It’s not enough for Carey Mulligan to be adorable, beloved by Anna Wintour, and nominated for an Oscar – now she’s dating my secret indie rock boyfriend, Marcus Mumford of Mumford and Sons. And as if those two hooking up isn’t adorably twee enough, they knew each other before they were famous because … they used to be penpals. Yeah. Like, with pens. I had a penpal in elementary school and I guarantee you she did not grow up to be a hot guy in a famous band. Some people have all the freaking luck.
The Sun reports:
A source said: “Carey and Marcus began sending each other letters through their churches when they were kids.
“After becoming friends again things got more serious earlier this year and romance blossomed.
“The couple have spent a lot of time together since while Mumford & Sons have been touring the States.”
