Carey Mulligan: People Don't Know I'm Famous

Carey Mulligan is easily one of the most underrated actresses of our time. She had an Academy Award nomination and a high profile Hollywood romance before she was even 25, yet no one ever recognizes her.

Carey, whose relationship with Shia LaBeouf ended in October, says she feels lucky no one ever recognizes her because she gets to live her life under the radar.

She said: “I don’t have to do anything! Hand on heart, I’ve never been stopped in the street by anyone. Ever. No one recognizes me, which is great." She added, “My life hasn’t really changed. I don’t have to alter anything about my life, really."

But no being recognized can always have a downside. “I was sitting in a gondola at Telluride Film Festival with six people who had just watched ‘Never Let Me Go’. They were having a conversation about it and criticizing it and I was sitting there and they had no idea.”

When asked why she thinks she's remained under the radar she explained to LOOK magazine: “I think that fame comes with big films where people are playing characters, like comic book movies, and an audience has ownership over that person. For the films I have been in so far, the fan base is different.”

Whatever the case she has lifelong fans here at Hollyscoop. She's so elegant and graceful, how can anyone not love her?
