Most celebs who move to L.A., even ones who are just starting out, rent a home or an apartment at first, eventually working their way up to an MTV Cribs-worthy house with a 400-person screening room and gold-plated dog-track in the backyard. But Carey Mulligan, bless her fiscally prudent heart, is allegedly biding her time at a Los Angeles Best Western. Because even hot, young actresses enjoy a continental breakfast. (You can use that as your tag line, Best Western. You’re welcome.)
An employee of the motel said Mulligan has stayed there for about two weeks, and often brings groceries back to her room. Careful not to leave your hotplate on, Carey! Mulligan split from her Wall Street 2 co-star Shia LaBeouf and moved out of the home they shared, so she needed a place to stay while she’s in L.A. shooting the upcoming film Drive. There are indeed photos of Mulligan exiting the motel so we can verify that she and not some other awesomely-coiffed doppelganger has definitely been there.Ã‚Â The motel employee also says “She looks great and sometimes comes with a guy friend and it’s not Shia. It’s weird seeing her here. I’m like in awe.” We’re in awe too, but in a way it makes total sense to stay at a budget motel for privacy, no one would look for you there. Guess it’s time to move on to the Red Roof Inn, we hear their employees are more discreet.
