CAREY MULLIGAN IN MAY 2013 ISSUE OF “VOGUE” | “THE GREAT GATSBY”
It’s hard to believe that in about a month’s time Baz Luhrmann‘s long-awaited The Great Gatsby 3-D finally will hit theatres! Carey Mulligan who stars as Daisy Buchanan in the F. Scott Fitzgerald Adaptation graces the cover of Vogue in May and delves right into her experience on the Film with Tom Shone, with Photographs by none other than Mario Testino. We learn all about the moment she received news of being cast while at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards.
“‘I was trying to be cool, but oh, it was horrible,’ remembers Mulligan, who had been on tenterhooks for weeks. ‘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.’ After Mulligan left the stage, Catherine Martin handed her a cell phone, saying, ‘Somebody wants to speak to you.’ The next thing she heard was Luhrmann’s warm Australian drawl: ‘Hullo, Daisy. . . .‘
Before he could even get to Buchanan, Mulligan was sobbing into her napkin. ‘Sobbing,’ she recalls. ‘Everybody was like, What is wrong with her?’.”.
We learn also Mulligan despite appearing demure and sweet, actually has quite a wild side!
