Ac­tress Carey Mul­li­gan trusted “her gut” when she agreed to star in “Wildlife”, ac­cord­ing to di­rec­tor Paul Dano. The film­maker told the dai­ly­mail news­pa­per: “She called back the next morn­ing, prob­a­bly not 12 hours later. She trusts her in­stincts and her gut.”

The drama film is Dano’s di­rec­to­rial de­but, and it tells the story of a cou­ple whose mar­riage falls apart.

Re­call­ing his meet­ing with the ac­tress, Dano said: “Carey has such a great fa­cil­ity for lan­guage — prob­a­bly comes from do­ing theatre — and as she’s talk­ing, I re­alise the words sound so good in her mouth.

“I stood there think­ing: ‘Yes, I have a movie!’”

Mul­li­gan has been per­form­ing since the age of six and has al­ways con­sid­ered act­ing to be her “thing.”

The ac­claimed star said: “I never did any pro­fes­sional act­ing while I was at school, but act­ing was just my thing and I tried to do ev­ery ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ver­sion of it.

I was s**t at sport. I mean, I was en­thu­si­as­tic, but I was use­less.”
