Cara Delevingne graces the cover of British Vogue and professes love for her girlfriend, singer St. Vincent. She spoke about coming to grips with her sexual orientation and about branching into acting once again, in the movie ‘Suicide Squad.’
The 23-year-old British model has steadily been making the transition from fashion to Hollywood as a member now of the all-star ensemble cast of ‘Suicide Squad’ alongside Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margo Robbie, Viola Davis and others. It was just last year that she made her debut in a major film role in ‘Paper Towns.’
And as she becomes a major star in Hollywood, she joins the select few who have been open about their same-sex relationships. Much like Kristen Stewart confirming her girlfriend is Alicia Cargile, so too, did Cara Delevingne confirm a year ago that she’s dating the indie musician and singer-songwriter St. Vincent. And so did so in the pages of the U.S. edition of ‘Vogue.’
This time around, she tells ‘Vogue UK,’ “I’m completely in love. Before, I didn’t know what love was – real love. I didn’t understand the depth of it. I always used to think it was you against the world. Now I know the meaning of life is love. Whether that’s for yourself or for the world or your partner.”
She also opens up about embracing her sexual identity that the struggle that was, saying, “As a child, I used gay as a bad world, as in, ‘that’s so gay.’ All my friends did. Her parents have been so, so supportive.”
As for labeling herself, she says, “I’m obviously in love, so if people want to say I’m gay, that’s great. But we’re all liquid – we change, we grow.”
She also opened up about finding her place in the world of acting, and said, “I’m still learning. I act for love. I give it my all.”
She went on to say, “I would probably still do it even if I wasn’t paid at all.”
She also took the opportunity to weigh in on one of the hottest topics in the entertainment industry; the gender-pay gap. She said, “But in terms of equal pay I need to be paid the same as the guy who has equal billing with me. Otherwise I won’t do it. Because if you accept less, you’re just letting everyone else down and continuing the cycle.”
She also revealed her concerns says, “My greatest fear is always that I have just been hired because of my number of followers.”
And that’s no small consideration. On Instagram alone she has, as of this writing, more than 31 million followers. That’s quite an audience. But for anyone who saw her performance in ‘Paper Towns’ or now, of late in ‘Suicide Squad,’ it’s clear she’s got more going for her than a social media following. She may well become one of the models who makes that successful segue into acting.
