Back on Wednesday (January 17), Carey attended a “Collateral” Special Screening and Q&A at BFI Southbank in London. She was joined by co-star Nathaniel Martello-White (Nathan Bilk), S. J. Clarkson (Director), Sir David Hare (Writer) and Gaylene Gould (BFI Southbank’s Head of Cinemas and Events). High-quality images have been added to our gallery.

VOGUE AU — […] With Collateral, written by acclaimed playwright, screenwriter and director David Hare, she was just six weeks pregnant when she was offered the lead part of the detective. Yet Hare, who she had worked with on the revival of his theatre production of Skylight when she was pregnant with her first child, barely blinked. “I wrote to him and said: ‘You’ll never guess, but I’m pregnant again. So can I do it pregnant?’ He said: ‘I don’t see why not.’” What’s more, her changing physical state barely altered the plotline for her character. “I loved that he didn’t rewrite my character, that he just didn’t make a fuss about it. It felt more real to life, because when you’re pregnant you do just go about your life.

Mulligan would know: tomorrow she is packing up the whole family and flying to LA to begin the promo tour for Mudbound. “It’s the same as when I had my daughter,” she says of her busy schedule. “We started press for Suffragette like three weeks after I gave birth to my daughter, so you just get back into it and it’s fine, because it’s not like filming, where you need to use your brain all the time. It’s much more about kind of showing up.” On the Vogue cover shoot, she brought along her son when he was just two months, breastfeeding between shots. “We had a really fun time; it was mad,” she says of the photo shoot, which sees her decked out in dramatic haute couture dresses on a rooftop in New York. “I was putting on sunglasses and wearing these absolutely enormous, crazy gowns. I like shoots when you can sort of disappear into it all.

When Mulligan and I meet, it’s during the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein scandal; the subsequent #MeToo hashtag has been filling up everyone’s Twitter feed. Mulligan doesn’t do social media: “I was on Instagram, but I got rid of it, because I found myself just looking at other people’s babies,” she jokes, but like everyone else, she’s been caught up in the news cycle. “I mean it’s appalling, but I’m not surprised by a lot of the things coming out, which is a sad state of affairs, really.” Although she started out young, she says she feels like one of the lucky ones. “I know a lot of actresses, friends of mine, who have felt vulnerable, but I don’t think I ever have, in that sense.” She continues: “I have felt belittled and I think I’ve felt kind of lesser-than. I’ve definitely experienced sexism in terms of how I’ve been treated. When I’ve tried to assert my opinion on scripts, for example, I feel I’ve had to fight a bit harder to get my voice heard.” A self-professed theatre geek, Mulligan has been performing since the age of six and shakes her head at the suggestion that there was any other path she could have taken. “I never did any professional acting while I was at school, but acting was just my thing and I tried to do every extracurricular version of it,” she says, adding with a wry smile: “I was shit at sport. I mean, I was enthusiastic, but I was useless.

[…]

For her next act, Mulligan will return to the stage at London’s Royal Court in February for a five-week run of a new one-woman play by Dennis Kelly. This seems to me to be the final feather in her cap – the ultimate test for an actor to undertake, and she’s visibly excited by the opportunity. “It’s very rare to get a one-woman show: there’s more written for men and there aren’t that many written for women. I’ve only ever seen one, I think,” she says, happily. “I actually never thought it would come up.

The full line-up for Sundance Film Festival 2018 was announced yesterday, and Paul Dano’s “Wildlife” is set to have its world premiere as part of their U.S. Dramatic Competition. The film, starring both Carey and Jake Gyllenhaal, tells the story of a boy who witnesses his parent’s marriage falling apart after his mom finds another man. Along with the news of the line-up, the first production stills were released — you can now find them in our gallery.

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.”
