‘It’s Who I Am’ – Cara Delevingne Responds To THAT Controversial Vogue Interview

A petition for an apology gained over 10,000 signatures.


Cara Delevingne has broken her silence on the controversy surrounding her recent Vogue interview.

The model confirmed her relationship with musician Annie Clark in the article by Rob Haskell but the author sparked a fierce backlash when he suggested that Cara’s sexuality was “a phase”.

“Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct,” he said.


A petition demanding an apology attracted over 12,000 signatures but speaking to The New York Times, the 22-year-old said that while she saw “nothing malicious” in the article, the writer was incorrect in his assertions.

“My sexuality is not a phase. I am who I am.”

She also discussed the release of new movie Paper Towns in the interview and added that her relationship with Clark, better known as St Vincent, had helped her acting.

“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.”
