(Should she retire? Click the photo to see Gemma's hottest looks)

Right around this time each year, rumors begin to run rampant about key fashion week faces, so we're going to take this latest bit of news about a certain IMG catwalker with a grain of salt:

Apparently, former Prada campaign girl, Gemma Ward, will soon be officially retiring from modeling -- opting instead to pursue a career in Hollywood as an actress. Earlier this year, Gemma stared in two films: The Strangers, where she played an evil killer who hides behind a mask and The Black Balloon, a feel good film where Gemma plays the girlfriend of boy trying to cope with his brother's mental disability.

One time in an interview, Gemma said she only began modeling because people told her it would help her acting career. So the jump to become a full-time actress isn't that big of stretch. Plus, with acting, no one will probably care as much when the already thin 6'0 beauty decides to eat hamburger or some other food no one should be freaking out about.
