She explained on the show: ‘Not long after that, we got a video of Steven and Kate dancing in their kitchen to one of the songs. And it was so lovely and they were so supportive and so sweet.’

Months later, Carey said Marcus was panicking about getting the music video for Cannibal sorted out so he proposed an interesting idea.

‘He says, ‘We really need a video, and I just had this idea, and would it be mad if like … would it be really rude if we asked Steven?’ And I was like, ‘Steven — sorry, sorry, Steven Spielberg?’ Carey remembered.

Previously, the pair were childhood pen pals and despite losing touch they rekindled their romance after both featuring in black comedy Inside Llewyn Davis.

The actress previously told how the couple write each other love letters whenever they are apart due to their careers.

She told The Telegraph: ‘I think they’re becoming a lost art form, which is very sad. To have a love letter from someone, to hold it in your hand and know that you can keep it for your whole life… well that’s an amazing thing.’

Carey will next star in She Said which follows Twohey (played by Mulligan) and Kantor (Zoe Kazan) as they investigate sexual assault allegations leveled at powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein (Mike Houston).

The pair’s real life investigation helped put Weinstein on trial for his crimes where he was later convicted on two counts for a total of 23 years.

It also sparked the #MeToo movement which has helped other survivors of abuse bring their own allegations forward.
