Actress Carey Mulligan graces the cover of Vogue's May 2013 issue by Mario Testino.
Along with 3-D effects and a soundtrack produced by Jay-Z, Baz Luhrmann's spectacular, all-star production of The Great Gatsby casts the inimitable Carey Mulligan as Gatsby's bewitching obsession, Daisy Buchanan:
Here is what the 27-year-old Great Gatsby actress had to share with the mag:
On waiting to find out if she got the role: "I was trying to be cool, but oh, it was horrible. 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."
On making the Great Gatsby: "It was crazy and exhausting and quite overwhelming... the biggest, craziest production I've ever been involved in."
On her good fortune in Hollywood: "It's unsettling that you get exactly what you wanted. Not like some version of it, not a slightly lesser version of it, but exactly. You're like: This is weird. It is weird."
