Cara has pursued a number of different passions throughout her career, and recently hit back at one Twitter user who told her to "get a real job". The model tweeted that she was about to "do something incredibly exciting and I am very nervous", which was met with a rude reply. "Hopefully an interview for a real job," they wrote. "Your looks will fade, Cara. You can't cash in on your eyebrows forever."

The outspoken model was quick to reply, saying: "You will regret saying that. I am actually trying to do something good. This has nothing to do with my 'looks'." It transpired that Cara was on her way to Uganda to do work with Sudanese Refugees on behalf of the United Nation Foundation's Girl up programme.
