Where many have tried, and failed, there are those rare occasions when a model like a Cara Delevinge slips seemingly seamless from modeling to acting. It seems now that Kendall Jenner is going to be making the big move from heading campaigns for the likes of Karl Lagerfeld to attempting her own acting career.
The 22-year-old lady of the Kardashian clan debuted her acting chops six years ago on the remake of Hawaii Five-0. She is also set to appear in the Sandra Bullock-led, female-cast heavy “Ocean’s 8” coming this year. Interestingly enough, that movie, a spin-off of the rebooted “Ocean’s 11” franchise, is set in the moda world. Kendall will fit right in. Whether these cameos, certainly one as high-profile as in “Ocean’s 8,” will jump start Kendall’s movie acting career, no one knows. Her sisters have yet to make any real steps into major motion pictures or T.V. (beyond reality T.V.).
Kendall has supposedly slowed down her modeling recently, and this is when the real acting rumors began. She shut down her official website and deleted her app, sure signs that change could be coming. Being last year’s highest-paid model to a budding actress is a switch of careers of the highest order and sure to send shock waves across the cultural bloggers’ sphere, champions and haters both.
Either way, Kendall is sure to still be ‘trending.’
As the lady herself said in an official statement about her app close down (although she might be intimating about all of her life here): “I’ve had an incredible 2+ years connecting with all of you, but I’ve made the difficult decision to no longer update my app in 2018. I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey as much as I have, and am looking forward to sharing the next chapter with you. Love, Kendall.”
