Cara Delevingne Doesn't Think a Person's Sexuality Should be 'Pigeonholed'
By Jackie Willis
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]."
