Carey Mulligan is a "practical romantic"
The `Never Let Me Go` actress - whose relationship with actor Shia LaBeouf ended in October - can`t understand why people play games in relationships and prefers to be honest about her feelings.
She said: "I love love stories, and acting in love stories, so I suppose that`s the romantic side of me but I am quite practical.
"My friends at school used to say, `If a guy texts, you can`t text back for three days.` I was always like, `B******s! Text back.` I`m a practical romantic.
"I`m a hopeless romantic and I always say how I feel. I say things as I think them."
Carey, 25, believes her open attitude leads to less problems in her relationships.
She explained to LOOK magazine: "I can be in a mood for half a day and then say everything, but I would never hold on to a feeling for years.
"I think it`s better to be open most of the time. If you put something out there and it doesn`t work, then you can forget about it and carry on."
