The supermodel who's fast becoming a superstar, Cara Delevingne didn't always want to be in the fashion industry. Oh, no. In fact she wanted to be Hannah Montana!

Cara, who turned 21 on Monday, told W magazine she asked her parents to hire an acting agent for her when she was just 12-years-old. "I wanted to be a Disney Channel star," she said. "I wanted to be Hannah Montana. They said no!"

With her older sister, Poppy, already a model Cara was adamant she wanted to be something different. At 17, she got wind of Tim Burton's big-screen production of Alice In Wonderland and made an audition tape.

"My interpretation of Alice was a little crazy," she confessed. "I overplayed it - the way a young girl would overplay all her emotions. I sent my tape off, and then I was at a wedding and this woman came over to me. She said, 'You don't know me, but I know exactly who you are'."

Turns out it was the film producer's wife. "She told me that they all loved my tape. And I went to Tim Burton's house and met with him. I didn't get the part, but that experience lit a fire in me."

So, could Cara soon be supplementing her income with a second job, just like these celebs?
