Cara Delevingne has said that her sisters Chloe, 37, and Poppy, 35, ‘did their best to be there’ for her as she admitted ‘growing up as a queer child was isolating and hard to navigate at times’.

The model, 29, who identifies as pansexual, said she saw her sisters as the ‘epitome of the woman I wanted to be’. 

Cara, who has dated stars including St Vincent and Ashley Benson, also said it was something she ‘had to go through’ herself and is a journey she will be on ‘for the rest of my life’.

‘I saw my sisters as the epitome of the woman I wanted to be. 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,’ Cara told The Sunday Times

‘Growing up as a queer child was isolating and hard to navigate at times. My sisters did their best to be there for me but it was something I had to go through myself to truly know who I was. 

‘I’m still on that journey and will continue to be for the rest of my life.’

Last year, Cara admitted she became suicidal as she struggled to come to terms with her sexuality. 

She said she grew up feeling ‘disgusted’ by the idea of having a same-sex partner and ‘still wishes’ she could be straight. 

Cara also said she correlates the ‘massive depression‘ she suffered with her struggles to accept her sexuality, which she described as ‘constantly changing’.

Speaking to Gwyneth Paltrow on her Goop podcast, Cara confessed her conservative upbringing contributed to her being ‘quite homophobic’ in her youth. 

She said: ‘I grew up in an old fashioned household. I didn’t know anyone who was gay.

‘I didn’t know that was a thing and actually I think growing up I was quite not noticeably, I wasn’t knowledgeable of the fact I was homophobic.

‘The idea of being same sex [partners], I was disgusted by that, in myself. I was like, ”Oh my God, I would never, that’s disgusting, ugh”.

Cara added: ‘I do correlate the massive depression and the suicidal moments of my life [to that] because I was so ashamed of ever being that. But actually that was the part of me that I love so much and accept.’

The model currently identifies as pansexual, which means a person is not limited in their sexual choice by biological sex, gender or gender identity.

In recent years Cara has dated stars including actresses Ashley Banson and Michelle Rodriguez and singer St Vincent.
