The magazine took some heat last month when one of its writers interviewed Delevingne and called her bisexuality "a phase." Now, in a new interview, Delevingne is finally responding.

"My sexuality is not a phase," she told The New York Times this week, adding that she saw "nothing malicious" in the Vogue article. "I am who I am."

Delevingne went public for the first time about her relationship with female singer-songwriter St. Vincent in her Vogue interview. The author of the piece, Rob Haskell, didn't buy it.

"Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara," Haskell wrote. "And they may be correct."

Many immediately criticized the author's take as homophobic, especially after, in the same interview, Delevingne got vulnerable about coming to terms with her sexuality herself.

"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 dished. "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."

Now, she's telling the Times about the other ways being in love has improved her life.

"Being in love helps, you know?" she said to the paper about how her relationship helps her live her life to the fullest. "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 is set to appear in both Paper Towns and 2016's Suicide Squad, her first feature-length performances.

"I went through so much therapy as a kid, and I hated it, and because you get so used to saying the same thing over and over again, it just becomes a story," she continued. "I always wanted to act, from when I was four years old."
