Lily Cole may retire from modelling.

The flame-haired British beauty admits her heart lies in acting, and her days left in the modelling world may be numbered.

She said: "I love acting and if the right opportunity did come along I would definitely consider quitting altogether.

"It is certainly something I want to prioritise in the future. It's not a finite decision though - I may not get the opportunity. If a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity came along I'd even consider leaving Cambridge University to do a film. I'd definitely weigh up my options and talk to my tutors about flexibility."

However the 22-year-old model admits her time in the industry has helped her develop as an actress.

She told "It's hard to distinguish whether it has helped but I don't know any other way. It's definitely helped confidence wise. I find acting much more of a challenge - acting is definitely harder."

Recently Lily confessed she was not into following trends and prefers to wear timeless pieces.

She told BANG Showbiz: "To be honest, I'm not a huge follower of trends. I just go with what I feel and what I like, I have a lot of things in my wardrobe that like I consider quite timeless and that I'll wear again and again through the years."
