Cara Delevingne says being in love with her girlfriend St. Vincent has made her happier with who she is than ever.
The 21-year-old model was first linked to the singer, real name Anne Clark, in late February and they’ve since frequently been snapped together.
And in a hew interview with Vogue magazine, which features the stunning Brit on their cover, Cara insists her relationship is the reason she feels so content in her life.
“I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days,” Cara said. “And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
In the interview, Cara confirmed her bisexuality and revealed it took a long time for her to fully accept her sexual identity.
“It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognised that I had to accept it,” she said. “But I have erotic dreams only about men. I had one two nights ago where I went up to a guy in the back of a VW minivan, with a bunch of his friends around him, and pretty much jumped him.”
While Cara has made a name for herself as a world-famous model, she has also found success as an actress with roles in movies such as Anna Karenina.
She will also be seen in upcoming mystery thriller movie Paper Towns.
But Cara admits the prospect of leaving the modelling industry and becoming an actress was a somewhat daunting one.
“I admit I was terrified to leave,” she said. “I mean, the bubble gives you a kind of dysfunctional family. When you’re in it, you get it. And the second you’re out of it, you’re like, What the hell just happened? The thrill of acting is making a character real. Modelling is the opposite of real. It’s being fake in front of the camera.”
