kaley-05British actress Carey Mulligan has admitted she hardly ever gets recognised by fans when she goes out.

The 25-year-old star feels lucky because despite her fame she can still enjoy a quiet day out.

She told British Look magazine: “My life hasn’t really changed. I don’t have to alter anything about my life, really.

“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 criticising it and I was just sitting there and they had no idea.”

Mulligan thinks her choice of film roles has helped her remain under the radar.

The Hollywood star added: “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.”
