Cara Delevingne is making the leap from the runway to the big screen — and her latest accomplishment is landing the July cover of ‘Vogue’ magazine, where she opens up about her relationship with girlfriend, St. Vincent, ‘Paper Towns,’ her childhood and her sexuality.
Cara Delevingne, 22, looks stunning in the July 2015 issue of Vogue magazine, as the major model poses in a series of shots for famed photog Patrick Demarchelier — but seeing Cara smolder in front of a camera is clearly nothing new. What is new, however, is her first solo cover shoot for Vogue magazine, right on the brink of the release of Paper Towns. She might be known for her modeling work, but Cara is ready to take the big screen, (and the box office!), by storm. Inside the mag, she opens up about her love life with girlfriend, St. Vincent, and discusses her sexuality.
“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,” she tells the mag, while also addressing 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,” she explains. “But I have erotic dreams only about men. I had one two nights ago where I went up to a guy in the back of a VW minivan, with a bunch of his friends around him, and pretty much jumped him.”
Cara’s parents think girls are just a phase for the supermodel, while she acknowledges the fact that she’s attracted to both men and women. “Women are what completely inspire me, and they have also been my downfall. I have only been hurt by women, my mother first of all. “The thing is,” she continues, “if I ever found a guy I could fall in love with, I’d want to marry him and have his children. And that scares me to death because I think I’m a whole bunch of crazy, and I always worry that a guy will walk away once he really, truly knows me.”
Cara Delevingne’s Childhood:
Cara grew up in a prominent family in London, but it was her mother’s relapsing heroin addiction that really impacted her childhood. “It shapes the childhood of every kid whose parent has an addiction,” she says. “You grow up too quickly because you’re parenting your parents. My mother’s an amazingly strong person with a huge heart, and I adore her. But it’s not something you get better from, I don’t think. I know there are people who have stopped and are fine now, but not in my circumstance. She’s still struggling.”
Some may wonder why a model at the height of her career would want to dive into the acting world — but that was her plan all along. “The thrill of acting is making a character real. Modeling is the opposite of real. It’s being fake in front of the camera,” she says.
