American model turned actress Cara Delevingne isn't just known for her work on the runway or on-screen. She's also gained a ton of media attention due to her long-term relationship with fellow American actress Ashley Benson. Delevingne and Benson have been together for well over a year, but the beautiful duo keeps garnering a ton of attention anyways. Fans and paparazzi alike can't get enough of them.
Unsurprisingly, Delevingne and Benson also can't get enough of one another. Yet little is really know about their relationship; they only came out with it after being a couple for about a year. But while they tend to keep their relationship private, they have been spotted acting cute in public on several occasions. Despite being so careful to keep a lot of their relationship to themselves, they don't always keep their mouths shut.
More recently, Delevingne had the honour of winning the #GirlHero Award by a non-profit organization called Girl Up. Girl Up "supports UN programs promoting the health, safety, education, and leadership of girls in developing countries". Prior to receiving the award, the actress took a moment to rave about Benson in an interview.
"It's so nice to have someone in my life that supports me so much and loves me. I'm the luckiest girl in the world," Delevingne happily gushed.
While it was adorable to hear such a thing, Delevingne understands that being in a same-sex relationship isn't easy due to how homosexual people are treated. Plus, there are many people who struggle with their identity one way or another. So, she took a moment to give some advice to those who currently find themselves in this painful situation.
"It's a really difficult time and place to be in," Delevinge explained. "But at the end of the day, if you love yourself, you need to honor yourself in being able to speak out and being confident in who you are. That's the only way you'll ever be able to find your family. You know, we all have our family who we're born with, but we all find our family, like our tribe, where we belong. So, the only way you'll do that is by being honest. And even if you don't get it right, even if you find out you identify one way but then you switch to another, it doesn't matter. It's not something that's meant to be fixed. It's fluid."
