"I've been pretty open about myself from the beginning," the bisexual supermodel-actress told Daily Mail Australia Sunday night. "And I think everyone has a right to be whoever they want to be. So I'm just very happy." So true. It's tough to be happy if you can't be yourself. Way to live your truth!
As for Ireland and the U.S. Supreme court legalizing gay marriage recently, Cara said, "I think it's wonderful that you know, it's being accepted more and more." And it wouldn't be Cara if she didn't also have a sassy, but poignant message for Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, who has yet to legalize it (she was in Australia after all). "Tony Abbott, you better listen to the rest of the world and carry on. Go with it." Snap.
Cara not only got candid about her sexuality and LGBT issues at the premiere, she also gushed about her girlfriend, 32-year-old St. Vincent singer Annie Clark, in a recent interview with Vogue, telling the mag, "I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I'm feeling so happy with who I am these days. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle."
We have no doubt Cara has become an inspiration for other young women who are struggling with depression or with being true to who they are, simply because she decided to share her story. We certainly applaud her courage and openness. Cheers girl!
