Carey Mulligan's Age Confusion
Carey Mulligan feels much older than her 24 years, because she has achieved so much in her life already.
Carey Mulligan feels old.
The 'An Education' actress - who is dating actor Shia LaBeouf - admits her work and life experiences make her seem much older than her 24 years, though she is still a teenager at heart.
She said: "I think I feel older. You meet a lot of people much older, one of my closest friends in an actor called Denis Lawson who is in his fifties. I met him when I was 20 on 'Bleak House' and we are bonded by an experience and so yes, in some ways I feel older but in some ways I feel like a 13 year old.
"But also, I've been working, I have a career, I've bought my own flat, I have a mortgage - so sometimes I feel annoyingly grown up and I don't want to be but most of the time I feel 12."
The 'Public Enemies' actress also admitted she won't carry on acting forever.
She said: "I have always wanted to keep going for as long as I want to but then I will stop if I get bored or if I get frustrated or tired - but I don't feel it."
