For their annual feminist issue, ELLE UK chose Carey Mulligan as their November 2015 cover star. On the cover which was shot by Kerry Hallihan, Carey is wearing a grey wool coat and grey ruffle hem trousers which was paired with burgundy oxfords. In the issue, Carey talks talks motherhood, Marcus Mumford, why she would never take on a role weaker than a man's, the respect women receive in the film industry and more. Carey also talks her new film 'Suffragette' which comes out soon. Continue below to read some excerpts from Carey's interview and pick up a copy on newsstand on tomorrow?
On not taking a role weaker than a man's:
‘You don’t say to men: “You played another really strong man. The idea that women are inherently weak – and we’ve identified the few strong ones to tell stories about – is mad.’
On if she would be a suffragette:
'You’d like to think that you would [but] you’re a product of your time. I can express my opinion, but I’ve never had to fight, to stand up for anything. And the notion of walking into a gallery with a knife and destroying a piece of art, that seems unbelievably terrifying to me. And that’s just one, tame example of what they did.’
On becoming a mother:
'I’ve always wanted to be a mother. I love what I do, but I’m excited for this next phase of my life.’
