    Carey had a year to become comfortable with media attention, but unfortunately she hit her stride too late.

    That was a lovelly interview with Carey, but no matter what she does or had done or will do, Blind Side made 250 mil on the box office. An Education did 10mil.

    But I am happy that she is finally enjoying her succes now. Such lovelly girl.

    I really hope Mulligan tries some more challenging roles. No more nonsense like Brothers and Wall Street 2.

    hummmm, what? her cameo in Brothers was good and we no even saw Wall Street 2 yet.

    She went after those films because she wanted to work with Jim Sheridan and Oliver Stone, we can only HOPE she continues to do that.

    Brothers is not exactly high art, and given what Oliver Stone has done recently, I feel safe in thinking his newest will be below average.

    I have some hope for Never Let Me Go, being written by Alex Garland and all, but I hope she goes the Michelle Williams route rather than the Scarlett Johansson route.

    Milligan really does look weak in all those “Wall Street 2” spots. Look at them again, Shia dominates her and not just in ways script calls her.

    I just don’t see it.

    And since when Alex Garland is “all” and all?

    I am a big Alex Garland apologist. 28 Days Later is magnificent and Sunshine is brilliant if you skip through the Pinbacker sections.

    serious, WHAT THE FUCK? Brothers is not hight art? what you are talking about? its an adult character driven film directed by Jim Sheridan , you talk like she signed to do Fast and Furious part 6.

    and what young actrees would turn down working with OLiver Stone? she would be a DUMBASS if she did. Doesnt matter what the haters say, the man is on of the biggest directors in Hollywood and like it or not this film will make her profile a bit higher.

    I have no doubt that she will be brilliant in Never Let me Go.

    PS – If Oliver got great performances from Charlie Sheen and Tom Cruise, I am sure he did a good job with Shia and Carey

    Jesus, I pray that you continue to enneuctor Mariah. Give her dreams and visions of you and what you would have her do. That she would be sensitive to your voice. That she would sing praises to you and bring glory to your name. I pray for her husband as well. That you would bring them closer to each other every day, through your love. Increase your spirit in both of their lives. Let your presence be so evident in all that they do.
