As a respected descendant of earls and baronets, the 24-year-old actress explains to the magazine why she decided to go under the moniker Gabriella Wilde and get rid of her birth name Gabriella Zanna Vanessa Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe.
“No one could say it right. It’s a mouthful, and it felt appropriate to leave it behind. I wanted to distance myself from modeling and some of the gossip press that existed around me and my family. It was easier for me to establish myself under a different identity, and I want to be doing it on my own”, Gabriella points out to V.
