Carey Mulligan has been chosen as one of the eight actresses to take part in THR’s annual Actress Roundtable. She joined Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Jane Fonda, Brie Larson, Helen Mirren, Charlotte Rampling and Kate Winslet , 40, in a discussion that ranged from the pay gap between men and women to the other careers these actresses might have chosen to — yes — how to pee on film. The cover shoot has been added to the gallery, and jump below the cut for the transcript from the roundtable itself. The full Actress Roundtable will air on Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday, Jan 10, at 11 a.m. ET on Sundance TV.
I’ve just updated the gallery with screen captures of Carey Mulligan from her webseries “The Walker”, this time from episodes 1.6, 1.07 and 1.08. You can watch the full series of 8 episodes over at Refinery29’s YouTube channel.
The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 7th Annual Governors Awards took place in Hollywood yesterday, and Carey Mulligan attended, wearing a beautiful lemon-yellow Jonathan Saunders dress, Aquazarra shoes, a Tyler Alexandra clutch, and Anita Ko jewellery. The first small batch of high-quality images have just been added, with more on the way.
Equal rights for women may be prominent on the current news agenda, and, while much has improved in the past century, shocking disparities still remain.
To support the recent release of the movie “Suffragette”, the film’s distributor, Focus Features, is running a campaign to draw attention to the amount of work yet to be done. “Suffragette” follows the stories of British women who fought for the right to vote 100 years ago, and the aim of the campaign is to show that there are still terrible injustices occurring today.
The drive centers on a short film showing a series of girls aged between seven and 14, each holding two placards, one with the date 1915 on it and the other with 2015. Each recites a jarring gender equality-related statistic and is asked to choose which year she thinks the statistic is from. Examples include “Seventy-five million girls under 14 are child laborers,” “Women make up 70% of the population living on a dollar a day,” and “Sixty-two million girls don’t get to go to school.”
Suffragette star Carey Mulligan makes an appearance at the end of the video delivering a call to action for people to join the fight for equality by taking a photo of themselves holding up a sign with their hopes for the future. Another of the film’s stars, Meryl Streep, is also seen taking part. For every picture posted on Instagram using the hashtag, Focus Features will donate a dollar to the NGO Equality Now.
