"I never said I was quitting modeling," she tweeted. "I do not blame the fashion industry for anything...I suffer from depression and was a model during a particularly rough patch of self-hatred...I am so lucky for the work I get to do but I used to work to try and escape and just ended up completely exhausting myself."

Cara is still focusing on her acting career and will next be seen in upcoming antihero movie Suicide Squad, which will be released on August 5 in the U.K. and U.S.
