Cara Delevingne has stepped away from modeling as much to focus on her acting career, and we’ll see her on the big screen next month in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Before then, she’s the leading lady on the cover of Glamour. Her feature interview was conducted by one Adwoa Aboah, Delevingne’s best friend and fellow it-model — but don’t call them “model best friends.” “We were friends before,” Adwoa explains. “What I’ve always been grateful for in our friendship is that we expect absolutely nothing from each other, just friendship.”

Like best friends do, the pair open up about everything from Cara’s passion for acting to her friendship with co-star Rihanna. The topic of sexuality even comes up, a timely one for Pride month, and Adwoah asks, “What happened when you spoke out?”

“Once I spoke about my sexual fluidity, people were like, ‘So you’re gay.’ And I’m like, ‘No, I’m not gay.’ A lot of the friends I have who are straight have such an old way of thinking. It’s ‘So you’re just gay, right?’ [They] don’t understand it. [If] I’m like, ‘Oh, I really like this guy,’ [they’re like], ‘But you’re gay.’ I’m like, ‘No, you’re so annoying!’…. Someone is in a relationship with a girl one minute, or a boy is in a relationship with a boy, I don’t want them to be pigeonholed. Imagine if I got married to a man…I’m not gay. I’m fluid! I like fluid.”

Find the rest of the conversation at Glamour. Then don’t forget to check out the trailer for Valerian, which releases in theaters July 21.
