Suki Waterhouse has reportedly split from longtime boyfriend Bradley Cooper, but it doesn’t appear she’s suffering – at least not career-wise. Just hours after reports started swirling that the model/actress had parted ways with her 40-year-old Oscar-nominated beau, the British beauty has now reportedly landed a major movie role.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Waterhouse, 23, has snagged the starring role in director Ana Lily Amirpour's upcoming feature “The Bad Batch.” Produced by Annapurna Pictures and Vice Films, the movie is being described as a dystopian love story set in a “Texas wasteland."
Waterhouse will have plenty of A-listers to keep her company on set. It's being reported that “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" star Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey will star. “Milk” actor Diego Luna and Yolanda Ross are also listed on the film’s roster. The romance movie is expected to begin production in Los Angeles next month.
While Waterhouse is best known for walking the catwalk, this isn’t her first role on the big screen. Last year, she had a supporting role in the romantic adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s novel “Love, Rosie," portrayed “Hunger Games” star Sam Claflin’s high school love interest Bethany. More recently, Waterhouse has starred as Marlene in “Insurgent,” the second installment in the blockbuster “Divergent” franchise. The film premiered in theaters Thursday.
Before “The Bad Batch” debuts in 2016, moviegoers can catch Waterhouse in the Jane Austen-inspired “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” The horror/comedy is currently in post-production and is scheduled to hit theaters later this year.
While Waterhouse’s career is picking up speed, her love life recently hit a roadblock. E! Online is reporting that the star recently split from Cooper after two years of dating. Their breakup is said to have occurred in January, before they appeared at the 87th annual Academy Awards. Despite ending their romance, People Magazine reports that the duo “remained friends” and even dined together at Nobu Malibu the day after the show.
While Waterhouse hasn't spoken about her rumored split from the “American Sniper” star, she hasn’t taken a break from social media. Ahead of the premiere of “Insurgent," she took to Twitter to share her excitement over the action film’s impending release Thursday.
