Carey Mulligan Talks About Shia LaBeouf, losing weight and cutting her hair in 2011 January Elle UK

Carey Mulligan Shares on Shia and Her Short Hair in Elle UK

Carey Mulligan scored the cover of Elle UK's January 2011 issue, which is on newsstands now! The actress has been busy wrapping up the current year with award shows in both the US and the UK, but she found a minute to break from the jet-setting to chat about her short hair, her ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf, and the pressure to be beautiful in Hollywood. Carey said:

  • On meeting Shia: "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 . . . I don't want to meet all these amazing people, that's not the thrill — I want to work with them."
  • On her short hair: "I hate my hair. After An Education, I had a small part in Michael Mann's film Public Enemies, and he wanted me to dye it white blonde and it wrecked my hair. Literally, ruined it. It was falling apart, fried. So I had to cut it off. I cried."
  • On having to lose weight for a role: "Weetabix for breakfast, soup for lunch and salad for dinner. 'No, I will not have that glass of wine! Put that pizza away!' It was not fun. I look back and it's really, really not worth depriving yourself. I was very thin at the beginning of An Education and I remember the scene where I'm dancing and you can see my spine. Yuck. I would never want to be so thin that someone would think it was a good idea to be thin, and make themselves miserable. I know this sounds wanky, but I would never want to set a bad example, basically."

To see what Carey says about spending a day with Warren Beatty, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, just keep reading.

  • On meeting Warren Beatty: "Walking along the beach at Malibu, with him telling me crazy stories about Marilyn Monroe and Natalie Wood. Once you meet him your entire day is Warren. The first time we met I was really nervous, but we hung out for seven hours. He's fascinating. He's been part of this world since before it was celebrity obsessed, since 'famous' had a different meaning . . . It's very equal. He doesn't treat me like a young person."
  • On being competitive: "I'll be in agony when I watch The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo . . . I auditioned for it, but I didn't get the part."

I don't know why but she just seems so matronly and homely...looks way older than 25, she is a good actress but just not appealing. IMO

i love her...she's adorable and so honest. i think what she is trying to say is basically to be happy and comfortable with yourself....she doesn't want to be a twig w/ a frozen face wearing skimpy clothes. that's not her. which is why she's refreshing! loved what she said about losing the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo....

I like her hair cut! I love short hair! I which I could pull it of. Anyways, I think that she is highly talented and seems highly down-to-earth.

There probably are a lot of women that don't care about men's approval but there is nothing wrong with being confident in your sex appeal either. I didn't read anything in that interview that suggests she doesn't care to be sexually attractive to men. Revealing attire is just not her thing apparently which is fine. She's still cute and does take care to dress elegantly and sophisticated. Many men would find that appealing. I hate her hair too.
