Cara Delevingne Talks Dating: 'Guys Just Want To Have Sex With You'

Considering Cara Delevingne fell asleep twice during her interview with US Vogue, it was a wise choice for Bryony Gordon to interview the model in bed, quite literally. But this time, Cara didn't nod off - instead, she chatted bags, boys and bunnies while under the duvet at (where else?) the Chiltern Firehouse for a profile with The Telegraph

During the interview, Cara cleaned up the wee of her pet rabbit ("I'm a good mother," she says) and reveals she recovered from Poppy's five-day wedding bash in Marrakesh by spending all day "eating crap food and watching bad TV". Also the best thing she gets sent is socks because "I used to always have bags of odd ones".

Here's what else we learned when Bryony hopped into bed with Cara...

She uses social media to show models have personalities

"I think it's nice to break down that barrier, that models are seen and not heard... I mean, Kate [Moss] is incredibly open, but she chooses who she is open to. I'm just open, generally. But I feel that's when you really connect with someone."

She "doesn't really care" about sexuality

"I think people shouldn't be scared of [sexuality]. I'm young, I'm having fun, I don't want to pretend to be something I'm not. So I don't really care on that matter. People can say what they want, but I'm having a good time. I know what people are doing who are my age; I just think it would be a lie to pretend that I'm not having a good time."

She doesn't meet men who just want to be friends

"The funny thing is, I always used to have more guy friends. At school, I was a tomboy and it would be me and all my guy friends. But now... I don't know. It's kind of changed quite a bit. I still have my old friends from school, but I think... I don't meet men now who just want to be my friend. It doesn't really happen that much. They're just shallow like that. Unless it's one of my girlfriend's boyfriends, most guys are not like, 'Oh, we should just be mates.' I think it's harder to become friends with guys, because guys just want to have sex with you."

She used to be angry about modelling

"I never really thought about wasn't something I ever wanted to do. I used to always be so angry about modelling. I was always like, 'F***, I'm never going to able to act because I'm a model.'"

Her first proper handbag was the Alexa

"The first proper handbag I had was the Alexa [named after Alexa Chung] and I wore it every day until it broke. And I remember actually meeting Alexa for the first time and being, like, 'Ohmygod she's got a fricking handbag!' When [Mulberry] asked me, I couldn't believe it, I thought they were lying."

She wants to design a line of tweezers

"if I put my name to something, and I am criticised for it, I want to know that I've at least had my full stamp on it... I'm quite surprised that nobody has asked me to do my own line of tweezers. I totally would love to do that. Or, like, mascara. Cara's Mascara! Ahahahaha."

Billy Bob Thornton said she's a good actress

"I got so scared [working with Amber Heard and Billy Bob Thornton], because they are the most incredible actors. But fear and nervousness are something that can hold you back quite majorly. I just wanted to be inside their head, I just wanted to learn... he said, 'As an actor I can spot straight away when someone can act, and you can act.' He told me you can't teach a bad actor to act, but you can make a good actor worse. So he was like, 'Don't feel you have to learn.' "

She's sad to miss out on a normal life

"You know, I love putting myself in other people's shoes, but I can never really experience it, which I find really sad. I love talking to my friends at uni and seeing what they are doing. They're just finishing their dissertations and I kind of wish I could live their life for a second. I wish my school days could have dragged on a little longer, or that I could go back and do it later in life. I always used to get really depressed… Well, not really depressed, but really upset if everything was getting a bit crazy, because I can never take this all away for a minute. I can't turn around, you know? I've got to keep on going. If there's a moment where I just want it all to disappear and go back… well, I can't. And that used to terrify me."
