If Carey Mulligan hadn't shown some chutzpah during her audition for The Great Gatsby, she might not have landed the role of Daisy Buchanan!
Wednesday on Good Morning America, the 27-year-old British actress revealed that it was kissing Leonardo DiCaprio that helped get her cast in the flick.
"I think that's a story that's been elaborated by Baz [Luhrmann, the movie's director]," she said with a laugh. "But, it said in the script that Daisy kisses Gatsby and in auditons, you don't know if it's kind of inappropriate. So I asked Baz, should I kiss him [Leonardo]?' And Baz said, 'Yes,' so I did! And now Baz tells that as the story that landed me the role."
