This photo of Cara Delevingne being eaten by a tree is giving us "Lord of the Rings" flashbacks
It may have been 15 years since the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, but Cara Delevingne is bringing it back in a big way. The model and actress took to Instagram yesterday to share a photo of herself looking like a tree is eating her. The always witty Delevingne paired it with the caption “This is what I like to do in my spare time.”
Check it out, flailing arms and all.
The picture couldn’t help but remind us of when the hobbits Merry and Pippin get into an argument about who’s taller during The Two Towers. Before you ask, YES, we mean the extended edition version, and NO, we aren’t ashamed by being nerds.
What starts as a typical disagreement soon goes awry when an evil hungry tree comes to life and sucks them into its roots. While at first it looks like that’s the end for the duo, the friendly ent Treebeard appears to save them from its grips before being chomped to death.
Here’s the clip, to help jog your memory.
Luckily it looks like Delevingne was able to escape unscathed, which is good since she has quite a bit on her plate at the moment.
In addition to walking the Met Gala red carpet in an amazing bedazzled pantsuit earlier this month, she’s in the middle of filming Life in a Year. In the upcoming film, she plays a cancer patient alongside Jaden Smith, the impetus for her shaved head. She also appeared at the MTV Movie and TV Awards last week. In case you missed it she was rocking a fierce head tattoo. It totally channeled vibes from her upcoming dystopian film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
That said, she doesn’t really have time for trees to attack her. Though this is inspiring us to revisit The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
