Cara Delevingne Goes Completely Nude for 'Esquire UK'

Cara Delevingne went a little method when preparing for her role as June Moone in Suicide Squad.

The model-turned-actress reveals to Esquire UK that in addition to researching mental health and addiction, she also spent a creepy night in the woods in order to embrace her role as the Enchantress. "What? You mean you actually walked naked into a forest at night, on your own?" Esquire's Alex Bilmes asks.

"Well, I wasn't naked when I walked there," Delevingne recalls. "I walked there with my clothes on, and then when I got there I took them off."

As for whether she got "chilly" during her naked night in the wild, the 23-year-old star adds, "Not really. It was summer."

Delevingne puts her modeling skills to work for Esquire UK, posing completely nude in the men's magazine. While she's been hailed as the next Kate Moss, Delevingne admits that she does not particularly enjoy modeling and isn't thrilled about working in the fashion industry.

"Modelling is not something I love," she confides. "It always felt like a job. It was never a passion. It was more like a part I played."

She also slams the fashion industry, calling it "surface."

"It's not about what's underneath, it's not about being yourself. You don't feel you matter as a person," she explains. "You feel like it's just about your looks -- and it is."

Delevingne talks about having issues with the industry from the get-go. "I just remember being like, 'This is insane. People need to lighten up. We're not f**king changing the world. I'm sorry. So everyone should stop taking themselves so f**king seriously and just laugh at it all.'"

While the British star's life seems on the up-and-up, she is very open about her struggle with depression. "I think I properly started dealing with depression when I was about 16," she shares. "As a kid I felt like I had to be good and I had to be strong because my mum wasn't. So, when it got to being a teenager and all the hormones and the pressure and wanting to do well at school -- for my parents, not for me -- I had a mental breakdown."

On a happier note, Delevinge says she's now madly in with girlfriend St. Vincent. "When you find a real love, you look back on the other loves you've had and you're like, 'Ooh, that was a bit destructive,'" she gushes.
