Carey Mulligan: I dreamed of acting with Leonardo Dicaprio

carey Some childhood dreams, no matter how big they are, eventually do come true. For Carey Mulligan it was acting alongside Leonardo Dicaprio. The actress revealed that as a child she dreamed of appearing in a movie with Dicaprio and her dream became reality with Baz Luhrmann’s movie The Great Gatsby.

”I didn’t do posters of male actors. I think I decided at 12 years old that I wanted to act with Leonardo DiCaprio. I didn’t see him as a pin-up. I know! Pipe dreams! But seriously, I couldn’t imagine in what world I would end up acting in a film with Leonardo DiCaprio,” Carey said.

She said: ”I’d had a martini. And you know, one martini is enough for me. He came over, and we chatted. And I’m thinking: Is my face red? Am I being articulate?’ He gave me this whole speech, ‘Well you know, Carey, I’m a scientist … ‘ And he’s talking in this really poetic, cryptic language. I was like, am I drunk or are you not making any sense?”
