For those who missed it, back in 2018, the 27-year-old came out pansexual, and now, she’s getting real about what that really means.
“The thing is with me, I change a lot. I feel different all the time. Some days, I feel more womanly. Some days, I feel more like a man,” she explained in a new interview with Vogue. “I always will remain, I think, pansexual. However one defines themselves, whether it’s ‘they’ or ‘he’ or ‘she,’ I fall in love with the person — and that’s that. I’m attracted to the person.”
According to the blonde beauty, she never felt like she “needed to come out” publicly.
“It was just kind of like, ‘This is who I am. Just so you know,'” she continued.
The Paper Towns actress explained that when she was growing up, it was hard for her to come to come to terms with her sexuality.
“I grew up in an old-fashioned, repressed English family,” Cara said. “And I used the word ‘gay’ to describe things which were s**t all the time: ‘That’s so f**king gay of you, man.’ Everyone used to talk about ‘Oh, my God, imagine [hooking up with] a woman.’ I’d be like, ‘That’s disgusting.’ I think that came from the fact that I just didn’t want to admit who I was. I didn’t want to upset my family. I was deeply unhappy and depressed. When you don’t accept a part of yourself or love yourself, it’s like you’re not there, almost.”
Previously, the star explained to Vogue, “It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it. But I have… dreams only [in which I’m attracted to men]. The thing is, if I ever found a guy I could fall in love with, I’d want to marry him and have his children. And that scares me to death because I think I’m a whole bunch of crazy, and I always worry that a guy will walk away once he really, truly knows me.”
