Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan says ‘nothing gets in the way’ of bathtime with her kids 


Being an in-demand actress means busy work days and glitzy film premieres. 

But according to Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan, nothing takes priority over bathtime with her children, Evelyn, five, and Wilfred, three, whom she shares with Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford, 34. 

The star, 35, is pegged to win the Best Actress award at The Oscars on Sunday for her portrayal of vengeful medical student, Cassie, in Promising Young Woman.

But the actress said she always leaves her character at the door when she returns home as nothing gets in the way of time spent with her children.  

She said to The Mirror on Saturday:  ‘I feel very strongly about my job and I love my job and it’s the best job in the world, but also, it is a job.

‘It can’t be more important than when I have to get home and have to do bathtime. Someone said the other day, “Did you bring Cassie home with you?”

‘And I was like, “The nails I brought home, the hair extensions I brought home, but everything else, you can’t bring that into a house with two kids. You’ve got to leave all of that stuff at work. So I think it’s a system that works for me for now.”‘

The star also revealed that acclaimed actress Nicole Kidman inspired her recent work as she called the Oscar winner, 53, ‘extraordinary, charming, enticing, and terrifying’. 

Carey received her first nomination from the prestigious awards ceremony in 2009 for her performance in An Education. 

As is traditional, last year’s winners will be returning to present the prizes this year — meaning Brad Pitt, Laura Dern, Renee Zellweger, Joaquin Phoenix and Parasite director Bong Joon Ho will be at the LA ceremony.

What is planned for this year’s Oscars is a pared-back, part-virtual version of the ceremony in three different countries, with partying banned and a distinctly dour selection of nominated films to boot. 

The ceremony starts at 5pm on Sunday U.S. time so it will be after 1am on Monday in the UK before a single envelope is opened.

MailOnline’s Alison Boshoff explained that the producers are urging nominees to show up at the LA ceremony which they are calling ‘an intimate, in-person event’ — nothing like the famously effervescent atmosphere which usually results from 3,700 of Hollywood’s finest rubbing shoulders. 

This year, it is just the presenters plus nominees and a single guest each.

The audience capacity will be capped to 170, with those in the crowd suffering the indignity of being rotated in and out of the ceremony at Union Station to maintain social distancing.

Because the awards are being treated as a TV or film production, actors do not have to wear masks when on camera, but must take at least three Covid tests in the days leading up to the ceremony.

As for guests at the two satellite locations, in London and Paris, they will endure the night without as much as a glass of champagne to sustain them.

At the London hub, the British Film Institute on South Bank, only a handful of stars such as Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman director), Vanessa Kirby and Olivia Colman — are expected to attend.
