Alison Brie defends the promising young woman’s Carey Mulligan after she says critics think she is not “hot” enough
Emerald Fennell’s promising young woman has made headlines and accolades left and right since it was first published last December. However, a review that was released long before it hit theaters caused quite a stir. After Carey Mulligan, who plays the title Cassie Thomas, said the review in question suggested she wasn’t “hot” enough for the role, there was quite a back and forth between the reviewer, Mulligan, and the National Society of film critics . Alison Brie, who stars alongside Mulligan in Promising Young Woman, recently came out to defend the actress on the whole situation.
