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

Carey Mulligan had the task of modeling 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 costar 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 and even a cameo on Belle and Sebastian's new track "Write About Love." 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 realized 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 recognized 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 recognize 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.”
