Carey Mulligan Covers 'W' January 2012

Carey Mulligan Covers 'W' January 2012

Carey Mulligan rocks a Nina Ricci jacket and cotton bra on the cover of W‘s January issue.

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.”

    That’s not beauty, that’s photoshop. Disgusting what they did to her. No wonder why their are so many insecure people in the world.

    Not bitter people. Just moronic people who favour generic people like Cheryl Troll and Megan Fox.

    I can’t believe she auditioned for Dig It!

  • mel

    Did she mention Les Mis on purpose? Like, does she want a part on the movie? Thanks Goodness she will be shooting a movie with the Coen brothers and stay away from Les Mis

  • huh ok

    i did not know it was particularly british to not do gratuitous nudity.
    as if other nationalities are keen to it?
    ok.

  • Alaia

    @mel: Well to me, the Coen Brothers project sounds better, anyway.
