Mulligan: Leo's so cool

Carey Mulligan can't believe how suave Leonardo DiCaprio is.

The actress starred as Daisy in The Great Gatsby, with Leonardo, Toby Maguire and Isla Fisher also appearing in the tale of love, obsession and money set in the '20s.

The costumes reflected the lavish time period, and Carey was more than complimentary when it came to her co-star’s ability to pull off a daring look.

“I’d never done anything where I’d been dressed in that sort of way. You become very precious when you’re wearing millions of dollars of rings and pearls and incredible dresses,” she laughed.

“Seeing Leonardo in a pink suit and realising that he was the only man on the planet who could wear a pink suit and look so cool was a moment for all of us.”

Just being given the opportunity to audition with Leonardo was enough for Carey. The two played love interests and Carey was astounded when she heard she'd won the role

“It was just crazy, and so much fun. I walked away thinking, if nothing else, I got to act with him and be directed by Baz Luhrmann, even if it was just for an audition,” she remember to Britain’s Star magazine.
