Bundled up to thwart the wintry east coast weather, Carey Mulligan was joined by her guitar toting fiance Marcus Mumford while heading to tend to press duties in New York City on Sunday (January 8).
The English actress was escorted inside The Times Center, where she cleaned herself up before parting in the New York Times TimesTalk as part of the 2012 NY Times Arts & Leisure weekend.
The weekend outing comes just after Miss Mulligan spoke with the Times about her nudity laden role in the Steve McQueen directed film "Shame".
“I had days of walking around New York with Steve, just talking about films and how women’s bodies are portrayed in cinema, and the absurdity of the expectation of how you’re meant to look and as an actress how you’re meant to look,” the 26-year-old dished.
“Mentally, I was never against the idea. I knew [my character, Sissy] didn’t go to the gym and diet, she drank and ate, and so I had fun and didn’t worry about what I looked like,” Carey added. “And by the time we were filming I felt free. It was quite fun in a way because it was the perfect way to flaunt abandon, in that scene. It was kind of liberating.”
