Carey Mulligan developed a soft spot for actor Freddie Prinze Jr. when she was a teenager, and she joked that it's been hard finding other celebs to live up to him.

She said: “When I was 14, all of my school friends and me were absolutely obsessed with Freddie Prinze Jr. He seemed to be everywhere and in everything was my first celebrity crush. So it set the bar high, because everyone since then has had to live up to Freddie Prinze Jr.”

Although she doesn’t have any celebrity crushes now, Carey Mulligan does have a famous friend -- Keira Knightley.

The two young starlets first met while shooting Pride and Prejudice and have become even closer since making the critically acclaimed drama movie Never Let Me Go together.

Carey Mulligan told new! magazine: “Keira and I met on Pride and Prejudice, but we didn’t become friends until the following year, when we were promoting the film. We got close because we’re both the same age, we both live in London and have the same circle of friends. It was great to work with her again on Never Let Me Go but it’s funny because in Pride and Prejudice I only had three lines. To do something equal to her, where we’re challenging each other, is great. I feel so lucky.”
