“I grew up in an old-fashioned household. I didn’t know anyone who was gay,” Delevingne said. “I didn’t know that was a thing and actually, I think growing up … I wasn’t knowledgeable of the fact I was homophobic.” (RELATED: Cara Delevingne Identifies Herself As ‘Pansexual’ Following Split From Ashley Benson)
“The idea of being [with] same-sex [partners], I was disgusted by that, in myself,” she added. “I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I would never. That’s disgusting, ugh.'”
Delevingne also revealed she had “suicidal moments.”
“I was so unhappy and I wasn’t following my truth, especially in terms of being a model,” Delevingne said. “That whole thing of having to fit into the box — I’m an androgynous person. I love being a woman and dressing up and doing all that, but I also love being a rough and tumble ‘man.'”
“I feel so much more comfortable in the fluidity of what it is to be just a human and to be an animal, almost, because that’s what we are,” Delevingne said, “To trust in your own instincts.”
