Delev­ingne looks for strong fe­male roles

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Cara Delev­ingne only wants to play "strong, in­de­pen­dent fe­males' in movies. The su­per­model-and-ac­tress can cur­rently be seen as Sergeant Lau­re­line in Luc Bes­son's sci-fi movie 'Va­le­rian and the City of a Thou­sand Plan­ets' and af­ter mak­ing a few forays onto the big screen she wants to push a mes­sage of fe­male em­pow­er­ment to cin­ema go­ers with the roles she ac­cepts. Speak­ing in Lon­don's Le­ices­ter Square at the Euro­pean pre­miere of the block­buster on Mon­day night the 24year-old beauty said: "It's cul­mi­na­tion of the role, ob­vi­ously, what the role stands for. "I think at the mo­ment I'm re­ally go­ing for re­ally strong in­de­pen­dent fe­males." Delev­ingne also said that Bes­son, who di­rected the cult movie 'The Fifth El­e­ment', opened her eyes to the sci-fi genre. She said: "He re­ally opened my eyes to sci-fi af­ter Dis­ney. It's re­ally crazy that I'm stand­ing here to­day af­ter be­ing in one of his films af­ter watch­ing his films. Af­ter all the in­cred­i­ble women he puts in his films, I'm just so thank­ful that he chose me." Delev­ingne was last seen as En­chantress in DC Ex­tended Uni­verse movie 'Sui­cide Squad', and al­though it re­ceived mixed re­views she was proud of the movie and her own de­rided per­for­mance. She said: "I think it would be very wrong to take it per­son­ally. At the end of the day all we want as ac­tors is to por­tray the world we live through as best we can and hope au­di­ences con­nect with that." 'Va­le­rian and the City of a Thou­sand Plan­ets' also stars Dane DeHaan as well as pop su­per­star Ri­hanna.— Bang Showbiz
