Carey Mulligan has insisted that she does not diet.
In an interview with Elle magazine, the actress revealed that she does not like the way her body looks when she is too thin and recalled her experience with eating too little in the past.
"Weetabix for breakfast, soup for lunch and salad for dinner. 'No, I will not have that glass of wine! Put that pizza away!'" she remembered.
"It was not fun. I look back and it's really, really not worth depriving yourself."
She added that she feels responsible for setting a good example for young fans, explaining: "I was very thin at the beginning of An Education and I remember the scene where I'm dancing and you can see my spine. Yuck.
"I would never want to be so thin that someone would think it was a good idea to be thin, and make themselves miserable. I know this sounds wanky, but I would never want to set a bad example, basically."
