Let a girl live, damn.

Cara Delevingne is just trying to live her best life, y'all. And that means pursuing her acting dreams (opens in new tab) and following her heart (opens in new tab)—both of which have earned her some completely unsolicited (and unnecessary) critiques.

First, there's the whole "bisexuality is a phase" thing that was suggested in a recent Vogue article. "My sexuality is not a phase," Delevingne shot back in an interview with The New York Times (opens in new tab). "I am who I am."

Second, the actress was asked (a couple of times, we might add) what she thought of those who have said she's undeserving of movie roles (opens in new tab). "People can put you in whatever box: model, whatever," she said (opens in new tab). "But if I just keep going and actually do it well, which I hope I can, then I hope people will give me more movies—and I'll win an Oscar!" 

Another time (opens in new tab), the actress got more candid: "If anyone just thought I was trying to pad my résumé, they can suck my...boobs." 

Cara, never change.
