Carey Mulligan has revealed that getting naked on screen has helped her deal with her body issues. Mulligan, who appeared nude in Michael Fassbender movie Shame, spoke about how filming nude scenes helped her overcome her 'prudishness'.
"In my own life I'm very prudish about my body, or at least I have been in the past," she told The Sun. "I'm always covering myself up rather than wearing skimpy outfits. I don't look good in very short skirts - at least I don't think so.'I'm often terrified about different aspects of characters I'm playing. With respect to nudity, it was vital to the character in Shame, who wasn't supposed to be a very attractive character and needed to be emotionally naked and lost in different ways. This is who she is - a character who can stand fully naked in front of her brother and not feel anything."
