February 2011: Another month, another piece of rumored man-candy.

Which may have led to the most fortuitous meet of Carey's life.

The pair met back in 2009 when they presented an award together at the BAFTAs.

But while Eddie has perhaps yet to become a household name, the 29-year-old actor is no stranger to a leading lady…

The duo was first linked in August 2009 after the costars met on the set of .

October 2010: Just a few weeks after word of the breakup, well, broke, Carey turned up at the Hollywood Awards with fellow Brit actor Tom Sturridge (though they went to some major and ultimately unsuccessful lengths to avoid being caught out).

And the three disparate gentleman vying for her heart in Far From the Madding Crowd (in theaters Friday), based on Thomas Hardy's 1874 novel.
