Disney Princesses caused sexuality-related struggles claims Cara Delevingne.
Model and actor Cara Delevingne is opening up about her sexuality and has some harsh words for the stereotypical world of Disney princesses.
Despite the beauties like Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, and the rest being a big influence on the childhood of many, Delevingne thinks that Hollywood needs to change its take on Disney princesses.
The world has witnessed 82 years of pretty princesses and their perilous adventures ever since the Snow White and the Seven Dwarves in 1937. Even if the most recent addition is Brave‘s Merida, there is often a presence of loyal fanbase for the ‘unofficial’ princesses like Esmerelda, Megara, and Moana, who are yet to enter the mainstream of Disney princesses.

Delevingne confessed during the podcast,
“I have sisters, but I spent a lot of time alone, and films and fantasy and books were so incredible to me,”
The 26-year-old added,
“I learnt so many lessons from that—from Disney and that kind of fairytale thing.”
Nonetheless, Cara believes the fantasy sagas of Disney had a negative effect in some respects. She continued,
“I was like, ‘Disney princesses all love men. That’s the way it is, and I’m not going to be a princess if I don’t, you know what I mean?’”
Visage contributed to the intriguing conversation adding that an evolving Disney “could make a big difference in this world” by making a drastic shift in the stereotypes. Delevingne agreeably expressed that she tries to teach her young cousins about gender fluidity.
