Approximately two years after a troubling incident at an airport where Delevingne appeared to be under the influence, the model reflected on her past reliance on drugs and alcohol as coping mechanisms.

“I feel like I've got my power back, and I'm not being controlled by other things,” the model added, revealing the first time she got drunk was in 2001 while she was at her aunt's wedding, "I was eight, what a crazy age to get drunk!"

Fans were worried about the young actress's physical and mental state when pictures emerged of her in 2022 looking worse for wear outside Van Nuys airport in Los Angeles after attending a festival.

“It was a stupid decision to go straight from a festival to work," She told the outlet. "I should have waited a day. But it was going to happen to me anyway, there were plenty of photos out there of me looking wasted.”

Delevingne told The Sun in a chat to promote her new wine: "Nearly two years ago when I got sober, I thought, ‘I probably won’t go out as much, my life’s probably going to change.'"

“And to be honest, I went out way more than before – which is great, apart from when you go out, you drink a hell of a lot of sugar," she continued. “I’d wake up in the morning with a terrible headache, and I was like, ‘What?’"

“I’m sober to be healthy and to be happy. Instead, I feel left with pain.”
