In the run-up to the release of Suicide Squad much has been said about Jared Leto's Joker and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.
Decisively little has been said on Cara Delevingne's Enchantress though, maybe that's due to her being featured much less in the trailers than the former two.
Until now, as Delevingne has spoken on her 'creative process' for getting into the role and it's much more interesting than mailing live rats to people and other weird shit that Leto reportedly got up to.
Talking to W Magazine earlier this week, the 23-year-old said she would often get naked.
"I met the director, David Ayer, at a hotel in London on a dark and stormy night," Delevingne said. "He didn't tell me anything about the movie. 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."
Delevingne became intrigued by it all:
"The next time I met David was at his house in L.A.," she said. "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!"
When she accepted the role, a finished script wasn't available so Ayer asked her to prepare in a slightly unorthodox way.
"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."
Suicide Squad hits cinemas on August 5th and although it features many villains it will not be awarded the luxury of an R-rating that every comic book movie now lusts in the wake of Deadpool's immense success.
