Carey Mulligan has a new musician boyfriend, Marcus Mumford

Mumford & Sons
British actress Carey Mulligan, who was last linked with prettyboy actor Tom Sturridge after her split with Shia LaBeouf last fall, may have a new boyfriend. The Daily Mail reports that she’s dating musician Marcus Mumford, 24, of the band Mumford and Sons. I saw this guy perform at the Grammys with his band and then with Bob Dylan. He’s such a great musician, I remember being so impressed with him at the time, and I kind of love this story. I can’t believe he’s just 24 with that kind of talent.

British starlet Carey Mulligan is enjoying a whirlwind romance with Marcus Mumford, lead singer with folk rockers Mumford & Sons.

The 25-year-old An Education actress is said to be ‘besotted’ with the English singer and has flown to the UK from her base in New York to be with him.

She and Marcus, 24, are currently enjoying a romantic weekend together in Buckinghamshire after spending last week in the Orkney Islands.

‘They’ve also been spending time at Marcus’s London home in Shepherd’s Bush,’ says a close friend.

The pair first got together in Nashville, Tennessee, last month.

A spy says: ‘Marcus invited Carey to watch him play a secret show in the basement of his friend Mike Harris’s home in Nashville. She sat in the front row and while he was singing Marcus looked down at Carey and she blushed. It was clear they had chemistry.

‘Afterwards they went to the City House restaurant and dined with friends but they sat together and acted like a couple.

‘Carey’s hoping they can spend more time together when Marcus flies back to America next month for a major tour with his band. He’s hired a vintage train instead of a tour bus and has asked Carey to join him for the trip. It’s early days but they seem to enjoy each other’s company.’

That all sounds so romantic – they’re spending weekends together and he’s asked her to go on tour with him on his special old timey train. I hope this works out for them. From what I know of Carey she’s very down to earth (she stayed in a Best Western for a while) and doesn’t seem to be letting her success get to her head. I don’t know much about this guy except for what I’ve seen on stage. They look like they would make a very nice couple though.

    cool. i love when two really talented pple get together.

  2. Dani says:

    He looks older than 24, probably because he is so chubby.

  3. PrettyTarheel says:

    I don’t consider him chubby so much as well packed. Of course, I prefer my guys with a little more meat on them as opposed to the skinny musician stereotype (see: Pete Wentz).

    Mumford looks like Tim Tebow to me, which is a compliment in my mind, since I find Tebow hot. The band is fantastic-the Cave is stuck in my head!

    I’m pretty sure the Nashville show Carey Mulligan went to she went to was the one she went to with Jake Gyllenhaal and the castmates of whatever film they happened to be shooting at the time. It was stressed at the time that Carey and Jake were not dating.

    Here’s one recap of that weekend:

    At the time Carey Mulligan was supposedly dating Tom Sturridge (at least according to the insider denials that Jake and Carey were a couple because they went to the same concert).

    I like the idea of this couple in that these are two up & coming super-talented and slightly left of center (art-wise) people who probably won’t be doing photo ops for the tabloids at every juncture.

    @PrettyTarheel, I agree: men need to NOT look like they could faint during sex or something. Big guys foreva!!

  6. Mary jones says:

    Chubby? He looks pretty thin in the group picture above. Hes cute.

  7. Emma says:

    She’ll just never be as good as Laura Marling (Marcus’ ex). They made such good music together..

  8. guesty says:

    I have no clue who these people are but he seems beyond annoying. Kinda like he would be funny for the first quick minute but the ‘funny’ would never ever stop.

    Maybe he’s just singing in that top pic but still.

  9. Kbomb says:

    in the bottom pic he looks like Brendan Fraser. LOVE mumford and sons!! while I don’t find her empirically attractive, I do think mulligan is cute as a button. good for them.

  10. Hollowdoll says:

    Well she definitely has a type. Cute and quirky. I like! I hope they are very happy together.

  11. Chelsey says:

    I didn’t know that he and Laura Marling had broken up?? If so, and this is true, then I LOVE it. Carey is absolutely adorable and I think Marcus is so cute and talented, this is a perfect coupling IMO. I like this news!

  12. gloaming says:

    Saw them at Glastonbury, they’re fantastic live!

    That video flutters posted is so cute of the two of them together…..

  13. moon says:

    Marcus is not chubby, he’s British and the Brits are softer looking but just as muscular underneath, I know this as I am a Brit, my 26 yr old son tall and lean looks soft but when he works and tenses his muscles they are just as strong and firm as his Canadian buddies and work mates. People ought to be less judgemental and those who say he’s chubby are probably in need of some diet tips and an exercise program themselves.Mumford&Sons make awesome music, all the best to them and I hope they come to western Canada on their tour.

  14. Myra says:

    Wasn’t she she pictured holding hands with some dude? Maybe that was Sturridge. Anyway, this is the kind of guy I can buy her with, based on knowing pretty much nothing about her haha. It seemed odd that she was “dating” Shia.

  15. Siren6 says:

    Adorable! I hope this is legit.

  16. Victoire says:

    She’s sweet =) Wish her best

  17. Ell says:

    Both talented, moving up and cute. Good luck to them.

  18. ctkat1 says:

    I love Mumford & Sons- good for Carey! I remember the video of the show in Nashville, when Carey and Jake G. showed up at this random house party in Nashville.

    It’s nice when one of the gossip mysteries gets solved!

  19. bex says:

    OMG I would kill to get to see Mumford and sons at Glastonbury!

  20. Heather says:

    Nooo! I liked her with Eddie!

  21. normades says:

    Yeah what happened to Eddie? Man, she’s moving fast. Go Carrie!
