Cara Delevingne actress and model has had high-profile relationships with women.

However, in a recent interview with Glamour Magazine she was quick to dismiss being the labelled “gay” – explaining her reasoning in this interview this week.

She explained:

I am very happy how sexuality has become easier and freer to talk about, especially for kids. Once I spoke about my sexual fluidity, [some] people were like, ‘So you’re gay’, and I’m like, ‘No, I’m not gay’. A lot of the friends I have who are straight have such an old way of thinking.”

It’s ‘so you’re just gay, right?’ [They] don’t understand it. [If] I’m like, ‘Oh, I really like this guy’, [they’re like], ‘But you’re gay’. I’m like, ‘No, you’re so annoying!’. Someone is in a relationship with a girl one minute, or a boy is in a relationship with a boy, I don’t want them to be pigeonholed. Imagine if I got married to a man. Would people be like, ‘she lied to us!’? It’s like, no. I’m not gay. I am… I’m not. I’m fluid! I like fluid.”

In previous interview, Delevingne explained how it took her a long time accept her sexuality.

It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it. 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. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
