Carey Mulligan bares some skin on the cover of the W magazine January 2012 issue for photographer Michael Thompson. In a recent interview with MakingOf.com, the “Shame” actress discussed her nude scenes, saying that stripping down was “absolutely right.”
“I’ve been topless once or twice [in a film], but always in sort of very innocent ways,” she explained. “And I’ve always been sort of staunchly feminist about it, I’ve never relished the idea of doing it, and never if it was inappropriate or gratuitous in any way. But I just felt it was absolutely right; that’s exactly who she was. She wanted to be seen, she’s an exhibitionist and she’s provocative.”
In “Shame,” Mulligan’s character plays a sex addict’s younger sister. The film opened Dec. 7. Check out more images from her W magazine January 2012 photo shoot below.
