Hey look: it’s a diamond engagement ring on Carey Mulligan‘s finger. Which makes sense, as the actress became engaged to Mumford and Sons singer Marcus Mumford last month. The cutest thing about this English It-couple is that Carey and Marcus were pen pals as kids! Aww.
Carey’s 26 and Marcus is only 24. They two had only been dating for five months when Marcus proposed — although they have known one another for quite some time. The Drive star — who previously lived with Shia LaBeouf – has been reluctant to discuss her engagement with the press.
Carey’s currently filming Baz Luhrmann‘s adaptation of The Great Gatsby. She’ll play the Daisy Buchannon to Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Jay Gatsby. Toby Maguire nabbed the role of Nick Carraway. Marcus Mumford should probably be playing Tom Buchannon, but he is not. Alas.
