"As a child, I loved being naked. My parents would have to force me to be dressed because otherwise I'd take my clothes off and run around the supermarket. Nudity was liberation to me. Freedom. My entire family is pretty nudist-y. We went to nude beaches a lot. I always wondered why the men on nude beaches had the smallest penises." Model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne has always enjoyed being naked.
British supermodel Cara Delevingne has landed her first role as a leading lady on the big screen in the forthcoming film adaptation of hit novel Paper Towns. The runway beauty, who made her acting debut in 2012's Anna Karenina, has been tapped to portray Margo in the movie mystery, which is based on author John Green's 2008 book. The story follows two childhood pals, played by Delevingne and Nat Wolff, who embark on a revenge mission only for Margo to go missing days later.
Josh Boone, who also directed the recent film version of Green's teenage cancer novel The Fault in Our Stars, will take charge of the project, which is scheduled for release in July, 2015.
Delevingne previously landed small roles in new thriller The Face of an Angel and upcoming Johnny Depp film London Fields, while she is also in talks to star John Stamos' Beach Boys musical All Summer Long.
Attorneys representing murder suspect Amanda Knox have threatened to take legal action over new movie The Face Of An Angel. The film, starring Kate Beckinsale and model Cara Delevingne, is based on the real life murder of British student Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy in 2007. Knox, 27, was convicted of killing her roommate, but later acquitted of the crime and released from jail in 2011.
She was convicted again earlier this year (14), but remains free as she appeals against the verdict, and her lawyers fear the new movie could have a negative effect on the case.
They are now threatening to take legal action against the production company behind the movie, BBC Films.
Knox's lawyer Luciano Ghirga says of the movie, "It implies that Amanda is guilty... There have already been at least two films and 12 books about the case. If the film is based even loosely on the murder in Perugia and if it is damaging to Amanda's image, we will be asking for damages, as we have done in other cases.'"
Police were called to a star-studded party in London following the GQ Men of the Year Awards to investigate a noise complaint. After the glitzy prizegiving on Tuesday night (02Sep14), celebrity guests including Gerard Butler, Jamie Dornan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cara Delevingne and Samuel L. Jackson decamped to a private afterparty at the home of a public relations executive.
However, the bash was interrupted by cops who were called in to investigate complaints from neighbours over loud noise coming from the mansion.
A spokesperson for Scotland Yard tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "Police were called at 1.36am... to a large party. The call was passed on (to) Camden Council's Environmental Health Officer."
A statement from the local borough council adds, "Details of the noise nuisance were recorded. If a future complaint is received by the council, the details will be taken into account on (whether) further action is required."
Jonah Hill poked fun at an ex-girlfriend while picking up GQ magazine's International Man of the Year honour in London on Tuesday night (02Sep14).
The Wolf of Wall Street star took aim at his sixth grade love while accepting the style trophy from Bradley Cooper. Hill said, "Emily, my first girlfriend... You broke my heart and left it shattered. It was really sad. I know you were young and love is wild and you grow apart, but I'm GQ International Man of the f**king Year!"
The twice Oscar-nominated star joined Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Pharrell Williams, Van Morrison, New Order, new Doctor Who Peter Capaldi, racing driver Lewis Hamilton and Paulo Nutini among the big style winners, while Johnny Depp presented punk veteran Iggy Pop with GQ's Icon Award at the Royal Opera House.
And the women weren't left out - Kim Kardashian West, who was joined on the red carpet by her husband Kanye West, picked up the Woman of the Year prize and stunned in a custom-designed haute couture Ralph & Russo gown. Reminding the world her full name is now Kim Kardashian West, the reality TV star said, "I want to thank GQ for making me Woman of the Year, and my husband for making me feel like woman of the year every day."
Among those handing over the top prizes at the ceremony Lindsay Lohan, Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, Rita Ora, Cara Delevingne, Daisy Lowe, Bob Geldof, Pippa Middleton and author E.L. James, who presented her Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan with a Breakthrough Award.

British model Cara Delevingne wanted to eat an animal's heart when filming a dream sequence in her upcoming movie The Face Of An Angel.
In the drama, the catwalk beauty plays a student who teams up with a director and a journalist to make a film about a murder victim.
The story, starring Kate Beckinsale and Rush star Daniel Bruhl, is loosely based on the real-life death of Meredith Kercher in Italy in 2007, and includes a scene showing Delevingne's character eating a beating heart in a dream sequence. The model has now revealed she offered to chomp on the real thing but had to settle for a heart-shaped cake instead.
Delevingne tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "I wanted it to be a real heart, in the weirdest way... you know, a pig's heart... but instead it was made of icing and red sauce. Every time Daniel walked in, he kept laughing, which affected me - and everyone else." The drama will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada on 6 September (14) and will also be screened at the BFI London Film Festival in October (14).
Kercher's roommate, U.S. student Amanda Knox, and Knox's boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of the murder but were acquitted in 2011 after serving four years.
Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez's low-key romance is over - before either star confirmed they were dating, according to reports. The actors sparked rumours of a new relationship when they were photographed kissing while on holiday in Italy in July (14), and again when the High School Musical jetted from Los Angeles to meet Rodriguez in Ibiza, Spain, earlier this month (Aug14).
However, it seems the fling has since fizzled out, and a source tells Us Weekly that the break-up was mutual.
Prior to dating the Fast & Furious beauty, Efron dated Vanessa Hudgens for three years until 2010, while Rodriguez was recently linked to model/actress Cara Delevingne.
British supermodel Cara Delevingne is reportedly in talks to star in new Beach Boys musical All Summer Long. Actor John Stamos has re-teamed with his The Beach Boys: An American Family producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron on the project and they are eyeing the 22 year old for a leading role, according to Deadline.com. Michael Sucsy will direct the film, which will be set in 1960s California.
On/off couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez became the latest celebrities to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge over the weekend (16-17Aug14). Bieber was nominated to dunk a bucket of freezing water over his head by his manager Scooter Braun, while Gomez's pal Taylor Swift dared the singer/actress to follow her lead and raise awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease.
Bieber posted his dunking on his Instagram on Saturday (16Aug14) and nominated President Barack Obama and Ellen DeGeneres to follow suit. He did it again the following day, and this time invited his fans to take the challenge.
Gomez posted her big freeze on Sunday (17Aug14) and called upon model pals Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse as well as her Spring Breakers co-star James Franco.
Gwen Stefani also got dunked with icy water over the weekend as Blake Shelton, her co-judge on U.S. talent show The Voice poured a bucket over her posted the footage online.
The Ice Bucket Challenge is a social-media phenomenon intended to raise money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. ALS causes nerve cells in the brain and the spinal chord to eventually degenerate and die, which can lead to full muscle paralysis and respiratory failure.
Participants have 24 hours to either donate $100 (£58) to fight ALS, or dump a bucket of ice water over their heads and only donate $10 (£5.98). They then must nominate someone else to take part. Many of the celebrities who have dunked have made a donation as well.
Jon Bon Jovi also added his name to the list of Ice Bucket Challenge participants when he got dunked by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and New England Patriots boss Robert Kraft during a garden party.
Posting the footage online on Sunday, he nominated his Bon Jovi bandmates to follow his dripping wet example.
Lady Gaga is one of the latest stars to have been nominated for the challenge. She pledged a $10,000 (£5,882) donation and asked her fans around the world to follow her example.
