Cara Delevingne opens up on Ashley Benson, Family & More

Cara Delevingne is the new cover star for Marie Claire‘s September 2019 issue, in which she opened up about her career, family, and relationship with girlfriend Ashley Benson.

Read on for some highlights from Cara’s feature!

Cara on her relationship with Ashley Benson:

“We weren’t looking for it. It was really just very authentic and natural.” 

On her new show Carnival Row:

“[It’s] the first [thing] I’ve done where I’m really full-blown acting.”

As for doing her own stunts for the show, Cara said: “If I hadn’t done them, I wouldn’t have been able to get there emotionally. Physicality to me is a very important way of expressing emotions.” 

On her childhood and growing up with a mother who struggled with a heroin addiction:

“I hope people never think I’m complaining. I had an incredible upbringing. I went to amazing schools. We were able to go on holiday.”

“I was a nurturing child and wanted to make sure everyone was OK. It didn’t feel wrong. But looking back, I’m like, Oh, maybe I shouldn’t have been put in that position.…But I wasn’t put in it; it just happened.”

On her family having a closer bond now:

“It’s taken time to grow apart, get some boundaries, and come back together.”

On having a mental breakdown at 15:

“Everything I hadn’t dealt with bubbled up to the surface. I had no coping skills. Instead of being able to breathe or take a moment, I tried to smash my head into a tree to knock myself out.”

“Work to me was such an escape. I don’t like using it that way anymore. I want to use it as a platform, where I’m not just running from my problems.”

Carnival Row will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on August 30.
