Cara Delevingne may be one of the most successful supermodels in the business (currently and, well, ever), but she's not totally sold on modeling as a profession. It's not that she's not grateful, I suppose, but rather she's aware that it's an overly glamorized industry-one in which she wouldn't want her future, hypothetical daughter to take part.

In an interview with The Guardian that ran this weekend, the 21-year-old acting, singing, joking multihyphenate didn't sound too jazzed about the profession that put her on the map in the first place.

"I mean, look, I do love it," said Delevingne. "I'm not saying anything bad about it, I just think you can do a lot more. I was incredibly lucky to do as well as I've done, it's not easy, there's so many models who go through so much sh-t, and it's just, if you have a brain, which everyone does, use it and try and do something else."

She went on to say that no, she wouldn't let her future daughter try her hand at modeling: "I'd say no, if that's all she aspired to. You know, I get a lot of girls who say, 'I just want to be a model so badly.' And I think: you can do better than that."

Is it just us, or does the modeling industry not exactly seem like such a fun place to be these days? Last week, Miranda Kerr opened up to Net-A-Porter's weekly magazine The Edit about how she doesn't consider herself a professional model. A week earlier, Karlie Kloss told Into the Gloss that she has yet to 'determine what [her] job actually is but, yeah, modeling is a fun and funny gig."

It's not like these supes are going to stop modeling altogether anytime soon, but this doesn't exactly bode well for the biz.
