Rooney Mara Covers 'T, The New York Times Style Magazine'
Here is what the 28-year-old Her actress had to share with the mag:
On what people think of her: “In high school, people thought I was stuck-up because I didn’t talk to anyone. It was just because I was shy and scared, but I think because I’m super-self-possessed that it doesn’t come across as scared so much as stuck-up. I would hear what people thought and be like, ‘No! I’m actually nice!’ But now people can think whatever they want.”
On enjoying taking a break: “I haven’t worked since last Thanksgiving and I have no plans on working anytime soon. After a movie I always feel a little lost. While you’re doing it you feel like you’re having some sort of revelation, like it’s real, and then its over and you’re like, ‘That was not real.’”
On her secret talent: “I have hidden rhythm — like, I’m a crazy dancer when I’m alone — but I’m a little too shy to let it come out in public. But, let me tell you, it’s going to come out.”
