Cara Delevingne, the 23-year-old fashion model and actress who plays Enchantress in the new film, Suicide Squad, recently spoke to Vogue about being bisexual and in love.
On her relationship with girlfriend Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Delevingne explained: “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.”
Her relationship with Clark began in February 2015, and the two have become quite serious recently. Delevingne was previously linked to actress Michelle Rodriguez. The model admitted she used to struggle with identifying her sexuality, even when she fell in love with a woman at 20 years old, but it seems she has now turned a corner and is getting comfortable with who she is.
She explained her evolution on using the word ‘gay.’ “As a child, I used ‘gay’ as a bad world, as in, ‘That’s so gay.’ All my friends did. 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.”
Cara continued: “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,” she said. “And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
