Carey Mulligan Covers 'W' January 2012
Here’s what the 26-year-old British actress had to share with the mag:
On Shame‘s full-frontal nude scene: “I’ve never been comfortable with the idea of nudity. I’ve done only semi-nude, very innocent things in the past, and I’ve always been of the quite British mind-set that I won’t do gratuitous nudity … I thought I had a week before the nude scene to go to the gym, but we shot it on my first day of filming.”
On being theatrical as a child: “I would put my earphones on and sing along to soundtracks of musicals like Les Misérables. I’d act it out in the mirror and cry. When I was 11 or 12, I asked my parents about going to a performing arts school, and they said no. Although I did audition to be a presenter on a TV show called Dig It.”
