The 'Suicide Squad' actress - who came out as pansexual soon after she split from Ashley Benson - admits the way she defines herself "still changes all the time" but she insists she is much more "comfortable" with her sexuality now than she was before.

Speaking on the Make It Reign podcast, she said: "The way I define myself still changes all the time, whether it's pansexual, bisexual - I don't really know. It's like a pendulum swinging, but almost now I feel far more comfortable being bisexual than I used to.

"I've kind of felt because I was lacking in my desire for women or love for women that I kind of just went one way and now it changes a lot more. I feel a lot more free and being more comfortable in it because before I was like, 'Oh, I'm gay'. That comes with self-shaming."

Cara previously admitted she felt "suicidal" whilst struggling with her sexuality when she was a teenager.

The 28-year-old actress and model said: “I grew up in an old-fashioned household. I didn’t know anyone who was gay. I didn’t know that was a thing and actually I think growing up I was quite not noticeably, I wasn’t knowledgeable of the fact I was homophobic. The idea of being same sex [partners], I was disgusted by that, in myself. I was like, 'Oh my God, I would never, that’s disgusting, ugh.'

"I do correlate the massive depression and the suicidal moments of my life [to that] because I was so ashamed of ever being that. But actually that was the part of me that I love so much and accept."
