Cara Delevingne on people calling her gay: "That's great"

Cara Delevingne isn't the biggest fan of labels, but thanks to her relationship with girlfriend St. Vincent, she understands that they can be important.

"As a child, I used 'gay' as a bad world, as in, 'That's so gay,'" Delevingne said in an interview with Vogue. "All my friends did. I'm obviously in love, so if people want to say I'm gay, that's great. But we're all liquid -- we change, we grow."

Delevingne is definitely not afraid to throw around the L-word when talking about her relationship.

"I'm completely in love," she said. "Before, I didn't know what love was -- real love. I didn't understand the depth of it. I always used to think it was you against the world. Now I know the meaning of life is love. Whether that's for yourself or for the world or your partner."

Delevingne also took a moment during the interview to chime in on the topic of equal pay -- especially in movies, where she's been making a name for herself with films like "Paper Towns" and this weekend's "Suicide Squad."

"I act for love. I would probably still do it even if I wasn't paid at all," she said. But in terms of equal pay, I need to be paid the same as the guy who has equal billing with me. Otherwise I won't do it. Because if you accept less, you're just letting everyone else down and continuing the cycle."
