Carey Mulligan Reveals Why She Doesn't Think She'll Do Theater Again Any Time Soon

Carey Mulligan is on the cover of the latest issue of PorterEdit, out now.

Here’s what the 33-year-old actress had to say…

On how it’s taken her years to make peace with red-carpet appearances and photo shoots: “I find it all much easier now. I took it all way too seriously when I was younger because I didn’t know any different. It all happened so quickly. I went to the premiere of Pride and Prejudice but there were 12 of us and no one took my photo on my own. Then An Education happened and suddenly it was awards season in LA, and I honestly had no idea what was going on. I was completely freaked out and so paranoid about everything, people judging me or saying [things] about me. It’s a shame, because it should’ve been really fun and it wasn’t.”

On whether she would ever do a blockbuster rom-com or superhero film: “I’m the first person in line to see Jurassic World. Literally. That’s exactly what I want to see, likewise Mamma Mia!, but I’ve never found a role in them that I want to do. More than anything in the world, though, I want to do an animated film. I’ve banged on about this for years and no one’s offered me a Pixar movie or anything like that. I want to put on a stupid voice and not have to wear makeup to work. What a dream.”

On why she doesn’t think she’ll be doing theater again any time soon: “[Doing theater] is great because you get all day with [the children], but you miss bath time every night, and putting your kids to bed is the best thing. I mean, it can be a total nightmare, but it’s also a lovely thing.”
