Hollywood Has Made All of Carey Mulligan’s Dreams About Mario Lopez Come True

Carey Mulligan has been in love with Hollywood ever since age 11, when she spotted Saved by the Bell star Mario Lopez at Muscle Beach. "I’m always thrilled when I see him," Mulligan said at a Young Hollywood roundtable this weekend, though now that she's an Oscar-nominated actress and he's the host of Extra, their relationship is a little more intimate: "He hosts a show, and every time, all the way through awards season, every time we did a red carpet and I saw A.C. Slater I was like a complete disaster. I went bright red ... and they make you stand really close to these people, uncomfortably close, and because of the camera angles and I was always within sort of kissing distance. Every one of my dreams has come true this year, including that." [LAT]
