Carey Mulligan and Shia LaBeouf dated for a year

Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan dated for her year from 2009 to 2010, and Shia has been talking about why it didn't work out between the acting twosome.

The candid Lawless star told The Times he still thinks fondly of his ex: "Carey is not just an actress, she is a great human being, a sweet girl and super intelligent. Our thing came down to not having compatible work/lifestyles. We were always travelling, and had sensibility differences that weren't conducive to living with one another.

"I'm harder on myself and my surroundings than she is, and we had a culture shock in terms of meeting her parents and vice versa… sensibilities, cultures, histories. There were differences, that's all."

The pair have both moved on since October 2010 - Carey married Mumford & Sons singer Marcus Mumford earlier this year, while Shia is now dating Karolyn Pho. BS
