Suki Waterhouse may be best known as Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend—the pair have been together since March 2013—but this will change as American audiences discover that the English model turned actress contains multitudes. The face of Burberry’s beauty campaign will appear in Jane Austen's upcoming undead redux, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. You can also catch her as Marlene, a gutsy member of the Dauntless faction, in this month's Insurgent. And those are just her official roles.
Here, Waterhouse let us in on her less-heralded skills:
1. She's a brown belt in karate."I wish I'd kept it up, but being hit in the boobs when you're first getting them was horrible."
2. She'd like to be a designer de la fashion."I want to do a couple of jumpers where everything is written in butchered French, like 'Je Cannot Deal.’"
3. She's a budding photographer."It's a hobby, but I did have an exhibition with two other people in London. I take my camera to shoots and ask all the photographers and assistants to show me what to do with it."
In InStyle’s March 2015 issue, Waterhouse takes us on a sexy boho tour through Malibu, Calif. Go behind the scenes at the photo shoot:
