Mormon Mothers Love Suki Waterhouse
Who has Suki Waterhouse got her eye on? The Mormon mothers who follow her on Twitter, a few Desperate Housewives, and our very own editor in chief, according to the London-born model and musician herself. Waterhouse, who is releasing her debut studio album, I Can’t Let Go, this Friday, is currently gearing up to join her label-mate Father John Misty this summer on his North American tour. All eyes are on Waterhouse—but that’s something that the veteran it-girl is more than accustomed to. Below, we asked Waterhouse a few questions about her own stalking habits, her guilty television pleasures, and her preferred methods for getting our attention.
INTERVIEW: What did you watch last night?
SUKI WATERHOUSE: I just discovered the reality TV show Pretty Wild with the girl from the Bling Ring. But I fell asleep watching a video of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis in their kitchen with Vitalik Buterin which was weirdly enthralling.
INTERVIEW: How do you watch?
WATERHOUSE: Triple chinned!
INTERVIEW: Who are you watching?
INTERVIEW: Who watches you?
WATERHOUSE: Mormon mothers on Twitter.
INTERVIEW: Who do you stalk?
INTERVIEW: How do you get attention?
WATERHOUSE: Eating with my fingers.
INTERVIEW: What do you do when no one’s watching?
WATERHOUSE: Manically search for clothes I can’t find. I’m addicted to the sense of loss and joy that comes when my bucket hat is lost and found again. A bliss washes over me and I feel complete.
INTERVIEW: What movie do you know by heart?
WATERHOUSE: Sex Lies and Videotape.
INTERVIEW: Which show do you watch the most?
WATERHOUSE: Desperate Housewives..
INTERVIEW: Where do you keep your dirty videos?
WATERHOUSE: I don’t regard any of them as ‘dirty.’
INTERVIEW: Are you a voyeur?
WATERHOUSE: I’m an oral voyeur. I like knowing secrets. I think they teach me a lot about the world and myself in how you keep or don’t keep them.
INTERVIEW: Do you get shy on camera?
WATERHOUSE: Yeah, if I don’t like the lighting! Shy and upset.
INTERVIEW: What do you hate-watch?
INTERVIEW: Do you watch the news?
WATERHOUSE: I watch BBC news for a peek of the House of Lords debates. I’m there for the wigs. English politicians have that private-school-boy buffoonery that is always entertaining.
INTERVIEW: Do you like being watched?
WATERHOUSE: Yes. More so in private than publicly.
INTERVIEW: Do you watch what you eat?
WATERHOUSE: Yeah but not like crazy. I’m a lot less dysmorphic than I used to be.
INTERVIEW: What’s the best movie theater?
WATERHOUSE: I only really go to the AMC on Sunset.
INTERVIEW: What’s the best streaming service?
WATERHOUSE: The Discovery Channel.
INTERVIEW: What’s your favorite channel?
WATERHOUSE: Oxygen TV for trashy American murders.
INTERVIEW: Do you ever feel like you’re being surveilled?
WATERHOUSE: Yeah, but I wish it had more of an impact on me. If it forced me to leave the house always looking fabulous, that would be great.
INTERVIEW: Who do you love?
WATERHOUSE: My funny boyfriend.
INTERVIEW: Who do you follow?
WATERHOUSE: Julia Hobbs, Evan Ross Katz, Mel, Jeremy O. Harris.
INTERVIEW: When was the last time you lied?
WATERHOUSE: I told my makeup artist I liked the look.
INTERVIEW: What’s the last thing you got in trouble for?
WATERHOUSE: I woke up with a laptop cord around my neck, which was more of a troubling situation than an in-trouble situation. I try to avoid getting in trouble at all these days.
