The 21-year-old beauty plans to stop walking on the catwalk for good in order to focus on her acting career.
British supermodel Lily Cole is determined to put her catwalk career behind her for good - because she wants to concentrate full-time on acting.
The beauty recently put her fashion career on hold to study at England's prestigious Cambridge University and has taken roles in a string of films including "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" with the late Heath Ledger. Cole is now adamant her days as a full-time model are at an end, because her future lies in Hollywood.
She says, "I'd like to act and not really model so much. I wouldn't want to treat acting as a convenient thing to do now and again. I've been modelling for years and I feel like I've taken out of it what I need to and I'm ready for new things. I've really enjoyed the process of acting and I'd be more inclined to dedicate my time to that."
