You can call Natalie Portman the next Audrey Hepburn, Ryan Gosling the next quirky Brad Pitt or Lindsay Lohan the next Anna Nicole Smith but Carey Mulligan she’s, the next no one. There’s never really been one like her has there? Michelle Williams perhaps but they’re only five years apart in age.
She broke onto the scene with a starring role in An Education, made me cry over love and lost organs in Never Let Me Go, took awkwardness to a whole new level in Drive, and has two very current major roles in the in the forms of Shame (currently in limited release) and The Great Gatsby alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. She tells W Magazine that her role in Shame playing the sister of a hopeless sex addict (Michael Fassbender) was a physically easy role to play.
