Cara Delevingne has bared all in a new photoshoot for Esquire.
The model-turned-actress posed in a series of striking black and white shots, and opened up on everything from preparing for her latest film role to battling depression and her issues with the fashion industry.
Delevingne, who plays witch Enchantress in DC Comics action flick Suicide Squad, revealed that part of her preparation for the part saw her walk naked through a forest.
“I wasn’t naked when I walked there. I walked there with my clothes on, and then when I got there I took them off,” she explained.
The 23-year-old confessed that she struggled with mental health issues in her teenage years.
“I was suicidal,” she said. “I couldn’t deal with it any more. I realised how lucky I was and privileged I was, but all I wanted to do was die.
“I felt so guilty because of that and hated myself because of that, and then it’s a cycle. I didn’t want to exist anymore. I wanted for each molecule of my body to disintegrate. I wanted to die.”
As for modelling? Delevingne is still largely unenthusiastic about the industry and its treatment of models.
“It’s not about what’s underneath, it’s not about being yourself,” she said. “You don’t feel you matter as a person,” she explains. “You feel like it’s just about your looks – and it is.”
