Agyness Deyn, née Laura Hollins, changed more than just her name when she became a model. The British beauty, who has recently begun dipping her toes into the acting pool
, shaved a few years off of her age around when her career started to skyrocket. Though that isn’t exactly breaking news–most of us had some idea
and there was a facebook group about it called “Agyness Deyn, You’re Not 18″–the age she claimed to be when she came to New York at the real age of 24. However, she’s never come out and said it until now.
In an interview to promote her latest acting gig in a play called “The Leisure Society,” Deyn told the Guardian,
When I decided I would really do modelling I was like 18, and I think at the time that was quite old for a new face, so we knocked off a few years.
She confirms in the interview that she turned 29 last month.
So now we know–Agyness Deyn is nearing 30–and she still looks pretty damn amazing.
