Marcus Mumford: Mulligan attracts paps

Marcus Mumford

Marcus Mumford finds it "weird" that he's more interesting to the press since marrying Carey Mulligan.

The lead singer of folk rock band Mumford & Sons tied the knot with Hollywood actress Carey in April of this year. Marcus is still getting used to his increased level of fame.

"There is a bit of that, yeah," he sighed when asked if he gets hounded by the paparazzi a bit more now. "I can't deny it's weird. But there's not as much of it as you'd think.

"I find it hard to believe that I sell newspapers."

Mumford & Sons - also comprising of Ben Lovett, Country Winston Marshall and Ted Dwane - were formed in December 2007.

Marcus insists the group haven't changed, despite their rise to prominence in recent times.

"We're still the same band, the same people. Obviously, things are in a larger scale now. But we're the same four guys. We've just smoked a few more cigarettes, drank a few more beers," he told British magazine NME.

Marcus and Carey - who got engaged in August of last year - welcomed celebrity friends including Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal to their wedding in Somerset, England, earlier this year.
