken out about her struggles with body image
, especially in relation to her successful modeling career and how she was treated.
“I’m not doing fashion
work any longer, after having, like, psoriasis and all that stuff,” Delevingne told London
’s The Times in 2015. “Modeling just made me feel a bit hollow after a while; it didn’t make me grow at all as a human being, and I kind of forgot how young I was... I felt so old.”
She claimed that the stress of modeling worsened her psoriasis and kept her "constantly on edge."
“It is also a mental thing because if you hate yourself, your body, and how you look, it just gets worse and worse,” she explained.
