If you've spent enough time with us over the past few weeks, you'd know that we've got Gatsby fever here at R29. Baz Lurhmann's vision for F. Scott Fitzgerald's crown jewel is coming to theaters next week, and we can't stress enough how badly we want to fast-forward to May 10.

For the magazine's June cover story, Carey Mulligan candidly talks everything from her Daisy Buchanan character to Prada, and crushing on race car driver Michael Schumacher while her girlfriends fawned over her costar, Leonardo DiCaprio.
"Well, he [Leonardo DiCaprio] wasn’t my pin-up," Mulligan confesses, "but he was for a lot of my girlfriends. Michael Schumacher [was my pin-up].
