This New York Times profile of Cara Delevingne is mostly business as usual, with quotes from the actress about studying with a Stanislavsky disciple, disavowing drugs and other topics designed to drum up interest in a wholesome John Green movie. There’s also a dishy lede at the end about Delevingne’s bisexuality:

With “Paper Towns,” her romantic life has become a matter of even more intense public scrutiny. She has openly discussed her bisexuality, defended same-sex marriage and spoken about her relationship with the musician Annie Clark, who goes by the stage name St. Vincent. A recent Vogue cover article led to an online petition protesting the suggestion that her bisexuality might be a phase. Ms. Delevingne, who said she found the protest flattering, though she saw “nothing malicious” in the article itself, said: “My sexuality is not a phase. I am who I am.”

It’s a nice thing to hear, especially in light of Caitlyn Jenner and gay marriage becoming legal throughout the United States. Thanks for setting the record straight, Cara.
