Now the 22-year-old is looking to add “actress” to her resume with her recent role in the coming of age movie Paper Towns!
But the real question is, how did she do?? So we decided to round up some reviews to see what some of the top Hollywood critics have to say about Cara’s performance:
Manohla Dargis of the New York Times:
“She’s nice on the eyes, no doubt, but she doesn’t have the tools to take this underwritten screen role and make it hurt, and you spend a lot of time watching her Groucho brows hold steady over her sunburst smiles.”
Brian Truitt of USA TODAY:
“Green wrote the book Paper Towns as sort of a takedown of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl stock character, but Delevingne imbues her enigmatic role with a lot of soul. Not only does the audience understand why everybody falls for Margo, even though she’s frustratingly flighty, but Delevingne has such an unmistakable magnetism, you miss the supermodel newcomer when she’s not around for half the movie.”
Rebecca Keegan of the LA Times:
“I can’t blame Delevingne, a model who is transitioning to film acting, for Margo’s troubles as a character ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ she delivers fortune cookie lines like, “You have to get lost before you find yourself,” with conviction, and her raspy voice and power eyebrows communicate just the right amount of danger for Orlando.”
Joe Neumaier of the NY Daily News:
“Delevingne, a model-turned-actress, is raw but still enigmatic enough to keep us curious when Margo is gone for the second half of the movie.”
Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of the AV Club:
“Delevingne possesses an almost preternaturally interesting face, but is at best a beginner actor. Thick furrowed brow and cocked head notwithstanding, she’s too feathery a presence to make her an object of sustained mystery”
Peter Travers of Rolling Stone:
“Supermodel Delevingne wears down any resentment of yet another Brit playing an American teen. Her flashing eyes and throaty voice indicate the star power to make it in pictures that move.”
Hmmm. It sounds like the critics are pretty split! Not too surprising considering the film currently holds a 58% on Rotten Tomatoes!!
