Carey Mulligan, 30, doesn’t want her daughter to have piercings or tattoos.
The Suffragette actress gave birth to her first child with husband Marcus Mumford (lead singer for Mumford & Sons) earlier this month – a baby girl named Evelyn. Carey states she will advise her little girl not to make modifications to her body, or hide her natural beauty with cosmetics.
Asked what life lesson she’ll teach her daughter, she said: ”Oh, man, one life lesson? No make-up, no piercings, no tattoos.”
The actress believes her new movie shows women’s rights shouldn’t only be taught to young girls.
She told the New York Daily News‘ Confidenti@l column: ”I think [being a mother] is all so new at this point, it’s sort of hard to reflect because it’s only been the last couple of weeks but what I really love about the film is that [my character] has a little boy and she doesn’t have a girl. Because she has a son, it’s sort of reflecting the idea that this fight isn’t for women.
”It’s for human rights and equality and that serves men as well as women and that was something watching the film and talking about the film now is really important: That feminism isn’t just for girls. It’s something that is everyone’s issue.”
