Carey Mulligan

Of course, Carey Mulligan is gorgeous all dolled up, but the actress is absolutely flawless with a bare face. What's your secret, girl?

The Inside Llewyn Davis star was relaxed on the set of her new movie Suffragette, which began filming in London today. During a break between shooting, the 28-year-old was photographed in full costume, wearing a navy beret, long black overcoat and gray fingerless gloves, for her portrayal as Maud, a woman who is one of the early members of the British feminist movement.

The film also stars Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep who will play political activist Emmeline Pankhurst.

The British beauty has talked about the lengths she's gone to land a good part...even getting some permanent body art. 

In an interview with The Guardian, she described how she convinced director Steve McQueen to give her the part of Sissy in Shame by promising to get a seagull tattoo. "He said, 'You're a f--cking artist!' And I said, 'Yeah, I'm going to get a f--king tattoo'," she recalled.

The road to landing the role of Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrman's The Great Gatsby was a little bit easier.

"It was daunting," she said. "It was really scary. Daisy has to kiss Gatsby, but you don't just kiss Leonardo DiCaprio. We were halfway through the scene and I was close to his face but had to ask the director if I should kiss him. He said yes, so I just did it and I got the job," she added. "That's how you get a job." 

If only all jobs were that simple.
