Cara Delevingne isn't a particularly private person, but in a recent interview with Vogue, the supermodel-turned-actress opened up even more than she normally does, discussing everything from her tough childhood to her sexuality and love life.
But when the article's author questioned the permanence of her bisexuality, writing, "Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct." an army of Delevingne supporters started an online petition (with more 21,000 signatures) asking Vogue to apologize for such a suggestion.
Delevingne told The New York Times that while she found the outcry flattering, she felt there was "nothing malicious" in the article.
She did want to clarify, though: “My sexuality is not a phase. I am who I am."
Of course, her sexuality isn't the only thing that defines her. As her interest in modeling wanes — she says it was "killing [her] soul" — she's ready to take the acting world by storm. And she won't be playing one of the "stupid girls in like, ‘American Pie 27’" because her "dignity’s more important than that."
Cara Delevingne is a woman who refuses to let others define her personality for her, and that attitude is something we can get behind!
