Carey Mulligan Covers 'Harper’s Bazaar' Women of the Year December Issue!

Carey Mulligan is stunning as she graces the December cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s 2014 Women of the Year issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 29-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On what acting means to her: “Acting’s what I started doing when I was six years old and at a certain point you realize you can do it for a living. And from then on I was like: “Well, I’ll do that then.” I wanted to do musical theatre. That was the dream. I still go to musical theatre and just cry. I love it so much.”

On being comfortable in her own skin as an actress: “I’m better at it now. I think it’s getting older. The first couple of jobs I did, I was like: ‘How did I land this? I hope they don’t fire me.’ Now I do that less. I have opinions.”

On other actresses she admires: “I constantly watch people like Marion Cotillard or Cate Blanchett or Kate Winslet. I have a fear of being passive and what I admire about all those actresses is that every choice they make is really strong. Even if they’re playing something very quiet, it’s visceral and bold.”

The full interview appears in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on sale now – Also available as a digital edition!

    Unattractive and can’t act. She was an embarrassment in that “Inside Llewellyn Davis.”

    She cannot act. Does the same dour expression and very nearly ruined Gatsby (thanks to Leo’s excellent acting, she didn’t). I hope she doesn’t ruin Madding Crowd, which has Matthias Schoenaerts in it; Matthias is like a Michelin restaurant next to Carey’s McDonald’s acting. She’s just an awfully, awfully overrated actress. I can’t think of anyone else there more overrated. Her career was built on pure hype.

    Kate Winslet is mediocre. Cate is excellent except when she overacts. Marion is reliable but Cate’s better than Marion.

    I saw Carey act with Bill Nighy onstage this year and she was incredible. I’m not easily convinced by hype (J-Law, et al) but this girl has IT. Her acting style is quite subtle and natural which may not translate to overblown productions like Gatsby but she carried off the big emotional moments too and held her own with Nighy. Her performance was critically rated plus she has that feminist film coming out that’s quite relevant to Harper’s Bazaar. She has been working with Alzheimer’s and war charities too so maybe that’s why they chose her.
