Carey Mulligan Covers 'Interview' Magazine April 2010
Here’s what the 24-year-old actress had to share with Susan Sarandon, who interviewed her:
On learning how to drive: “Basically, every time I wasn’t doing press for An Education, I was taking a driving lesson, so I just got my license. I drove around for about two weeks before I came home to London for the BAFTAs, but I can drive now, which makes everything easier.”
On why she loves theater: “One of the things I love about the theater is that no one can tell you to stop. Once you’re onstage, it’s three hours, and whether you’re completely off or you’re just horrendous, you’ve got to find a way to leave an impression. There’s not that terrible thing that you get when you’re making a movie, where you get in your car at the end of the day knowing that something you’re not proud of was immortalized on film, and you can’t fix it because they won’t reshoot it. And, you know, you can come back and watch what you did and realize it was completely fine and you just built it up in your head, but otherwise that moment is on film forever and ever.”
