Actress and model Cara Delevingne has been speaking up about her sexual fluidity since as early as 2014, making it clear that she is simply attracted to people, not men or women specifically. But in a new interview, the star revealed why she wasn’t always comfortable with that fact.
Chatting with RuPaul Charles and Michelle Visage on their podcast What’s the Tee, Delevingne said that growing up, she watched Disney movies constantly and found herself wanting to identify with the princesses in the films. “I learnt so many lessons from that — from Disney and that kind of fairytale thing," she said.
But the star also revealed that her love of Disney came at a personal cost — as she began to realize her sexual fluidity, she looked to the Disney princesses as role models. “I never really wanted to accept my sexuality," she said. “I was like, 'Disney princesses all love men. That's the way it is, and I'm not going to be a princess if I don't...’ you know what I mean?”
