Carey Mulligan - Carey Mulligan, Johnny Depp, Kissing Scenes Cut After Nerves

Subscribe to Carey Mulligan alerts

Actress Carey Mulligan has revealed her 'kissing' scenes with Johnny Depp in the movie Public Enemies had to be cut from the film because she looked too nervous. Producers thought the actress appeared "uncomfortable" during the romantic scenes with heartthrob Depp, so decided to axe the scenes.
Speaking on Graham Norton's Bbc1 show, set to air tonight (3rd November 2011), the actress said, "I had to kiss him several times. It was 16 times, but it was cut out of the film because I looked so uncomfortable.I was kissing Johnny Depp and I got really nervous". The revelation was made more embarrassing by the fact Depp was also appearing on the show, along with comedian Ricky Gervais. Mulligan said she had always been a fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean star, saying, "I grew up watching everything he's ever done and it's difficult as I have to hide my inner fan when I am around him - it's terrible". She next stars alongside Michael Fassbender in Steve McQueen's flick 'Shame', which she describes as "a little bit racy", adding, "Dad hasn't seen it. He's not allowed".
Carey is currently shooting The Great Gatsby with another Hollywood heavyweight, this time Leonardo Dicaprio. The movie, an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, is set for release on Christmas day 2012.
