Cara Delevingne is showing signs of being a new movie actress by complaining about Suicide Squad’s bad reviews. While the more accomplished Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn in the movie, is staying quiet about it, Cara Delevingne has used the publicity she has gotten from her birthday to speak out about the injustice. Cara celebrated her birthday with her girlfriend, Annie Clark.
While the bad reviews of Suicide Squad have not deterred fans from flocking to the cinema to see it, the negativity has brought down the morale of the cast.
“The critics have been absolutely horrific, they’re really, really horrible. You know, I just don’t think they like superhero movies,” Cara said to Reuters.
After being in a handful movies like Paper Town and Anna Karenina, the 24-year-old actress may have felt that she now has the right to protest the horrible reviews that her latest cinematic venture received.
Despite being panned, the movie, thanks to its massive following and a bunch of Harley Quinn fans, did well in box office. The film managed to “open with an estimated $135.1 million in North American ticket sales, scoring one of the year’s biggest box-office debuts,” according to Fox News.
However, critically speaking, it was decimated. It currently has 27 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and critics absolutely went to town to deconstruct the film one bit at a time.
New Yorker reviewer Anthony Lane wrote, “To say that the movie loses the plot would not be strictly accurate, for that would imply that there was a plot to lose,” while Globe and Mail wrote, “Regrettably, the film’s place-setting opening lays the scene for a different, more exciting film that never really unfolds.”
At least Cara Delevingne didn’t have a big enough role to really affect the next film gig that she nabs!
Other than the opening of Suicide Squad, the model-turned-actress had other reasons to celebrate. She turned 24 this summer, and she had her girlfriend, Annie Clark, who is known as St. Vincent on stage, to celebrate it with. She also got a shout out from all her friends in the fashion industry, Hollywood, and the high society of England and the US.
Taylor Swift posted the picture that triggered the term “Squad Goals” again on Instagram in commemoration of the model’s birthday.
Her fellow model, Karlie Kloss, also posted a never-been-seen before photo of her and Cara. Being slightly younger, the American supermodel wrote the sweetest things in the captions.
On top of it all, Cara’s girlfriend of several years, Annie Clark, posted a short, sharp, but sweet message on her Instagram with a picture that highlights the birthday girl’s best-known features; her eyes and eyebrows. While Annie Clark and Cara Delevingne are rarely seen together, they were last spotted during Taylor Swift’s Fourth of July bash.
“Cara Delevingne and her girlfriend St. Vincent couldn’t help but share a sweet while taking a moment for themselves during Taylor Swift’s star-studded Independence Day party in Rhodes Island,” reports Daily Mail. “The British model-turned actress, 23, was seen enjoying the sunshine on the balcony of Taylor’s home with her long-term partner, the two of them snuggling up together.”
Afterward, the 24-year-old Brit came out with a declaration of love for her girlfriend.
“I’m completely in love… Before, I didn’t know what love was – real love,” she said to British Vogue. “I didn’t understand the depth of it. I always used to think it was you against the world. Now I know the meaning of life is love. Whether that’s for yourself or for the world or your partner.”
