Telling her story. Cara Delevingne candidly shared how coming to terms with her sexuality was very challenging for her before she came out.
“I grew up in an old-fashioned household. I didn’t know anyone who was gay,” the English model, 28, told Gwyneth Paltrow on her “Goop” podcast on Tuesday, March 16. “I didn’t know that was a thing and actually, I think growing up … I wasn’t knowledgeable of the fact I was homophobic. The idea of being [with] same-sex [partners], I was disgusted by that, in myself. I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I would never. That’s disgusting, ugh.’”
Delevingne continued, “I do correlate the massive depression and the suicidal moments of my life [to that] because I was so ashamed of ever being that. But, actually, that was the part of me that I love so much and accept.”
