I was a bag of nerves on first day of filming Cecelia book, says Suki

BRADLEY Cooper's other half Suki Waterhouse has it all; a blossoming career, legs that go on for days, a glimmering social circle and a painfully handsome A-List boyfriend.

She should have confidence by the bucket load.

But 23-year-old Suki, who stars in Cecelia Ahern's upcoming film Love Rosie, was a bag of nerves on the first day of the shoot.

"Love Rosie was the first big feature I've done," she said.

"I was here for two months filming. So I was thrown in the deep end. I was very nervous at the beginning but it was an incredible experience."

 

NASTY

The film was based on Cecelia's best-seller Where Rainbows End.

"I hadn't read the book before we started filming, but Cecelia was on set one day and gave me a signed copy, which was lovely. I have such massive respect for her."

Londoner Suki plays Bethany in the up-coming romantic comedy.

"She's not nasty but she's very feisty and competitive," Suki said.

"She's the popular girl in school and can be mean.

"I found it really enjoyable playing someone a bit obnoxious."

The film is set across several decades and Suki, who is best friends with model of the moment Cara Delevingne, said she loved dressing up in retro clothes.

"All the cast got together and had a brainstorming session about the clothes – some of the film was set in 2002 and there were lots of Britney style crop tops.

"I really loved filming in Dublin. I seemed to spend a lot of my time there dancing – I went to Lillie's Bordello.

"I also went to see Robbie Williams play when I was here, so there are a lot of fond memories."

While she has no waxes lyrical about dancing on table tops, Suki is hesitant to talk about her love life.

"Why would I talk about it?

"When I first started reading articles I would get upset. But then I thought I can either read this stuff and go crazy and become some sort of cavewoman or I can just live me life.

"I'm not going to change my life because of the press. I like getting on a plane looking like a tramp and I'm not going to change that."

 

WARDROBE

Suki was talking at the launch of A Toast to Chic at Kildare Village.

The actress-turned-model is known for her covetable wardrobe.

"I don't know how to describe my style," she said. "Sometimes it's just a case of what's nearest the bedroom door."
