Marcus Mumford crashes ‘SNL’ monologue
Marcus Mumford’s wife, Carey Mulligan hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the first time this weekend. “People in America are always saying nice things to me like, ‘I loved you in “Brokeback Mountain” and ‘You’re amazing in “Fosse/Verdon,”‘” Mulligan said. “I used to say, ‘Oh, sorry, that’s Michelle Williams,’ but now I just say, ‘Thank you. I’m Michelle Williams.'” Carey spoke about quarantining in the English countryside with her husband, Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford, and their two young kids, Evelyn, 5, and Wilfred, 3. She described channeling “all that dramatic energy” into her children’s bedtime stories during the lockdown, joking, “Lots of recently divorced dragons and unicorns with secret pill habits. So I’m excited to be here tonight to let some of that energy out.” Mumford, who has appeared on “SNL” as a musical guest three times, popped up standing behind the audience at Studio 8H mid-monologue. “What a surprise,” Mulligan said. “Hello, lovely to see you. Where are the kids?” “I left them with the Sons,” Mumford told her. “Couldn’t miss this for the world. You’re going to smash it, really. ‘SNL,’ this is amazing. Just be sure to soak it in because after it’s over you’re going to think about it all the time. Like, all the time.” Mumford then sweetly played Mulligan out as “SNL” went to commercial break.
