Following her split from boyfriend Shia LaBeouf and a move into a budget hotel, things are looking up again for Carey Mulligan.
The British beauty has been recently linked to English actor Tom Sturridge (pictured).
Last week Robert Pattinson's famous friend was spotted visiting Carey and more recently the pair were caught on camera leaving Hollywood's famous Chateau Marmont hotel.
And the An Education star has even poked fun at her current humble residence in a recent interview.
"I don't know why people are so down on the Best Western," she joked. "They have the best sweet potato fries."
Since her split from Shia, the 25-year-old has been busy with filming her new movie Drive, after which it's reported she'll return to living in the UK.
