Carey Mulligan Reveals Vogue Cover Dress 'Wouldn't Go Over My Arse,' Had To Wear Towel

Posted: Updated:

Carey Mulligan's October Vogue cover appears totally polished but behind-the-scenes it was anything but. The actress revealed to Express.co.uk that all of the clothes were sample sizes straight from Paris, so "the cover dress was very pretty but wouldn't go over my arse. Sample size is very, very tiny. I'm actually wearing a towel around my waist and the bottom is clipped up because I couldn't fit."

According to the Daily Mail, Mulligan once went down to 112 pounds, recalling, "my brain doesn't work when I'm that thin, so I can't do my job." She told the Mail, "That's why, when I came out here, I never had that whole Hollywood pressure thing. I never said I wanted to be a lead actress; I never said I wanted to be a film actress."
