Carey Mulligan has revealed her doubts about taking her clothes off on the big screen.

The Oscar-nominated actress bares all in a sex scene in her latest film, The Greatest, where she plays a teenage mum-to-be.

"I am reluctant to take off my clothes on camera, but I didn't think the sex scene in The Greatest was gratuitous - it was very kind of pure and sweet," she told

"It was her first time and it happened in sort of a way that she would remember forever."

Carey - who will also star in the eagerly anticipated sequel to Wall Street with boyfriend Shia LaBeouf - formed a close bond with her co-stars in The Greatest, including Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan.

"We had a tiny budget for The Greatest, which was the opposite of Wall Street," she added.

"We didn't even have trailers to stay in or anything. So we were sort of thrust together all the time. But Susan Sarandon kind of mothered us, invited us around for dinner and introduced us to her family."
