Cara Delevinge and Michelle Rodriguez’s romance is news and we do care
We don’t usually bother with romance rumours as a general rule.
But when the world’s biggest supermodel confirms that she is not only currently dating a woman, but that the woman in question is kick-ass actress, Michelle Rodriguez, we think that’s awesome information worthy of sharing.
"I love her, she's great," Cara Delevingne told Digital Spy at last night’s Elle Style awards, after she was asked about her rumoured relationship with the Machete Kills star.
Earlier this week, Rodriguez also apparently confirmed the romance, though many initially approached her statement with caution, as it was printed in The Mirror from what appeared to be an undisclosed interview.
"It’s going really well. She’s so cool," the Fast & Furious actress was quoted as saying about the British model.
"When we started hanging out I just thought she was awesome, and we have the best time together. She’s hard though. You wouldn’t want to mess with her in a fight."
The pair were then spotted hand-in-hand as they left one of many guerrilla Prince shows popping up around London as part of his Hit And Run tour.
Their relationship is news for many reasons, not least because it turns the table on the traditional stereotypes usually associated with 1) supermodels and 2) gay women.
Unusually, the fashion world is also giving young women a positive role model. Particularly those searching for the courage to come out publicly, and those still in the process of discovering their own sexual identities.
"It’s always fabulous to see people being open about their relationships as we know it still takes courage for women to stand up and be honest about who they love," said Ruth Hunt, Acting Chief Executive of LGB charity Stonewall.
"It’s important for young lesbians and bi women to see that they can be themselves and be happy at the same time."
For that reason, we'll keep covering it. It's up to you whether you want to read it or not.
