She is one of Hollywood’s rising young stars but actress Carey Mulligan refuses to conform to the industry’s thin ideal.
The Academy Award nominated actress who will be on the cover of fashion bible Vogue’s October issue said that her brain does not work when she becomes skinny.
“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,” the actress told the magazine.
The 25-year-old actress who is dating Transformers star Shia LaBeouf is a fan of the TV musical Glee but says that she is still not famous enough to land a cameo. “I want to be in Glee, but I’m told I’m not famous enough to be a cameo yet,” she said.
As for her much talked about fashion sense, Mulligan said that she refuses to wear anything “above the knee, tight, girly, or ridiculous.”
