> Carey Mulligan "burst into tears" over Great Gatsby role
Digital Spy sat down with the Oscar-nominated British actress to discuss the wildness of her character Sissy, singing 'New York, New York' for one of McQueen's extended takes and why she loves acting without having to look at a camera.
Mulligan said of her camera shyness: "If it was up to me they'd put little tiny cameras in the walls and I wouldn't have to see them at all. It'd be like Big Brother. I'm much more comfortable the further away I am from the camera.
"Lone Scherfig on An Education was always trying to educate me that the camera is your only way of telling a story and it's your friend. I try to feel better about it but I am more comfortable when I can't see it."
Shame opens in UK cinemas on January 13.
