Cara Delevingne’s Suicide Squad Audition is the Weirdest Thing You’ll Hear Today
Suicide Squad is one of the most highly-anticipated movies of the summer, and rightfully so. It’s based on the DC Comics antihero team of the same name, plus it boasts a cast that includes Cara Delevingne, Scott Eastwood, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Ben Affleck, Jared Leto & Jai Courtney!
While we anxiously await the day when it hits theaters — August 5 can’t come any sooner! — we’re reading basically every cast member interview that comes out. The latest one: Cara’s Q&A on her audition. And, let us tell you, it’s a bit… odd.
For her cover spread with W magazine, she said, “[Director] David Ayer asked me to read a scene from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? I love that play and had acted in it at school when I was 17, so I was excited.”
Here’s where it gets weird: “Somehow, when we were doing the scene, I became livid. I hadn’t felt rage like that in years. And then I got the part! There still wasn’t a script, but David asked me to go and try and find a forest and, if it was a full moon, get naked and walk through the woods with my feet in the mud, which I did. There wasn’t a full moon, but I howled like a wolf. It would have been really funny if someone had seen me.”
