The model-turned-actress explained in a series of tweets on Thursday evening.

Is she or isn't she quitting modeling?

That's been the ongoing question for those wondering whether or not Cara Delevingne was leaving the runway for the big screen for good. She previously told The Hollywood Reporter that she wasn't quitting modeling, but the question popped up again this week when Delevingne was photographed by Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent.

The Suicide Squad actress, who parted ways with London-based Storm Models last year, took to Twitter to set the record straight on Thursday evening, revealing that she took a break from modeling because she was suffering from depression.

This isn't the first time the 23-year-old has addressed her ongoing battle with the mental disorder, as she bravely spoke at the 2015 Women in the World Summit and revealed that she pushed herself so far that "it got to the point where I had a bit of a mental breakdown."

She then posted the following Instagram post.
