Mulligan was shocked when she learned that "The Reader" star and her then-husband Sam Mendes had been in the audience at her 2008 play "The Seagull" because she doubted her performance.

The 29-year-old actress recalled the incident during an interview with Britain's Harper's Bazaar magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"The Great Gatsby" star said: "Someone came to our dressing-room and said: 'Oh, my God! Sam Mendes and Kate Winslet are here.' And I was like, 'Are you kidding?' And I burst into tears.

"Everyone else from the cast went to do a meet-and-greet with him and I went out the back door. I didn't want to go anywhere near them, I was so ashamed. I just got into a cab, went home and cried."
