“Suicide Squad” star Cara Delevingne thinks “superhero movies are totally sexist.”

The model and actress, who will next be seen on the big screen alongside Nat Wolff in the John Green novel adaptation “Paper Towns,” told Empire she thinks the skimpy outfits female crime fighters wear aren’t very practical.

“Generally though, superhero movies are totally sexist. Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis,” Delevingne said. “No one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute.”

So why is she starring in one of the most anticipated superhero movies of 2016?

“There are only three girls in [Suicide Squad], but in my opinion they have the best roles,” she said.

Delevingne will play magical DC supervillain Enchantress alongside Margot Robbie as Joker sidekick Harley Quinn, and Viola Davis as government agent Amanda Waller.

Director David Ayer‘s “Suicide Squad,” which also stars Jared Leto, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Scott Eastwood and Ben Affleck, will hit theaters on Aug. 5 of next year.
