Carey Mulligan is now our new favorite actress after she revealed that getting naked on screen was something that helped her out as a person.
The Great Gatsby actress Carey Mulligan has revealed that getting naked on screen has helped her deal with her body issues.
Mulligan, who appeared nude in Michael Fassbender movie Shame, spoke about how filming nude scenes helped her overcome her “prudishness.”
“In my own life I’m very prudish about my body, or at least I have been in the past. I’m always covering myself up rather than wearing skimpy outfits. I don’t look good in very short skirts – at least I don’t think so. I’m often terrified about different aspects of characters I’m playing.”
Speaking about Shame, Mulligan added: “With respect to nudity, it was vital to the character in Shame, who wasn’t supposed to be a very attractive character and needed to be emotionally naked and lost in different ways. This is who she is – a character who can stand fully naked in front of her brother and not feel anything.”
See there, other actresses? This getting nude on camera is a good thing! It makes you break down those nasty walls of fear. Are you listening, Jessica Alba?
