You might know Cara Delevingne best for killing it on the catwalks or for her acting roles, but she’s apparently working on a new non-fiction documentary for the BBC.
Deadline say Hulu and the BBC are pushing for a six-part series with Cara, which has the working title Planet Sex, about human sexuality and gender.
The report claims the documentary will be a ‘high end’ series (whatever that means), with Cara hoping to ‘explore big questions about human sexuality, examining issues including relationships, sex appeal and the popularity of pornography.’
In the series, the 28-year-old will take part in experiments conducted by world-leading sex labs, and visit communities who experience gender and sexuality very differently. Filming for the documentary was meant to be taking place this summer, but was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
While Cara currently hasn’t spoken out about the documentary, the model-turned-actress-turned-documentary-maker has previously opened up about struggling with her own identity. ‘Pride to me is a sense of something that I never really had as a kid,’ she told Variety.
‘A sense of pride is like a sense of belonging, a family outside your family, a place where you don’t have to apologise or feel ashamed. I always felt like I didn’t belong in my own body. I felt so lost.’
She also went on to identify as pansexual, which means you’re capable of being attracted to anyone, regardless of their gender identity. ‘The thing is with me, I change a lot,’ she explained. ‘I feel different all the time. Some days, I feel more womanly. Some days, I feel more like a man. I always will remain, I think, pansexual.’
