Carey Mulligan is looking lovely on the cover of Elle UK’s January 2011 issue, on newsstands Thursday (December 9).
Here’s what the 25-year-old Never Let Me Go actress had to share:
On feeling sexy: “‘I’ve never felt like a sexy person… I’ve always felt like a sensible person. I’ve always felt absurd wearing anything revealing.”
On being encouraged to have Botox: “So I can’t move my face? Isn’t that the antithesis of what I’m trying to do as an actress? Only in LA would someone try and give you Botox when you’re 25 years old.”
On body image: “I’m not trying to sell myself as a visual. I’m selling my willingness to play a part really well. If your body doesn’t look normal, how can you convey normal people, how can you be relatable?”
On ex Shia LaBeouf: “I always wanted to work with him, above and beyond anything else, because I thought he was so amazing in A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.”
