Cara Delevingne is thrilled that it has become "easier and freer " to talk about one's sexuality.
The Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets star -- who has been romantically linked to Michelle Rodriguez and St. Vincent -- covers the August issue of Glamour magazine, and speaks about her own journey with discovering and embracing her sexuality. "A lot of the friends I have who are straight have such an old way of thinking," she tells the publication. "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!’"
It's Delevingne's hope that nobody feels like they have to subscribe to just one label. "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 like,‘She lied to us!’ It’s like, no," she continues. "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 like, [imagine] if I was able to comprehend [that at their age]."

The 24-year-old model-turned-actress also dishes about shaving her head, calling the look "totally liberating."
"But it does feel like people read my mind more," she quips. "I feel like people see my thoughts."
Poppy Delevingne, 31, is also a fan of her younger sister's edgy hairstyle. "I think it was a very brave decision and I think it really paid off,” she told ET. “I think she looks absolutely beautiful with it."
