David Ayer asked Cara Delevingne to run naked in the woods to prepare for ‘Suicide Squad’

Cara Delevingne has talked about her Suicide Squad audition before, but in the June/July issue of W Magazine she went into a lot more detail. To say it was bizarre is a bit of an understatement!

Lynn Hirschberg: Did you have to audition for Suicide Squad?

Cara Delevingne: Yes. I met the director, David Ayer, at a hotel in London on a dark and stormy night. 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. The next time I met David was at his house in L.A. 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! 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.
