Delevingne, who plays beloved antihero Enchantress in David Ayer's film, opened up to W magazine Wednesday about how she got herself in the Suicide Squad frame of mind. The acting tip? Running through a forest naked. Cara Delevinge "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 came back the next meeting with David Ayer with confidence."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!" Since a finished script was not available, Ayer suggested Delevingne prepare for her to take on Enchantress in a less traditional 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," the model turned actress star recalled. "There wasn't a full moon, but I howled like a wolf." Related: How a Bad Interview Made Cara Delevingne an A-List Celebrity Via W Magazine  What do you think?
