Carey Mulligan Too English For Stone

Carey Mulligan was too English when filming 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps'.

The British Oscar-nominee got into trouble with the film's director Oliver Stone because her sensibilities were too English and he required her to have a more American feel.

She said: "He was always trying to make me more American, 'Go to a baseball game, you need to be more American.'

"He wanted me to watch football games and eat hot dogs. He said it a couple of times, 'Don't be so English,' meaning my sensibility, I think, not my accent."

The 25-year-old beauty confesses the role of Michael Douglas' character's daughter Winnie Gekko was her first big US role and she expected Oliver Stone to be more "chaotic" than he was.

She told Time Out Film: "He was very insightful and calm, which I wasn't expecting. I think I expected a chaotic set and a manic American. I'd never done a big American film; I'd done tiny roles in Michael Mann and Jim Sheridan films, so I was expecting something crazy.

"But it was the same, just slightly larger and I had a trailer for the first time."
