Carey Mulligan prefers parts that address major themes. In the newest People Every Day podcast, Mulligan discussed her new film, “She Said,” which releases on November 18, 2022.
Mulligan and Zoe Kazan are the New York Times reporters who broke the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations, according to People.
Mulligan discussed the movie’s reception of the article. “There was so much published about Harvey Weinstein… the attention seemed to be on what the repercussions of that piece would be,” she remarked.
“But I didn’t realise who made this happen,” she said. Because this subject has been pursued for years, many brilliant reporters have tried to cover it. Megan Twohey and Jody Kantor recorded the story.
“Ashley Judd, Zelda Perkins, Laura Madden—these really courageous women come up and put everything on the line,” Mulligan said. The film is a way to say thanks. Courage is key. It focuses on female strength and heroism.
The 37-year-old actress said she wanted to continue the dialogue.
“It’s one of the largest difficulties we confront as women from birth on,” added Mulligan.
While promoting [She Said], Zoe Kazan and I discussed this.She said you’re raised in a world where you’re trained to be defensive, so you need to be prepared. I think it’s necessary to say, “This is the reality for women everywhere.”
She continued, “Our mothers and grandmothers always did this. This conversation must continue.”
