Earlier today, I attended the Los Angeles press day for “An Education”. The film is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl in 1960s suburban London and how her life changes after meeting a man nearly twice her age. While the film was great, Carey Mulligan’s performance was another level. It’s absolutely one of the best I’ve seen this year and she’s a lock for getting nominated come awards season.
Anyway, with her star starting to rise, director Oliver Stone cast her as Winnie Gekko in “Wall Street 2″, and as you can tell by her character’s name, she’s playing Michael Douglas’ daughter and the love interest of Shia LaBeouf. While filming just began a few weeks ago, I got Carey to tell me how it’s going. Watch what she said after the jump:
