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.”
