Modelling requires a very specific body type, tall and thin. High cheekbones etc. They don't take kindly to any deviation what so ever. Acting you have a greater leeway because looks vary and you can always improve your acting abilities, you can't improve your height or looks (barring makeup). So I would say acting would be easier though still incredibly difficult, most actors don't break out until their 30-40s if ever. Also a model has a shorter "shelf life" then an actor, you can act until your on your death bed, you can model only for as long as your looks hold out. Are you actually considering one of these as a career or is this purely hypothetical?0

Honestly, I'm not sure. I want to act and while modeling would be cool, I'm too short for it. I fear that I will have a harder time acting because of my skin color. That's my take. :/0
