I’ve just updated our gallery with a lovely new photoshoot Carey realized for the Los Angeles Times last week. Be sure to check out part of the interview below, but the whole article can be found back at their website.
About not announcing her pregnancy publicly: “I didn’t want the [‘Skylight’] audience to know I was pregnant because it would affect the way they viewed my character, and I don’t want people to know about my marriage or my children because it will affect the way they see me in films,” said Mulligan, who turned 30 in May. “And they don’t need to know. There’s this idea that people need to know, but they don’t. I don’t want them to form an attachment to me or my personality or my family or my life, because that’s not healthy. Because they don’t know me.”
About An Education: “But I don’t think I enjoyed it, because I was terrified all the time,” she recalled. “There was a lot of being introduced to people, and people don’t want to meet you — it’s a weird thing. You just feel awkward all the time. I think I made myself have no fun with it, and it’s such a shame because I think I could have had a really good time if I’d gone, ‘This is fine. Just relax. This is a good thing’ instead of ‘Oh, God. I shouldn’t be here.'”
About Suffragette: “Making ‘Suffragette’ made me realize I don’t have to do either of those things. I can be a woman and be confident in my ideas, and I don’t have to play anyone. I’m an adult, and I can get my voice heard without having to manipulate the situation.”
