FIRST LOOK: Carey Mulligan appears unrecognizable as she is spotted on set of She Said playing journalist who helped take down Harvey Weinstein

Carey Mulligan appeared nearly unrecognizable on the set of her upcoming movie She Said in New York this week.

Carey, who in real life sported a blonde look earlier this year on the awards circuit, was wearing a long dark hairdo with fringe on the set this week.
