Agyness Deyn - Agyness Deyn has 'officially' retired from modelling

Agyness Deyn has retired from modelling.

The British beauty confirmed she has ''officially'' stopped modelling in favour of pursuing her love of acting because she has grown disenchanted with the fashion industry over time.

Agyness said: ''I suppose I have stopped modelling officially. I've not done any for a good long while now. I think it was about four years ago when my feeling were changing towards the industry.

''I didn't hate it, but I was yearning to do something different. I was on a gradient. I was something different.''

The 'Pusher' actress is now settled in New York with her husband Giovanni Ribisi, but doesn't begrudge spending ten years of her life travelling the world for her sake of her modelling career, especially since it gave her the creative bug which led her to try acting.

She explained to The New Review: ''Oh god, I loved it. Being 18 years old, from Manchester, and suddenly having this new world to explore - being able to travel, meet all these different people, and immerse myself in all these different cultures - was just so much fun.

''I got spotted [by a modelling agency] and I've had this great chunk of time - 10 years - to find out what I really wanted to do, which is to act.''
