Mulligan Talks Shame, Tattoos, Nudity, Being Rogers & Astaire with Fassbender Carey Mulligan chats with Vulture about everything from nudity in "Shame" to her late night drive with "Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn. (He was in a Puma track suit, she was high on "seventeen Red Bulls" when they almost got arrested.) Mulligan begged Steve McQueen for the part in "Shame"; what locked down the role was a conversation surrounding "The Seagull"--the similarities between Nina and Sissy and the seagull tattoo Mulligan was wanting (she got it the following day, after McQueen gave her the part).
