Carey Mulligan: British films are the best
Carey Mulligan thinks British films are the best.
The 30-year-old actress believes there is an "amazing wealth of talent" in Britain, as well as "incredible actors and incredible directors", that puts the island ahead of its international rivals.
Asked to explain the best thing about British films, she said: "They're just better!
"There's just an amazing wealth of talent in Britain, there's incredible actors and incredible directors and cinematographers and art directors and costume designers.
"We've got a huge history here so there's so many stories to tell and we've got a really amazing multicultural society and so that has so many stories.
"I think we're really good at comedy and really good at real, honest drama as well."
Meanwhile, Carey also revealed the new things she's learned during the course of her acting career, which has included riding horses.
She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I did learn to horse ride for 'Far From the Madding Crowd' which was great until I fell off quite badly, two weeks into filming and had really bad concussion for about six weeks.
"But I actually loved it, not the falling off-concussion bit, but I did love it, it was great."
