She has dominated the international catwalks in recent weeks and earned comparisons with Kate Moss, but that's not enough for model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne.

While she loves being in the fashion industry, Delevingne says she wants to act - and sing.

"I would love to be doing what Meryl Streep is doing right now, her career is incredible," she told vogue.co.uk. "Her or Judi Dench, or Charlize Theron is another one, because she started off as a model. She's the most beautiful woman, Amazonian-goddess-looking and then she did this movie Monster where she played a real thug. She plays really ugly and I love that. That's what I want to be - a crazy cave woman or like a possessed demon child; I want to be that ugly."

While she sees her future in Hollywood, Delevingne said she doesn't want people to think she is bored of catwalk shows. She thoroughly enjoys working with the top fashion houses, even though she has a suspicion they sometimes find her methods difficult to deal with.

"I love modelling. If it was my own choice - I mean I would never say no to it - but I really want to be acting and I really wanna do music. But those come in to modelling so much for me. That's how I model - I very much act and I very much run around singing and dancing all the time," she said.

"If you speak to anyone I do shoots with, the music's up full volume and I'm singing, dancing, even if they find it annoying. That's what I do. So I kind of bring that into my daily life anyway. I'm never going to forget music and acting. If I am able to carry on modelling I'll be very happy too, but that's definitely my passion - music and acting."
