Carey Mulligan Feels Awful When Being Compared to Audrey Hepburn

February 4, 2010 (9:57 am) GMT
Occasionally called as the next Audrey Hepburn, Carey Mulligan says that it is embarrassing and making her feels like an ogre 'Shrek'.

Oscar-hopeful is "embarrassed" critics are hailing her as the next - insisting she feels like cartoon ogre "Shrek" in comparison to the screen icon. Mulligan has been nominated for a string of awards for her role in "", but the 24 year old is adamant she still has a long way to go to match the "Breakfast At Tiffany" star's success - and looks.

She says, "I've always been so embarrassed by that comparison. You feel like 'Shrek' compared to Audrey Hepburn. It's a really nice comparison, but it just seems so mad." And the rising star admits she was stunned to receive a Best Actress nomination ahead of March Academy Awards.

She adds, "It was like a really good, friendly punch in the stomach. It's a good feeling, but it's like a jolt. You can be in as many top-five lists and have as many people say things to you on red carpets as you like, and it doesn't for a single second make you honestly think that you're going to get nominated."
