Carey is currently attending/has attended the 82nd Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon today (February 15), looking lovely with some brand new blonde hair! Pictures will be added as they appear. Also, check out the gallery as a lot of new pictures/screencaps have been added there, including Carey’s appearances on Good Day L.A (Feb 11), USA Today, and Entertainment Weekly, as well as some more photoshoots – 1, 2 and 3! Enjoy!
British ingénue Carey Mulligan has the throaty, sexy voice of a woman twice her age with poise and sophistication to match. Yet, as she peppers her musings on fame and fright with unconscious speech fillers — “kind of,” “like,” “sort of” — one is reminded that she is, indeed, an ’80s baby.
“I’d seen Wall Street when I was, like, 12 years old. It was made (around) the year I was born, so obviously I didn’t catch it when it first came out,” the actress, 24, quips while discussing her highly anticipated Oliver Stone collaboration, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
“The premieres are scary. Golden Globes was nerve-racking, but slightly less so. … The red carpet for (awards shows) aren’t as exposing as the red carpet for the premieres because there’s so many people and there’s someone more famous coming up behind you,” she says. “You don’t feel on show for very long before they go, ‘Oh my God — there’s Clooney!’ and then suddenly, you’re gone. … It’s only when you have to stand in front of the cameras for, like, five minutes that it starts getting galling. It’s mainly the cameras that freak me out.”
Mulligan plans to take her parents as her dates for the Oscars on March 7, which is not surprising, considering her mother has accompanied the star, who says she spent the Sundance screening of Education with “my head shoved up (my agent’s) armpit,” to several awards shows already. Mulligan picked up the best-actress award from the National Board of Review and has racked up nominations from BAFTA, the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards.
Mulligan hopes to return to theater — which she calls “all-consuming” and “addictive” — at some point next year. Between now and then, though, she’ll have to get used to being one of Hollywood’s “it” girls, which means more nerve-racking moments on the red carpet.
“It’s not a natural thing to stand on the red carpet in a pair of shoes that you would never ordinarily wear, and a dress that you would never ordinarily wear, and have a hundred people take your picture. It’s this horrible feeling that it’s self-promotion. You feel so awful that you’re trying to be some big deal.”
Last night (Feb 07), Carey, along with Saoirse Ronan, Emily Blunt and Michael Stuhlbarg were the receprients at the 2010 Virtuoso Awards as part of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Pictures are being added to the gallery asap – and I must note how much I love Carey’s dress, it’s different and beautiful
First off: Congratulations Carey for her Oscar nomination! As previously mentioned, Carey was at Newsweek’s 13th Oscar Roundtable. You can read the transcript of it here and watch the videos of the discussions here.
All the actors in attendance were part of a photo shoot and pictures have been added to the gallery.
Jenny is 16, going on 17. But unlike Liesl, the milquetoast maiden in The Sound of Music, Jenny is one of those wry, dauntingly eloquent sixth-form English girls who seem to have emerged from the womb jaded by life. It’s this projected worldliness, as much as Jenny’s gamine prettiness, that attracts the attention of David (Peter Sarsgaard), an older suitor of sketchy background and considerable charm. Mulligan, 21 at the time of An Education’s filming, gets Jenny just right: one minute she’s a seen-it-all old pro who issues a cutting appraisal of her teacher; the next she’s a moony naïf who’s surrendered her senses to romance. Scherfig, the movie’s Danish director, has come a long way from the austere Dogme 95 principles of her breakthrough film, Italian for Beginners (2000). It’s Britain just before the Beatles, and she positively nails it: the bright, costumey colors of David’s louche café world and the pale, flecked wallpaper that imprisons Jenny’s dowdy parents.

The first outtake of the photoshoot for the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood Edition has been released and added to our gallery. You can view a behind the scenes video of the shoot under the cut. Captures will be added soon!
Carey Mulligan’s first movie role was as Keira Knightley’s giddy sister in Pride and Prejudice. A moment later, the former Catholic-boarding-school student was the buzz of Sundance, thanks to her exquisite performance as a 1960s English high-school senior in An Education. Big-league directors haven’t wasted any time in filling up the 24-year-old’s dance card. Mark Romanek chose her as the lead in Never Let Me Go, while Oliver Stone cast her in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, as the daughter of Gordon Gekko and the fiancée of trader Shia LaBeouf—who also happens to be her real-life love.
Last night Carey attended the 62nd Annual Directors Guild Of America Awards, looking beautiful as always! Nearly 50 images have already been added, with hopefully more on the way! I have also found a beautiful new still of Carey from “The Greatest”; check that out here.
May I also welcome the newest member of Team Carey, Annika, who I’m sure you’ll be hearing plenty from very soon Finally, you can now also access this site from http://carey-mulligan.org – Yay!
