Actress and model Cara Delevingne spoke about her growing years with Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop’s podcast. Delevingne, who identified as pansexual last year, shed light on her struggles to accept herself, among other things.
She revealed that growing up, she felt ashamed of her sexuality and, not being exposed to gay culture, was also homophobic.
“I didn’t know anyone who was gay. I didn’t know that that was a thing and actually I think growing up … I wasn’t aware of the fact that I was homophobic. The idea of the same sex [partners], I was disgusted by that, in myself. I was like, ‘OMG I would never do it, that’s disgusting, ugh,’ he said according to a report in The independent.
“There’s still a part of me where I’m like, ‘Oh, I wish I could be straight.’ There is still that side. It is really complicated. But really, that was the part of me that [now] love a lot and accept ”, he added.
According to Oxford Learner’s Dictionaries, pansexuality is “the state of being sexually attracted to people regardless of their sex or gender identity.”
“The thing is with me, I change a lot. I feel different all the time. Some days I feel more feminine. Some days I feel more like a man. “I will always be, I think, pansexual. Regardless of how you define yourself, be it ‘they’, ‘he’ or ‘she’, I fall in love with the person, and that’s it. I am attracted to the person ”, the actor had told him. Variety.
Previously, she was in a relationship with pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson with whom he broke up after almost two years of dating.
Speaking about her years as a model, she said: “I was so unhappy and I wasn’t following my truth, especially in terms of modeling. All that stuff about having to fit in the box: I’m an androgynous person. I love being a woman and dressing up and doing all of that, but I also love being a tough, tough ‘man’. I feel much more comfortable in the fluidity of what it is to be just a human and to be an animal, almost, because that’s who we are. Trust your own instincts. “
