Cara Delevingne never shies away from who she is and that is perhaps the major thing that endears her to millions of fans  across the world.

In a new interview with Glamour Magazine, the 24-year-old model and actress who dated musician Annie Clark (better known as St. Vincent) for almost two years makes it known that although she has dated women, she doesn’t subscribe to being labelled ‘gay’.

‘Once I spoke about my sexual fluidity, people were like, “So you’re gay.” And I’m like, ‘No, I’m not gay,’’ she said.

‘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.’

She and St. Vincent were once an item

Delevingne went on to express her happiness at how people are beginning to be more open about sexuality.

‘I know 13- and 15-year-old girls who are like, ‘I don’t know if I like a boy or a girl yet. I haven’t decided.’ And it’s like—[imagine] if I was able to comprehend [that at their age]. I am very happy how sexuality has become easier and freer to talk about, especially for kids.’
