On the set of Her
When she was young, growing up in hotels all over Europe where her father worked as a manager, Mulligan often took the male roles in the all-girl schools she attended. “The men had better parts,” she told me. “The girl parts were always a bit lame.” In her professional career, she has made a point of not accepting roles as the woman in the shadow of the leading man. “I rather like being brutal in movies.
