Cara Delevingne felt isolated growing up as a “queer child”.

In a joint interview for The Sunday Times with her sisters Poppy and Chloe, the model explained that she looked up to her sisters as the “epitome of the woman I wanted to be” and struggled when she was different.

I soon realised that I couldn’t be the same – all of us have different paths – but they showed me the most fundamental things that I had to learn in life… I’m still on that journey and will continue to be for the rest of my life.”

The Paper Towns actress identifies as pansexual, meaning she can feel attracted to anyone, regardless of their sex or gender identity. She has previously been in relationships with musician St. Vincent and actress Ashley Benson.
