Carey Mulligan on the October Cover of Vogue US

Carey Mulligan Is Famous Enough For Vogue, but Not Yet Glee

Carey Mulligan had the task of modelling dozens of couture looks at the shoot for her cover of October's Vogue. The Money Never Sleeps actress spoke to the magazine about her romance with her co-star in the film, Shia LaBeouf, also touching on how she deals with fame and revealing a fondness for Glee. Carey found time to open up to the magazine despite her busy schedule, which includes an upcoming action film with Ryan Gosling. Carey said:

  • On attending events with Shia LaBeouf: "Posing on the red carpet feels like you’re selling something that has nothing to do with you. If you do it with someone else, it’s like we’re saying, ‘Oh! We come as a pair! Would you like to buy both of us? We’re available for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs!”
  • On her fame: "I want to be in Glee, but I’m told I’m not famous enough to be a cameo yet.”
  • On her fitness routine: "I don’t want to look like an actress; I want to look like a person. Normal people don’t go to the gym six times a week . . .The thinnest I’ve ever been was after I had my appendix out, during the London run of The Seagull. I went down to 112 pounds and realised my brain doesn’t work when I’m that thin, so I can’t do my job. That’s why, when I came out here, I never had that whole Hollywood pressure thing. I never said I wanted to be a lead actress; I never said I wanted to be a film actress. This need to trump everyone bewilders me. I’m only 25. I’m not better than anyone. I just want to watch other people and learn to be good.”
  • On being recognised by fans: "I don’t want to be ‘known’—I’m afraid of being a ‘personality.’ On a talk show, I feel I should just hold up a sign with the facts on it—and leave. It wouldn’t take more than a minute, and they’d have room for other guests. I want people to not recognise me, to think I’m a different actress, not remember me from what I did previously. If people have all those other pictures and stories associated with you, it’s added shit that means they have to work harder to believe you as a character.”

Way to attack her on her looks, as if that is the only thing that makes a good actress. Carey is lovely and talented and brilliant. She doesn't need to thrust herself in the spotlight 24/7, and I doubt that people don't recognize her anymore, given that her relationship with Shia Labeouf has killed any sense of anonymity that she might have hoped for.

don't know if she is a snob or not but she sounds refreshing. never thought she was pretty. she reminds me of martha plimpton. good actress but kind of homely. these pics make her look very attractive. glad her hair is growing out. think she looks better with longer hair and as a brunette...

From what i've heard she got talent, but unfortunately unless you are flashing tits and a** 24/7, most people won't know you.

Odd attitude given that the business is so competitive for the talent. She's doing a good job if she doesn't want to be known.

I am not surprised they won't let her cameo on Glee. She's becoming a known actress and is fashionable, but she's no household name. Guarantee no one in my family would know who she was if I said her name or showed them her photo. If I didn't read this site, I wouldn't know who she was. This doesn't surprise me whatsoever.
