Fast 5 with Suki Waterhouse

Fast 5 with Suki Waterhouse

1. IT GIRL

You can't miss this 22-year-old.

A quick search on Google and you'll find her name popping up all over as this actress has gone from London's party scene to supermodel to burgeoning Hollywood player.

She also happens to be Bradley Cooper's girlfriend.

Yes, the Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook guy. The relationship has raised a few eyebrows. Cooper is 17 years older than her.

2. THIRD WHEEL

She has been dating Cooper for over a year now.

Apparently, she even lives with his mother whenever the actress is in Los Angeles.

It's a much better situation than her character's in Love, Rosie.

In the rom-com starring Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, Waterhouse plays model Bethany, who becomes the wedge between Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin).

"I play the girl who gets in the way," Waterhouse told Vogue UK. "The girl in the movie who everyone's like, 'What is he doing with her? Go back to the other one!'"

3. HOLLYWOOD CALLING

Earning a part in Love, Rosie, is a first step to a booming Hollywood career.

She has finished filming Insurgent - the sequel to last year's young adult hit flick Divergent starring Shailene Woodley - which will open here in March next year.

Waterhouse plays Marlene, who becomes an ally to Woodley's Tris.

Sounds like a chance for Waterhouse to show off her black-belt karate skills.

4. FASHION-FORWARD

Approached by a modelling talent scout at a London nightclub when she was 16, Waterhouse only started modelling two years later.

But she was an instant hit, with campaigns for Swatch, H&M and Max Studio.

The pretty blonde also stumbled into becoming Burberry's muse after she ran into the brand's creative consultant at a London gym last year.

Waterhouse told Elle: "I know it's cool to pretend you don't care, but I love fashion and I love clothes. It's fantastic to be able to play with them."

5. FUSS-FREE

Having a successful plastic surgeon as your father - who happens to own a posh clinic - means Waterhouse has access to a wealth of facial treatments and products.

The self-professed tomboy insisted to the London Evening Standard that she's "quite low-maintenance", but she did admit that occasionally she would "go to my dad's skin clinic and abuse it".
