The 31-year-old actress said she was scared that she would be dubbed an ‘it girl’ for the rest of her life after being with Harry, but has now forged her own path.
‘The fear of failing, the fear of rejection, the fear of not getting it right, the fear of not being perfect… I think that has limited me in certain situations in my life,’ she told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday.

Cressida also shared that following her split from her royal beau, she gained greater clarity of what she really wants in life.
‘And I just think it has definitely given me a stronger sense of purpose and a stronger sense of what I want or don’t want,’ she said.
The blonde stunner has been working hard since the split to prove to everyone she is more than just an ‘It girl.’
‘I think that I work very, very hard, I love what I do, and I just hope that this role has shown people what I can do and what I would like to do going forward and not be caught in a box in any way,’ she said, referring to her new Binge show, White House Farm.

Cressida has been receiving rave reviews for her latest role in the Binge biopic series, White House Farm.
The beauty looks almost unrecognisable playing schizophrenic Sheila Caffell, who was the sister of British mass murderer Jeremy Bamber.
The drama tells the horrific story of the White House Farm killings that shook the quiet village of Tolleshunt D’Arcy in Essex in 1985.
