Well, it’s a sorry day for all of us, because model Agnyess Deyn is officially giving up the world of posing for pictures. The 29-year-old, who also formerly lied about her age and is now married to Scientologist Giovanni Ribisi, told English paper The Independent that the glory days are over:
I suppose I have stopped modelling officially. I’ve not done any for a good long while now. I think it was about four years ago when my feelings were changing towards the industry. I didn’t hate it, but I was yearning to do something different. I was on a gradient. It was a gradual thing…Oh god, I loved it. Being 18 years old, from Manchester, and suddenly having this new world to explore – being able to travel, meet all these different people, and immerse myself in all these different cultures – was just so much fun.
It’s a tragedy, really. We will miss Deyn and her short blond hair, her spunky personality, even her loft in Brooklyn. But fortunately, we won’t have to lose her altogether! Because she’s turning to acting. Not only that, but she doesn’t expect any special treatment just because she’s already famous and a model:
I want to work hard, and I don’t expect to be given anything because I’ve had success in a different field. I’m doing this just like everybody else. I just want to keep on working and creating.
