Cara Delevingne Opens Up About Her Sexuality & Being Pigeonholed By Societal Standards

Cara Delevingne is perfect in Prada on the cover of Glamour magazine’s August 2017 issue, on newsstands July 11.

Here’s what the 24-year-old Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets star had to share with the mag:

On her sexuality: “A lot of the friends I have who are straight have such an old way of thinking. It’s ‘So you’re just gay, right?’ [They] don’t understand it. [If] I’m like, ‘Oh, I really like this guy,’ [they're like], ‘But you’re gay.’ I’m like, ‘No, you’re so annoying!’…. Someone is in a relationship with a girl one minute, or a boy is in a relationship with a boy, I don’t want them to be pigeonholed. Imagine if I got married to a man. Would people be likeā€”‘She lied to us!’ It’s like, no.”

On how sexuality is easier to talk about now: “I know 13- and 15-year-old girls who are like, ‘I don’t know if I like a boy or a girl yet. I haven’t decided.’ And it’s likeā€”[imagine] if I was able to comprehend [that at their age]. I am very happy how sexuality has become easier and freer to talk about, especially for kids.”

On shaving her head: “Totally liberating. But it does feel like people read my mind more. I feel like people see my thoughts.”

On acting vs. modeling: “I always say, modeling is something I do, whereas acting feels more like what I [am]. I have felt better than I felt in years, and that’s purely from doing what I love. Especially because, while I’ve been doing this film [the upcoming Life in a Year], I’ve been sober. Being completely clean and clearheaded has been so helpful with getting into character.”
