Carey Mulligan strikes back at review

Range released an evaluation composed by freelancer Dennis Harvey of her movie “Promising Young Woman,” a darkly comic #MeToo vengeance tale.

In it he composed, “Mulligan, a fine actress, seems a bit of an odd choice as this admittedly many-layered apparent femme fatale — Margot Robbie is a producer here, and one can (perhaps too easily) imagine the role might once have been intended for her. Whereas with this star, Cassie wears her pickup-bait gear like bad drag; even her long blonde hair seems a put-on.”

Mulligan informed The New york city Times in an interview, “I read the Variety review, because I’m a weak person.”

“And I took issue with it,” she stated. “It felt like it was basically saying that I wasn’t hot enough to pull off this kind of ruse.”

Range reacted by including an editor’s note to the evaluation.

“Variety sincerely apologizes to Carey Mulligan and regrets the insensitive language and insinuation in our review of ‘Promising Young Woman’ that minimized her daring performance,” it checked out.

In a just recently released discussion with fellow starlet Zendaya for Range’s “Actors on Actors” series, Zendaya asked Mulligan about her criticism of the evaluation and the apology from Range.

“I feel it’s important that criticism is constructive,” Mulligan stated. “I think it’s important that we are looking at the right things when it comes to work, and we’re looking at the art, and we’re looking at the performance and the way that a film is made. And I don’t think that goes to the appearance of an actor or your personal preference for what an actor does or doesn’t look like, which it felt that that article did.”

A representative for the publication informed CNN on Thursday, “Variety has no further comment. The apology speaks for itself.”
