HOLLYWOOD actress Carey Mulligan has revealed she attempted to audition for her latest movie with a boozy mobile phone selfie.
But the Oscar-nominated British star admitted she had a change of heart and opted not to send it.
She told TV presenter Graham Norton, while appearing as a guest on his BBC1 chat show tonight, that she was able to perfect a US accent after a drink.
Mulligan went on to land the role in the Coen brothers' film Inside Llewyn Davis, about a singer in New York's Greenwich Village folk scene in the early 1960s.
She told Norton she was a "bit tipsy" when she filmed herself on the phone.
"I was so excited so I did the audition after a dinner where I had had a few drinks," she said.
"My American accent is better after a few drinks and then I decided to eat something – it works for Brad Pitt, who eats all the time in films.
"It was a really drunk audition. Thank God, I didn't send it."
Other guests on the show, include Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone.
