Pop & Suki: meet the besties behind the bags
Twenty millennial stars shot in L.A. and N.Y. — including Ansel Elgort, Suki Waterhouse and Tye Sheridan — reveal what’s Hollywood about their lives (“health insurance from SAG!”), embarrassing auditions for Eminem (“I said, I want hair on my back”) and inspirations from Russell Simmons to Julia Roberts.
“People would tell me all the time, ‘You’re so not a model, you’re such an actress,’ and I’d be like, ‘I know, I’m such a shit model,'” jokes the London native of her transition from that career to acting, which took off when she landed the lead opposite Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey in The Bad Batch, a cannibal love story that premiered in September at the Toronto Film Festival. In the queue (after a few months of acting classes in New York): the crime thriller Billionaire Boys Club and the sci-fi drama Jonathan (both with her Insurgent co-star Ansel Elgort) as well as Starz miniseries The White Princess.
I’m still starstruck by: “I did come across Julia Roberts once, and I just kind of convulsed, and then I whispered, ‘Thank you.’ ”
What made me want to act: “Sex, Lies and Videotape. I’m obsessed with Laura San Giacomo.”
How I celebrated my first big role: “I don’t really celebrate. I think, ‘Oh my God, I’ve got so much work to do.'”

In the new issue, out 3rd November, Suki talks online dating, being rubbish on social media and reveals what the future has in store.
Discussing her love life, Suki, who previously dated Bradley Cooper, said: “I’m on Raya [a dating app popular with celebrities, aka The Illuminati Tinder]. Me and my sister [Immy, also a model and actress] are on it. We just talk to each other instead of potential dates. I know that in the future I want to be in a committed, loving relationship and have kids. Even though I’m happy being single, I spend a lot of time dreaming about being in love. But right now, I’m building… I’m doing all these things for me. I don’t know if I have the tools to be in a relationship right now.”
Suki is too busy for love, what with a stellar modelling career and a new business venture with her TV presenter best friend, Poppy Jamie. The pair decided there were no fashion brands who catered for girls who wanted to enjoy fashion with their friends, so they decided to do something about it. Enter accessories brand, POP&SUKI. The collection launches at the end of the month, and it’s guaranteed to be on everyone’s Christmas list this year.
Suki and Poppy are very active on social media, but Suki says it’s not all as it seems: “It’s all grossly inaccurate,” she said. “Everything that’s put on social media is distorted. All these steps that you take to show everyone on the internet that you’re perfect.
“It’s not even a tiny bit like it. But still, I’ll look at someone’s account and think, ‘Wouldn’t it be great to be her?’ It’s stupid. I know that people are looking at my account and might be thinking the same.”
