The 20-year-old model-and-reality star was spotted out and about with movers and shakers from the film world at the Cannes Film Festival last week in part of her bid to follow in the footsteps of her friend Cara Delevingne and make a transition to acting.
A source told Britain’s Grazia magazine: “Kendall has wanted to follow in Cara’s footsteps for some time and her ‘momager’ Kris Jenner was keen to ensure she made the most of her trip to Cannes.”
And the trip is said to have been successful for the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star – who is taking classes from Hollywood acting teacher Howard Fine – as she met with director Jim Jarmusch and casting director Kerry Barden, and also secured a reading for upcoming movie ‘Wonderstruck’ alongside Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams.
However, Kendall – who made her acting debut four years ago in popular cop show ‘Hawaii Five-O’ – won’t be turning her back on modelling if she does find big screen success.
The source added to Britain’s Grazia magazine: “Kendall doesn’t want to give up modeling but she’s desperate to branch out and try something new.
“She’s hoping that she can be as successful as Cara and show the world that she’s not just a pretty face. She is desperate to prove to everyone that she is a genuine talent.”
Kendall recently admitted she feels “forgotten” by her famous sisters because she is always working.
After returning home to Los Angeles after a shoot, she told her siblings: “It really annoys me when you come to the city and don’t hang out with me. You forget about me… I don’t want to be forgotten about because I have to work a lot.”
