We’re sure Carey Mulligan is going to be the PERFECT Daisy in the upcoming rendition of The Great Gatsby, but how did director Baz Luhrmann know?!?!
Through the same way people people fall in love! Through her KISS!!!
Looks like being a good kisser can help when you’re trying to land a role as leading lady!
Luhrmann explains his thought process during Carey’s unconventional audition with leading man Leonardo DiCaprio:
“So she does the scene, grabs him and kisses him. She went out the door and I was just thinking, My God, that is Daisy Buchanan. I wonder what [DiCaprio] thinks. The way Carey manifests Daisy is like something Gatsby would never have met in his lifetime, something so delicate that he would want to protect her to an obsessive and impossible level. And it was done.”
Well shizzz, if we were given the opportunity to smooch Leo, we would take it too!!! We’ll have to remember that move for the next time we audition!
Especially since it sealed the deal against some pretty tough competition — Carey managed to beat out the likes of Natalie Portman, Blake Lively, and Michelle Williams to name a few!!
Ughh now we’re DYING to see the film even MORE!!!!!!!!
Seriously can’t wait!!!!!
