Carey Mulligan is growing out her pixie cut into something adorable


Can I just admit something? I love this hair. I wish I had the face to pull off this hair. I’m not a fan of pixie cuts in general (it probably has something to do with my bangs trauma, etc), but THIS is the way to grow out a pixie cut and look fabulous. The last time I saw Carey Mulligan, she was still doing the pixie thing, and now this is how she turned up for the Toronto film festival, to promote Never Let Me Go. She looks gorgeous. I love it, love it, love it.

Also, bits and pieces of Carey’s Vogue interview have come out, and she’s just as adorable as you would hope. She talks about not fitting into sample sizes and her boyfriend Shia LaBeouf and well… I just love this girl.

Carey Mulligan tells Vogue: ‘I want to be in Glee, but I’m told I’m not famous enough to be a cameo.’

The actress, who appears on the October cover of the U.S. title in Chanel haute couture, is promoting Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, in which she co-stars with real-life beau Shia LaBeouf. But she revealed that they never attend red carpet events together.

‘Posing on the red carpet feels like you’re selling something that has nothing to do with you,’ she said. ‘If you do it with someone else, it’s like we’re saying: “Oh! We come as a pair! Would you like to buy both of us? We’re available for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs.”‘

In fact she makes effort to shy away from the limelight as she feels that too much fame might hinder her career.

‘I want people to not recognise me, to think I’m a different actress, not remember me from what I did previously,’ she explained. ‘If people have all those other pictures and stories associated with you, it means they have to work harder to believe you as a character.’

But modeling the highly covetable garments was a far less glamorous experience than she anticipated.

‘The cover dress was very pretty but wouldn’t go over my arse,’ she told the Daily Express. ‘Sample sizes are very, very tiny. I’m actually wearing a towel around my waist and the bottom is clipped up because I couldn’t fit.’

But she’s not about to start dieting to fit into size zero gowns. She told Vogue that when she was at her thinnest, she couldn’t perform as well.

‘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,’ she said. ‘That’s why, when I came out here, I never had that whole Hollywood pressure thing. I never said I wanted to be a lead actress; I never said I wanted to be a film actress. This need to trump everyone bewilders me. I’m only 25. I’m not better than anyone. I just want to watch other people and learn to be good.’

Don’t you just love her? I like that she said she can’t think properly when she’s thin. And, let’s face it, this girl is THIN. She’s just not a size zero, but she is thin. I’ve also been worried about Carey and Shia, but maybe they’re just trying to keep their relationship quiet, which is to be admired. God knows this whole situation makes me think very highly of Shia, but if he ever breaks Carey’s heart, I will lose a lot of love for him.

Here’s the trailer for Never Let Me Go… I haven’t read the book, so it seems very strange to me:

    I love this hair too! If I ever go this short I’d probably go for something like this.

  2. Amanda says:

    Her hair grew fast! I had a short pixie hair cut once and it grew painfully, awkwardly slow. Lucky girl. I loved her hair short, but this is cute too.

  3. ams511 says:

    i want that hair! she sounds you know, nice & intelligent. i like her.

  4. la_chica says:

    adorable! I am growing my pixie out and I’m about an inch behind Carey…wishing I would catch up because this looks great.

    Also wish I had a stylist to do my hair when I go out…


  5. kelbear says:

    Much better and the fishtail braid makes it even more fun.

  6. sassenach says:

    I will see the movie. I loved the book but it haunted me for at least a week after I read it.

  7. aenflex says:

    I don’t think she has the face for that cut. Ah, I could be wrong, she could just be ugly. Homely, maybe. I don’t know she does nothing for me.

  8. danielle says:

    I didn’t love the pixie cut on her – love this tho!

  9. dingle says:

    never though she was anything special in the looks department but she looks really pretty with this hair!

  10. Me says:

    I still prefer Michelle Williams!

  11. original kate says:

    wait – this girl was too big for the sample sizes? are they barbie clothes?

  12. Molly. says:

    “I’m only 25. I’m not better than anyone. I just want to watch other people and learn to be good.”

    Oh, she is so pretty. Not in a bombshell type of way, but she has very interesting and beautiful facial features. I love that haircut so much and I really do like her. Great actress.

    You should really read Never Let Me Go. It’s haunting, yes, but so, so good.

  13. Jillian says:

    Her hair looks so cute! I wish I could do that too, but I have a ridiculous Rapunzel complex and I cry every time I have to get my hair trimmed.

    Also the movie looks really good! From the trailer, it looks like they captured the book’s tone pretty well.

  14. saywat says:

    I love this hairstyle on her. She looks so cute!

  15. Aqua says:

    I really like her and her sense of style.I loved her Oscar dress.She maybe an up and coming talent to watch out for in the very near future.

  16. Jenny says:

    I have such a major girlcrush on her. She’s so cute and seem to be really intelligent and down to earth.

    I must admit I was a little worried when I first heard they were turning Never Let Me Go into a film, because I loved the book SO MUCH,and was almost certain they would mess it up, but the trailer does look very promising.

  17. jane16 says:

    Yes, love her hair, she looks great here and with the pixie. Would love to see short hair make a comeback.

  18. Camille says:

    Not a big fan, but this hair style is such an improvement over that pixie cut. I really like it on her, very cute.

  19. liz says:

    she’s cute. nothing annoying about her

  20. Sally says:

    Adorable hair! I think she looks like a size 0.. but perhaps not a 00.

  21. mln says:

    I just want to watch other people and learn to be good.

    Oh gosh I hope she stays this sweet Never Let Me Go is an amazing book but I really don’t think its a good candidate for a movie. I love CM but I am not willing to put myself through the story again its really sad.

  22. California Surfer says:

    Wow, this chick looks like a young Kim Cattrall – they should do a movie together!

  23. Mouse says:

    She’s just adorable, I love her. Adorable genuine personality, modesty, and she’s so pretty! I love that she doesn’t wear too much make-up. I love the story Never Let Me Go, I can’t wait to see her in it. Sad and scary story though.

    I just watched Dr. Who, the Blink episode that she’s in and I recognized her from Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey.

  24. CB Rawks says:

    “This need to trump everyone bewilders me.”

    She is absolutely awesome!
    Well, she feels just the way I feel, so yeah she’s awesome! :D

  25. teehee says:

    She could pass or Marilyn Monroe if they ever do go ahead and insist on making a biopic. Its totally in the last pic. Just needs drawn eyebrows and a mole. :)

  26. bb says:

    I prefered the pixie on her myself (either that or the long hair)- something about this cut looks either a bit schoolgirlish or a bit soccer mom; can’t decide which.

  27. normade says:

    My new fave actress by far!! Intelligent, talented and natural: the anti Megan Fox!

  28. The Bobster says:

    I’d like to play connect-the-dots with all those moles.

  29. lala in nYc says:

    love the little braids in her hair!

    Carey looks adorable!
