November 18th, 2011 · Inside Llewyn Davis, Shame, The Great Gatsby

The NC-17 rated drama Shame follows Brandon (Michael Fassbender), a New Yorker who refuses intimacy with women while feeding his desires with a compulsive addiction to sex. When his younger sister, Sissy (Carey Mulligan), unexpectedly moves into his apartment, she stirs up memories of their shared painful past, and Brandon’s life begins to spiral further out of control.

During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Carey Mulligan talked about how devastated she would have been if she hadn’t gotten to play Sissy, that she never knew what co-star Michael Fassbender was going to do during their scenes, how unflinching and uncompromising director Steve McQueen is, and how sex addiction is a subject that should be discussed, but that this film is definitely not for children. She also talked about how extraordinary it is to be in The Great Gatsby and work with Leonardo DiCaprio and Baz Luhrmann, how the Coen brothers are her favorite filmmakers and that she can’t believe she gets to be one of their characters (in Inside Llewyn Davis), and that she couldn’t refuse the opportunity to work with Spike Jonze. Check out what she had to say after the jump:

How did you come to be a part of Shame? Did Steve McQueen approach you about the role, or was it something that you pursued?

CAREY MULLIGAN: Yeah, but he was meeting lots of people. They sent the script to my agents, and I asked if I could meet him. We met for breakfast and coffee, and I just said how much I wanted to do it. He didn’t ask me to audition, in the end, but I was 100% ready to go through the whole process and do anything I could to get the job. He gave me the job, a couple of hours later, and I was really surprised. I couldn’t believe he was going to give me the job because he really had no reason to. I read it and I was like, “That’s going to go to someone who’s sassy, and who’s known for doing something similar, and who’s sexy.” I was really surprised that he gave it to me. I was like, “Shit, what am I gonna do?!” I had no idea where to begin. The whole thing was quite surprising.

A gorgeous new trailer for Shame has just been released, and whilst watching it you can hear Carey sing ‘New York, New York’ as her character Sissy does in the film. At the moment it is only available to view via the Apple Trailers site, so click the image below to get taken to the video. I will add it to the archive as soon as I can download it. The trailer has now been added to the Video Archive – Enjoy!

November 10th, 2011 · Drive, News & Articles, Shame

Carey Mulligan found herself propelled onto the world stage after she was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of the sharp, witty and painfully young Jenny Mellor in 2009s “An Education.” Though doors began to open for the actress, she was disappointed to discover that most of them led to rooms of similar shapes and sizes. “A lot of people just wanted me to sort of do what I had already done,” she recalls. “Films that reminded me of that part weren’t films that I was interested in.”

If there is such a thing as a safe and secure course in the development of an ingénue’s career anymore, then Mulligan has chosen not to follow that trajectory. The actress took one leading, and several supporting roles (the most high-profile of which was in Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”) after “An Education” and then stopped working for a year.

When she returned it was in pursuit of projects that would move her beyond the limited scope of the classical leading lady and/or give her the opportunity to work with filmmakers that she found compelling. She began with director Nicolas Winding Refn’s urban fable/meditation on violence, “Drive.”

Carey Mulligan is on the cover of the November 18 issue of The Hollywood Reporter, as they kick off Oscar season with their annual roundtable series. In the first, Carey is joined by Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Glenn Close as they discuss their regrets, the mean things people say to them and why Davis hates it when a black actress’ performance is called “dignified.”

I have added the magazine cover to the gallery, and will try and get hold of scans as soon as I can. Check out a cute snippet from the interview below:

Brits call it “the half”: that 30-minute stretch before curtain when actors prep for a show. This ritual is the subject of Simon Annand’s photography anthology (“The Half”) documenting the makeup, cigarettes, and shabby glamor of British backstage life. The photo features Carey Mulligan as she preps for a 2007 performance of “The Seagull” at the Royal Court. (The photo’s wonderful schism between décor and costume is typical of “The Half.”)
