However, while the interview carried a positive message overall, it contained the line:
Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct.”
In response, an online petition was set up, calling for the magazine to apologise. The petition received than 20,000 signatures.
Cara as now also weighed in on the comments.
Speaking to the New York Times, Cara– who is currently dating musician St Vincent – said:
My sexuality is not a phase. I am who I am.”
However, she also added that while she was flattered by the show of support online, she was sure the article was “nothing malicious”.
On learning to block out her life’s distractions, she said:
Being in love helps, you know? If you’re in love with someone, you can be with them like no one else is in the room. Acting is like that. It’s like taking that feeling and turning it on so nothing else matters when you’re looking in another actor’s face.”
Delevingne recently called out Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott for opposing same-sex marriage – at the Australian première of Paper Towns.
Tony Abbott, you better listen to the rest of the world and carry on. Go with it.”
