Carey is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK (January ’18 Issue), and she looks absolutely breathtaking. I truly believe this is one of her most beautiful shoot ever. I have updated our gallery with high-quality digital scans, as well as with several outtakes. Enjoy!


On her fears since having children: “[I’ll] have a huge mortality crisis and get terribly upset that one day [I’ll have to] leave my children behind. That has crippled me a couple of times since I’ve had kids: the notion that one day they’ll have to be without me.”

On the time when her breastmilk leaked over her couture dress at a fashion event: “Back in the day, I would have been in the bathroom in tears. I would have been trying to leave. But it was just kind of funny. It was so ridiculous. I thought, ‘If I’ve got breastmilk coming out of my dress, then that just shows what it’s like to be a working mother in the 21st century. Whatever.”

On whether giving birth has changed the way she feels about her body: “Yes, I think all that stuff has got easier. Your body has a totally different function. I’ve always been funny about my legs and I won’t wear anything above the knee. I hate my thighs.”

On wanting to be everything for your children: “I used to talk down about myself a lot… you know, ‘Ugh, I feel so gross today, I feel so fat today. I look ugly today.’ And I just don’t do that any more because I don’t want my children to feel or talk about themselves that way.”

While filming Mudbound, Carey was shocked to hear rumours of a real-life lynching taking place in Atlanta: “It was so crazy because, you know, that feels historical and it wasn’t. I think because I live in London, I suppose I have an idea that we’re all very multicultural and everyone is very accepting and I had no idea the extent to which racism is still rampant in America… I was naïve to how bad it is still today.”

C Magazine — A few months after giving birth to her second child, Carey Mulligan calls from London to talk about—well, what are we talking about? It’s late at night and her child is stirring and she’s lost her train of thought and suddenly she’s telling me I should watch Designated Survivor. The TV show, I say? “Yes,” she says. “Where everyone gets killed and suddenly Kiefer Sutherland is the president. It’s amazing.

This is not the first or last surprising tangent she’ll take in a wide-ranging and often very funny conversation in which she reveals she is wary of so-called “important” Oscar films, praises pro wrestler John Cena’s work in the comedy Trainwreck, and swears by clothing from The Row. When asked what her next film gets right about marriage, she says, jokingly: “Whew…struggle. The struggle is real.
It’s exactly the kind of thing you’d expect any parent with two tiny kids to say. And, for the record, Mulligan and her husband, Marcus Mumford, the lead singer of the wildly successful band Mumford & Sons, seem very happily married. It’s just that Mulligan has spent the last decade keeping the public at arm’s length, so even the tiniest hint of her home life feels like a revelation. […] Mulligan, 32, may not be chronicling her daily life publicly, but she’s definitely been thinking about the ride. Next year’s indie film Wildlife, co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal, is partly about infidelity, and the project spoke to her in surprising ways. “[The film] is less about their marriage and more about that moment in her life, that feeling of inertia. Like, she’s suddenly woken up in her 30s with a 14-year-old son and this marriage, and she can’t get a hold of where her life has gone.” She clarifies, speaking personally: “I’m very, very lucky. But I do sometimes go, ‘How am I 32 and I have two children and I’m married and I have a house?’

[…]

When she received the script for November’s Mudbound, which is in theaters and on Netflix—and may bring Mulligan and the streaming giant to the Oscar party—she was traveling in South Africa. The project, based on Hillary Jordan’s 2008 novel, tells the story of two families in rural Mississippi struggling to survive post-World War II in the South, and it tackles subjects like post-traumatic stress disorder, racism and women’s rights with an unflinching lens. It was also the exact opposite of what Mulligan hoped to do next. She was tired of period pieces, tired of corsets, and desperate to do something contemporary, once joking: “I wanted to hold a gun.
What changed her mind—what made her willing to relocate to New Orleans at the height of a steamy-hot summer with an 8-month-old baby in tow—was simply the chance to work with Dee Rees, a female director she’d admired out of Sundance, with a strong cinematic vision and a down-and-dirty shooting style. On Mudbound, the actors would have small, shared trailers that were miles away from set and mostly went unused as they sizzled in the blazing sun beset by mosquitoes. “We couldn’t retreat and go off into our own worlds and check our phones,” the actress says. “We were on this mad adventure. I’ve never been on a film where a snake wrangler was required to stop us from getting bitten. I like the pace of that filmmaking. I can’t bear sitting around and waiting.

Our girl attended the Opening Gala of the AFI FEST 2017 Presented By Audi yesterday (November 9) in Hollywood, California, which opened with a “Mudbound” Screening. The screening was followed with the Audi Atmosphere at AFI Festival & Hosted Dinner, which Carey attended with her co-stars (Mary J. Blige, Garrett Hedlund…) and their director, Dee Rees. She was also photographed by Michael Buckner for Variety Portrait Studio during the Gala — what a night!

Carey was wearing Preen by Thronton Bregazzi Spring 2018 RTW and looked absolutely stunning, as per usual. High-quality images have been added too our gallery.
