British model and actress Cara Delevingne revealed herself on screen for the first time in the upcoming docuseries “Planet Sex” and said she realized she was more intelligent than she thought.
Speaking at international TV market Mipcom in Cannes on Tuesday, the 30-year-old told interviewer Emma Cox that the Fremantle-produced Hulu show and the BBC had taken her in a direction she had never known before to tell her personal journey with sexuality. Series.
“I’ll have a notebook that says it’s going to be a room I walked into in a masturbation seminar, and instead it was a pink, leather gym mat on the floor, with six people going, ‘Okay, take off your underwear. This is lube,’ Delevingne explained. “I didn’t know I was smart. I think I’m a pretty hip, young, cool, anything-with-everything kind of girl, but I’m like, ‘Sorry, what? Sorry, no, absolutely, I wouldn’t do that.’ But I did whatever I was comfortable with.
Delevingne said, “She never had a moment of arrest. “What are we doing today? Because every day was completely different. I was used to being a captain but this was absurd. One day you’re having an orgasm and getting your blood drawn, the next day you’re going to the sex library. And I was like, ‘Okay, okay, put my head back.’
Delevingne will be in Cannes to promote the show, which has been sold to 92 markets, ahead of its premiere on Hulu later this year. A 10-minute preview of Episode 1 was shown to the audience at the Grand Palais, who were under strict instructions not to photograph or film any of the hour-long session (including the Q&A). In the first minutes of the show, Delevingne – who is generally associated with female partners – says she is “100%” queer.
Fremantle England boss Simon Andrea explained that the basic concept of “Planet Sex” is that “in each episode Cara explores one of those big questions. [about sexuality]Ask her above, go on a journey of discovery through the laboratory, different cultures, different individuals, her own mind and body and come to a conclusion.
But Andrea – who first conceived the concept five years ago and put Delevingne in touch with WME through their US agent – “wanted to avoid the usual Hollywood fences because you don’t want to offend anyone” and finally got around to it. A true conclusion, he says, “sexuality ends when you’re born.”
When asked how the BBC “handled” the vexed subject of “Planet Sex”, he admitted that the BBC versions were “a bit different from all the versions”. “There’s usually an extra layer and information section under science, but this is the BBC and they’ve gone for more – I’m not sure ‘hardcore’ is the right word – but show a clearer version.”
Delevingne, who is an executive producer through her production banner Milkshake Productions, said that working on the episode, which was filmed during the outbreak, was “very eye-opening for me.” Because of her personal nature, she was eager to tackle the project.
“I feel like I need this in my life, really,” she said. “Maybe not to do it on camera – I mean, it was something I wanted to do for other people, but for me, I grew up a lot. Before I did this, I chose to step back from love and relationships for a while and this made me realize again how much I needed to fix some things in my life and Then he made me move on. I grew up a lot.”
Delevingne says she hasn’t come to any conclusions about who she is, but she’s “more accepting” of herself. Asked if it was difficult to get so personal on screen, the model said she “signed up for this life” but “she wasn’t honest enough about it.”
“I don’t think I’ve talked about it enough, if I could or would live with the impact I could have on one person or group of kids. “Yes, showing my face to the person I love, being of the same sex, was something, but that wasn’t enough in the real path and real journey that I’ve been on in life – the hard times, the good times, the good times…I was upset with myself that I didn’t do it earlier,” Delevingne said. .
