Carey Mulligan admits crush on Mario Lopez

She earned an Oscar nomination for 2009's "An Education" and has starred opposite actors like Michael Douglas, Johnny Depp and Jake Gyllenhaal, but the highlight of Carey Mulligan's career so far has been meeting Mario Lopez.

During a recent L.A. Times Young Hollywood roundtable chat, the 25-year-old British It girl revealed that she's had a crush on the "Saved by the Bell" star ever since she saw him at L.A.'s Muscle Beach during a family vacation when she was 11.

And to this day, she still gets flustered when she sees the "Extra" host at Hollywood events.

"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," says the "Wall Street 2" star. "I went bright red… and they make you stand really close to these people - uncomfortably close - and because of the camera angles, I was always within sort of kissing distance."

Those intimate public moments have been the biggest perks of fame by far. "Every one of my dreams has come true this year, including that,” she says.

    Sorry Glitterbug, you're wrong about Carey Mulligan playing Alice. It's Mia Wasikowska. But Carey Mulligan is adorable and talented, and I'm sure Mario Lopez is quite flattered.
