Cara Delevingne Says Ashley Benson Makes Her a ‘Happier, Better Person’
In a new interview with Porter, the supermodel revealed her relationship with the Pretty Little Liars alum "definitely makes [her] a better, happier person" because, for the first time, she feels like she can let someone in.
In fact, Delevingne admitted Benson is the first partner she's trusted. “I’d never truly let anyone in before, for fear of them leaving,” she said. “I never really trusted people, or felt worthy of it, and I always pushed them away."
Delevingne added, "She’s the first person that has said: ‘You can’t push me away. I’m going to be nice to you, I love you.’ I’m just like, ‘Wait, so all I have to do is just let you be nice to me? Why have I never done that before? Okay.'”
The actress went on to say she and Benson spent seven months apart when she was in Prague filming Carnival Row with Orlando Bloom, but that they were determined to make things work. “Long-distance relationships are always tough,” Delevingne confessed. “We make it work, though. We have to."
The couple, who met on the set of the movie Her Smell, first sparked dating rumors in May 2018 after they were spotted getting cozy in New York. Since then, they've pretty much been inseparable — and though they're private about their romance, the two recently posted a steamy Instagram video to celebrate their one-year anniversary.
