Cara Delevingne‘s sexuality featured prominently in a recent in-depth interview with Vogue in which the interviewer suggested that her romantic relationships with women might be a phase. According to Delevingne, that’s not the case.

Cara Delevingne’s Sexuality

Delevingne’s sexuality has been a hot topic of conversation ever since her whirlwind romance with Fast & Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez, and became of interest to the media once again when it started to appear as though the model-turned-actress was dating singer Annie Clark, better known by her stage name St. Vincent.

“Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct,” wrote Rob Haskell in the controversial Vogue piece, which sparked a dialogue about the magazine’s treatment of LGBT subjects as well as a petition that called for an apology.

“My sexuality is not a phase,” Delevingne, who doesn’t think Haskell’s editorializing was “malicious,” clarified to The New York Times. “I am who I am.”

While Delevingne has not directly spoken about Clark in interviews, she isn’t shy about sharing that she is in love – and that being in love has helped her in her career and in life in general.

“Being in love helps, you know?” she told the Times, talking about how it’s affected her acting. “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.”

When Delevingne talked to Haskell, opening up about her past struggles with depression and anxiety, she credited her relationship with Clark as a reason why she was in the midst of some happier times.

“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,” Delevingne said.

Delevingne will soon be seen in her first starring role as Margo Roth Spiegelman in the film adaptation of John Green‘s Paper Towns opposite Nat Wolff. She will also appear in Joe Wright‘s Pan and David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad, in which she plays Enchantress.

Paper Towns hits theaters July 24.
