Carey Mulligan has been busy promoting 'The Great Gatsby' all over the world, and the film is currently projected for a $40 million+ opening weekend. Mulligan, in one of her recent interviews, opened up about going into audition for such an iconic role and the backlash she received when she was initially cast as Daisy Buchanan.

She talks about initially auditioning for the role, with her agent calling her up in 2011 and asking, "Have you ever read 'The Great Gatsby'? I said that I hadn't and he said, well, you should read it 'cause you have an audition now on Monday. Lucky that it's not very big. It's not long, it's quite an accessible novel. So the first time I read it, I was really thinking about Daisy and thinking about the scenes that I was going to do on Monday. And then when I read it again, I got to appreciate it in a better way."
 
According to Carey, the first reactions to her casting were not at all positive, with quite a few people saying how much they hated the character. She explains the backlash, saying, "Everyone said how much they hated Daisy. I had a lot of people go, 'Oh, she's awful.' And I was like, well, I can't think that about her, because I can't play her thinking she's awful. Lots of people have strong opinions about the book because it's so well loved and I think you face that with every adaptation of a novel. I wanted the serious conversations about the character to be with Baz and to follow his direction."
