Carey Mulligan - Mulligan Refused Permission To Snap Gatsby Papers
Actress Carey Mulligan was left disappointed while researching her role in The Great Gatsby as bosses at a top U.S. college refused to let her take a photo of author F. Scott Fitzgerald's original manuscript.
The British star plays Daisy Buchanan in director Baz Luhrmann's upcoming big-screen version of the famed novel, and she embarked on an intensive period of research before shooting began.
She even travelled to Princeton University in New Jersey to trawl through its archives of documents relating to former student Fitzgerald - but when she tried to photograph the author's first draft of his most famous work, staff stopped her.
Mulligan tells Empire magazine, "Baz left us loaded with research files, books to read and folders of stuff about the 1920s. I went to Princeton and got to read Fitzgerald's papers. I even saw the first manuscript of The Great Gatsby. They wouldn't let me take a photo though."
