Cara Delevingne is getting candid about her love life (again!).

The 22-years-old supermodel first opened up about her relationship with singer St. Vincent in Vogue last month. The high fashion mag was the subject of criticism for characterizing the Brit beauty's same-sex relationship as a ‘'phase.'' However, Delevingne says she's always been bisexual.

"My sexuality is not a phase," the Paper Towns star says in a new interview with The New York Times. "I am who I am."

Delevingne adds that her relationship with her girlfriend has helped her become a better actor.

"Being in love helps, you know?" she said. "If you're in love with someone, you can be with them like no one else is in the room. Acting is like that. It's like taking that feeling and turning it on so nothing else matters when you're looking in another actor's face."

Delevingne's Vogue interview was the first time she publically talked about being bisexual. "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," she told the mag. "It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it."

Meanwhile, Delevingne told the NYT she hopes to follow in the footsteps of Charlize Theron, whose career also began with modeling. "People can put you in whatever box: model, whatever," she said. "But if I just keep going and actually do it well, which I hope I can, then I hope people will give me more movies—and I'll win an Oscar!"
