Carey Mulligan channels her Great Gatsby character, Daisy Buchanan, for the cover of US Vogue’s May 2013 issue as photographed by Mario Testino and styled by Grace Coddington wearing Oscar de la Renta.
Inside Carey talks about working on The Great Gatsby, moving into her new London home with husband Marcus Mumford and her acting good fortune.
Her new London home with husband Marcus Mumford: “I still haven’t moved everything into my grown-up house. My mum and I were in my bedroom last night because that’s where all my stuff went when I got back from Sydney. We were tearing through, trying to find it [her Gatsby workbook]. I had Marcus check at home. I think I’ve lost it.”
On waiting to find out if she got the role: “I was trying to be cool, but oh, it was horrible. It was terrifying, the suspense. I was winding down on shooting Drive, so I wasn’t working that much, just waiting around for the phone to ring and for me to be disappointed.”
On filming The Great Gatsby: “It was crazy and exhausting and quite overwhelming, the biggest, craziest production I’ve ever been involved in.”
On her acting good fortune: “It’s unsettling that you get exactly what you wanted. Not like some version of it, not a slightly lesser version of it, but exactly. You’re like: This is weird. It is weird.”
