Kate Mara Talks 'Fantastic Four' with 'Flare' (Exclusive)
Here’s what the 32-year-old Fantastic Four star had to share with the mag:
On keeping her personal life private: “It’s so simple to me, because as an actor your job is to convince people you are someone else, and it’s harder to do that when people know a lot about who you are and what you do on a Saturday. I’m a private person, but I’m a very open person when it comes to my inner circle.”
On Fantastic Four: “You do get that exciting, fantastical action-packed thrilling thing, but you also get the emotional and very real human part of who these [characters] are. The movie really is about family coming together and what lengths you would go to protect them.”
On having fun on the Fantastic Four set: “The movie is very intense, so the set was an intense environment. But because of our dynamic, there was a lot of joking around. When you’re having to emote a certain kind of energy and vibe all day, you need to joke around to let off some steam.”
On working with Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan: “I screen-tested with Mike and Miles, and for Mike and I, because we play siblings, it was so obvious how comfortable we were with each other. And Miles is a really fantastic actor as well; bantering with him was awesome.”
