About two years after Cara Delevingne was seen looking wasted in an airport, the model opened up about how becoming sober has changed her life.

“I used to think drugs and alcohol helped me cope … but they didn't, they kept me sad and super depressed,” the 31-year-old, who went to rehab in 2022, admitted.

Cara Delevingne is a famous model.

“I feel like I've got my power back and I'm not being controlled by other things,” she added, noting the first time she got drunk was in 2001 at her aunt's wedding, "I was eight, what a crazy age to get drunk!"

As for the infamous pictures taken outside the Van Nuys airport in L.A. after she had attended a festival, Delevingne said, “It was a stupid decision to go straight from a festival to work. I should have waited a day. But it was going to happen to me anyway, there were plenty of photos out there of me looking wasted.”

The actress — who is launching her new non-alcoholic Prosecco brand, Della Vite Zero — confessed those shocking photos made her finally go to rehab. The star shared how she would have never been able to land her recent role as Sally Bowles in the West End production of Cabaret if she had not gotten clean.

Delevingne went on to say she is now able to be around people who are drinking and it “doesn't mess her up,” adding how she had “just as much fun” at this year's Glastonbury festival.
