On feeling nervous for her role in Great Gatsby: "I've never done anything where I've felt so nervous of f--king it up. This 'Gatsby' project inspires so much anger or passion from people. Even British people don't get upset if you mess up an Austen adaptation, 'Oh that's fine, we've all done it.' But in America it's like, 'Don't f--k with Fitzgerald.'"

On her co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio: "Leonardo is absolutely intent on everyone being at the top of their game, which is so important," Mulligan said. "They would film him, then they would turn the camera round and film me, and he would carry on doing exactly what he was doing when the camera was on him."

On not wanting to watch herself act: "I've learnt that lesson properly now. I see all the places I could have done things differently, all the ways I've gone wrong. I can see myself acting. I think it's quite natural though, to see yourself wearing a black wig and think, 'Oh no, don't do that. Why are you doing that? Stop talking like that.'"
