“I started working when I was 18 years old and I kept going.
“I mean, I’m sure I cut loose when I was a teenager, but I have never been rebellious.
“I’m pretty boring. My wild life is more to do with country walks and crackling log fires.”
The 35-year-old star feels “fortunate” that the coronavirus lockdown hasn’t been too difficult for her and her family.
She explained to OK! magazine: “I’ve spent lockdown in the West Country, thankfully, with space around me.
“I felt very lucky to be in a place with a garden and lots of space for the kids.
“People have had a nightmare in so many different ways and we have been lucky enough to have a nice time to spend together as a family. We feel really fortunate.”
Carey is always happy to pack up her family to travel with Marcus when his band Mumford & Sons are on tour because she feels “very much at home” in hotels.
She said: “Marc’s job requires a lot of travel but we have been lucky enough to be able to travel around as a family and make it work for the most part.
“I feel very comfortable in hotels.
“My father was a hotel manager, so we lived in quite a few different places when I was growing up.
“I feel very much at home in a hotel. Of course, it’s wonderful to have a sense of home – but as long as I’m with the people I love, I don’t feel bereft.
“That feels like enough of a home to me.”
