Thanks to the lovely Luciana, we have scans of Carey from the December 18 issue of TheWrap, where she discussed Inside Llewyn Davis and Far From the Madding Crowd. Enjoy!

Carey has appeared in Empire’s 100 Sexiest Movie Stars poll, coming in at #27. Here’s what they have to say about her:
#27 CAREY MULLIGAN
We may have spotted her in TV’s Bleak House or Trial & Retribution, or even as Kitty in Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice. But we can pinpoint the moment we all fell for Carey Mulligan thanks to two words: Sally Sparrow. Her appearance in the time-twisting Doctor Who episode Blink cemented her appeal, and she’s built from there with beautiful work in Public Enemies, Drive and The Great Gatsby.
An Education saw her Oscar nominated as defiant schoolgirl Jenny Mellor in a role that seemed made for her. But there’s also her troubled chanteuse in Shame…
STROKE OF CHARM
Joining Stephen Colbert’s book club. It’s Gif-tastic.
For Flaunt‘s Issue 127, The Fabrication Issue, we snagged oh-so-svelt actress Carey Mulligan, whose future releases include Inside Llewyn Davis and the much-anticipated The Great Gatsby. Check out photos by the talented Stevie & Mada, and look for the complete feature—an experimental profile of the actress as told by a fictional childhood friend—when the magazine hits newsstands next week.
English actress Carey Mulligan graces the cover of Bazaar’s June issue in an ethereal cover shoot featuring Prada, Erdem and Bottega Veneta. She met with Ajesh Patalay to talk about life as Mrs Mumford, working with Leonardo di Caprio and those persistent pregnancy rumours. Below, Ajesh shares five behind-the-scenes things about Carey that you may not know.
CAREY’S ACTING HEROES…
…are Daniel Day Lewis and Cate Blanchet.
When she was at Woldingham, her girls boarding school in Surrey, she played John Proctor in the school production of The Crucible (the part played by Daniel Day Lewis in the film version). She met the actor at the British Independent Film Awards a few years ago. “He wrote me this beautiful handwritten note a couple of weeks afterwards just saying how nice it was to meet me and that he’d like An Education. His penmanship was beautiful. The note was the most beautiful thing. If my house was burning down I would save that. It is so precious.”
“When I was about 14 years old at school we had a copy in our rec room of Elisabeth starring Cate Blanchett and we just watched it over and over again. Then I met Cate in Sydney because she had worked with my co-star Joel Edgerton [who plays Tom Buchanan in Gatsby]. They had done A Streetcar Named Desire together, so we all went round to her house for lunch. She was so wonderful. She lived up to my expectations.”
CAREY’S MUSIC TO DANCE TO…
…She used to listen to LMFAO Party Rock Anthem on the set of The Great Gatsby. “That’s what we used to dance to. It’s also the song that made me laugh hysterically and there were lots of times when I needed to go into a scene with that kind of energy.”
THE LAST BIG GIG CAREY WENT TO (other than one of her husband’s)…
“… was the Take That Reunion at the O2 with friends when I was 21 or 22! I was a huge Take That fan when I was younger. I never went to cool Notting Hill dives. I don’t really know what to do with my hands at gigs.”
CAREY’S MIXED-CD SPECIAL…
… is for her grandmother who suffers from severe Alzheimer’s (Carey is an ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society). “I make [her] mix-tape CDs of different music. Music is something she responds to. She used to sing along. Now she just taps along, which is an amazing indication of the things the brain retains. She really responds to male voice choirs and she loves Bryn Terfel.”
The Great Gatsby opens on both sides of the Atlantic on 10th May 2013.
With The Great Gatsby just around the corner, Carey’s started to appear on the cover of a few magazines, including US Vogue and Interview Russia, and I have added both covers to the gallery. Scans will be added as soon as I can find them.
