Carey Mulligan: Nude 'Shame' Scene Was Liberating

Carey Mulligan: Nude 'Shame' Scene Was Liberating

Carey Mulligan flashes her engagement ring while leaving Chateau Marmont on Friday (January 6) in Los Angeles.

The 26-year-old actress is engaged to Mumford & Sons singer Marcus Mumford.

Carey recently sat down with the NY Times to discuss her role – and nude scene – in Shame, Steve McQueen‘s flick about a sex addict, portrayed by Michael Fassbender.

“I had days of walking around New York with Steve, just talking about films and how women’s bodies are portrayed in cinema, and the absurdity of the expectation of how you’re meant to look and as an actress how you’re meant to look,” she shared.

“Mentally, I was never against the idea. I knew [my character, Sissy] didn’t go to the gym and diet, she drank and ate, and so I had fun and didn’t worry about what I looked like,” she revealed. “And by the time we were filming I felt free. It was quite fun in a way because it was the perfect way to flaunt abandon, in that scene. It was kind of liberating.”

    Ok so…I want someone to confirm this to me and since this is justjared it attracts all kinds of people…
    I heard, well, I keep hearing this rumor that Carey along with Emma Stone and Emma Watson and someone else i’m forgetting…are, or have been having sex with that Weinstein (sp?) guy who apparently has sex with a lot of young starlets to further their careers.
    Is this true? I keep hearing it and also i’ve seen quite a few of them together and all of them seem to be connected to him in some way.
    Emma Stone just blew up over night which I find strange and a few other things I won’t mention here that leads me to believe these rumors are true or have some truth to them.
    Also kept wondering why people called Carey a whore…I hope these rumors aren’t true though.

  • Lisa

    Carey is soooooo A W E S O M E !

  • Female

    I love this girl a bit too much. And even if she were sleeping with Weinstein, I doubt she’d need it. An Education, a credible independent film, was her breakthrough. I’m sure she got several offers after that alone.

  • Single

    Getting the foot in the door is quite hard, though. I can see thousands of other girls in An Education besides Carey.

    I don’t know about Emma Stone. She could be blowing up because she is the only young actress in Hollywood who is genuinely funny and not trying to be the next Audrey Hepburn?

    Emma Watson has been hanging around with Weinstein a lot this year, going to clubs, parties, Weinstein company after parties. She isn’t particularly talent either. Didn’t he get her on board the movie My Week with Marilyn? How did they meet, first of all?

    Michelle WIlliams being another girl who might be sleeping with him. She’s already going to get an Oscar nomination for a role with Weinstein’s movie and she got one last year in Blue Valentine, also a Weinstein movie. She was nude in that movie, can imagine her giving a private show for Weinstein. What does it hurt, right, when the whole world will see her nude, too.

  • uph..

    She always looks like such a sour puss..

  • Female

    @Single: Of course thousands of actresses could’ve played her role. Getting your big break is all about luck. That’s like saying thousands of actresses could have played any of Meryl Streep’s filmography.

  • Female

    @Single: As for Michelle, again, if she were sleeping with him, she probably wouldn’t need it. She has been getting on fine for the past seven years, nabbing credible independent projects like Synecdoche, New York, Wendy & Lucy and I’m Not There.

    Oh, and by the way, has Mulligan ever even starred in a Weinstein produced film, anyway? Why would she be sleeping with him? Emma Watson is debatable.

  • ha ha

    the casting couch is as old as Hollywood itself, even the guy actors suck c ock to get their breaks too,old news

  • BEAN

    Im really excited for this movie!

  • sdf

    Weinstein is a pig. There’s no money or fame worth selling yourself to that man. I judge every actress that allows that man to use them. Yuck.

  • Frozoid

    She’s engaged? Man, she moves fast. She’s only 26. Marriage won’t last.

    As for Weinstein, he married younger and gorgeous Georgina Chapman, who was not an actress but extremely ambitious. He really is repulsive- people believe she married him to further her career.

    So it’s quite possible that actresses who are ambitious would gravitate to him. But my god, he’s so repulsive!

  • Fox mulder

    @Frozoid: Only 26? Why is it in America when someone is in their 20s they’re not considered adults? It’s not even 21. 26 is no spring chicken!

  • Morgan

    Tried watching An Education and found extremely boring.

  • Female

    @Frozoid: Georgina Chapman is the co-founder of the godawful fashion brand Marchesa. A lot of actresses who have starred in Weinstein-produced seem to wear his clothes such as Penelope Cruz and Renee Zellweger. Let’s hope Michelle Williams doesn’t fall into that trap.

  • Anna

    There are a lot of these stories circulating around hollywood. Both major female and male stars.

    But Carey was so lovely with Ryan Gosling in Drive. She was amazing in Shame as well. She surely has the talent!

  • A

    @Female: To get vanity fair covers, Vogue etc.
    More exposure, more roles etc
    There are many reasons why someone would go that route…Remember Gretchen Mol? Carey Mulligan wanted to break into the business so bad, she was very very eager to get more parts and she still i, even begged that one producer/director to get a role she wasn’t suited for at first.
    She has talent for sure but so do a lot of actresses out there so…

  • A

    @Single: Yeah, Emma Watson was seen leaving The Box in London with him…she and another girl left with him to go to another after party or something. He is so sleazy looking.

  • A

    @Single: I have seen Emma Stone with him too and remember when she did movie after movie after movie, had like 10 movies in production. I’ve never seen a young actress blow up like that over night. Got cover after cover…leading roles… I’m not saying she is completely talentless but yet again, it’s suspect how she gained fame so quickly…I think she is for sure one of Weinsteins girls, he has many in his stall.

  • ha ha

    that harvey w. reminds me of that pig in TGWTDT, but he doesn’t FORCE, that s hit would get out. Prob a big perv, likes to tie girls up like that! And tells the girls to be more “sociable”, lol!

  • marchesa

    marchesa is co founder by Weinsteins wife she might done that to get celebs to wear clothes (which some i like really like) carey never done a film with him that i know of emma might want to be in his film or wear her clothes (not that she need to beg) and emma stone is one for few actress in her age range that does funny fims to (most do dramas) plus she had red hair when no one esle did emma waston doesn’t need money she doesn’t need to work agian money still comes in from harry potter and will for the rest of her life carey might used shia to get fame but she already got oscar buzz an education whitch came out long before she met him

  • FFer

    A, at 2:43 pm: Last night I was looking at cfake pix at 2:43 am when I heard a calm clear voice say “That is correct.”
    However, I suspect that He was speaking metaphorically. Since Weinstein is a fat Jew who worships the new 666 beast.

  • laura

    @Female: in their defense, Marchesa makes beutiful night gowns that are very red carpet-y though and it’s very feminine and girly and I’ve never seen a miss (not counting the disaster Blake Lively wore to the GG 100th episode party)

  • laura

    @A: I’ve always thought there was something suspiciuos about Emma Stone, I mean, she’s not a good actress, she’s charming, yes, and she does great in SNL but you can tell she’s acting when she’s on screen, she’s not believeable and that could be because of her big mouth and the way she uses it but it’s strange because she’s not supertalented she’s just charming and charming doesn’t give you the roles she’s been getting… The Help? She would have never gotten that role with “talent” alone. There’s no way.
    Emma Watson is not what people think she is… I was an extra in the Perks movie and she’s a MAJOR biiiiitch, she’s no sweet and I started googling to see if my impression of her was wrong and I found this blog… and honestly, it wouldn’t surprise me if she slept with him because she’s quiet desperate to have a big career after Potter.
    Blake Lively. Everyone knows that she is playing with that though.
    I wouldn’t include Michelle Williams into that list because she was an stablished actress before these two past great years she’s had. Maybe HE is interested but she doesn’t seem the type that will that get into her life and the movies she’s been doing are all indies so she doesn’t want to be extremely known, just a good actress :)

  • Stacie

    Okay so completely off subject but I’m totally in love with Carey ‘s co-star Michael Fassbender. He’s so Beautiful and so swoon worthy.

  • Marie

    Personally I like Emma Stone more than Emma Watson, I don’t really like Watson. It’s okay if you don’t like her as Sam, maybe there are more People, but one of my Friend’s don’t really want her as Sam either, but she still likes her, even though she is not at Emma’s Fanbase and I just don’t care about her and I’m leaving her alone. That is calling Respect. You need to respect People, even you don’t like them. There is no need to spread such Rumours now, she didn’t do anything to you @Laura

  • Me

    Love Carey Mulligan. She looks great and I wish her the best with her engagement. I also LOVE Emma Watson. She’s a fantastic role model and all the random hate for her going on in this thread is so pathetic that it’s laughable. I’m actually laughing right now. lmao.

  • I read many comments of various extras from Perks and they all said that Emma Watson was really nice, some even with pictures… The same for the fans who met her.

    Emma Watson already has enough money. Also, I don’t think she’s the type who would do anything to have a successful career. If this were a priority for her, I doubt she would be studying at Oxford now.

    I don’t think any of them need it. They are all beautiful and talented women, I see no reason or evidence to justify this kind of Defamation.
