Carey Mulligan Talks Drunk Cell Phone Video Audition for “Inside Llewyn Davis”
She has an impressive body of work and plenty of Tinseltown credibility, so when it came time to audition for “Inside Llewyn Davis,” Carey Mulligan was admittedly a little too lax.
During her interview on “The Graham Norton Show,” the “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” babe confessed she was a little tipsy when she made a video to send to the studio on her mobile phone.
“I was so excited so I did the audition after a dinner where I had had a few drinks. My American accent is better after a few drinks and then I decided to eat something - it works for Brad Pitt, who eats all the time in films. It was a really drunk audition. Thank God, I didn't send it.”
Carey also recalled her audition for “The Great Gatsby”- “It was daunting. It was really scary. Daisy has to kiss Gatsby but you don't just kiss Leonardo DiCaprio. We were halfway through the scene and I was close to his face but had to ask the director if I should kiss him. He said yes, so I just did it and I got the job. That's how you get a job.”
