The Brit model-turned-actress revealed that to get in the mindset of DC Comics sorceress, she took a starkers stroll through a forest by her sister Poppy’s home. And it’s all down to Suicide Squad director David Ayer.“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” she said.
“[We met] at a hotel in London on a dark and stormy night. He didn’t tell me anything about the movie,” she revealed. “Instead, he showed me pictures of these amazing, enlightened, powerful, but very evil women. He spoke to me about addiction and mental illness, which are things I find very, very interesting.
“The next time I met David was at his house in LA. He 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. 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!”
“I only dreamed of being male superheroes. Spider-Man, especially, had a cool costume and cool toys,” she said. “There were not many strong superhero-type women, apart from Wonder Woman—but I didn’t want to be a 5-year-old running around in, like, a bikini.”
