Even though Carey and Shia have called it quits, she now appears to be captivated by this cute British actor who happens to be best buddies with R-Patz!
Carey Mulligan isn’t crying over Shia LaBeouf anymore! The extremely talented 25-year-old actress has been living in a Best Western Hotel in LA since splitting with Shia, and moving out of the $1.8 million mansion they shared together. But even though recent reports claim she’s been looking unkempt and depressed while filming Drive opposite Ryan Gosling, it seems she’s found a rather handsome Brit to keep her occupied — Tom Sturridge!
You probably recognize his name because Tom, 24, is best friends with Robert Pattinson, and he’s constantly photographed out and about with Rob and Kristen Stewart! Not only that, he is starring alongside K-Stew in the upcoming film On The Road, which hits theaters some time next year.
Even though Carey and Shia just appeared in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, the movie that started their romance, People is reporting that they ended their romance “some time ago.” Carey most recently starred alongside Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield in Never Let Me Go.
“They broke up because Shia said they were both too busy with their careers,” a source tells U.K.’s Daily Mail. The report goes on to say that Carey has plans to move back to England once she’s finished filming Drive.
We just hope Tom treats Carey right — maybe they can double date with Rob and Kristen!
