Rooney Mara Had Never Eaten Pie Until Emotional Scene in 'A Ghost Story'

Rooney Mara had never eaten pie until filming A Ghost Story last year!

The 32-year-old actress played a grieving character who devoured an entire pie during an emotional, stand-out scene in the film.

“It was certainly something that popped out at me when I read it, that was one of the things I was really excited to do. So, it doesn’t surprise me that it’s something that jumps out of the movie,” Rooney told the Los Angeles Times.

She added, “It was such a unique way of showing grief; we’ve never seen anything like that before. And I’d actually never had pie before. That was my first and last pie…I just don’t really have a sweet tooth and I was a really, really strange, geeky child. Something about pie always grossed me out and I just never tried it before.”

Although Rooney tried to asked director David Lowery to change it, he stood firm and it ended up being one of the most memorable parts of the film.

    That whole comment just gives me a weird vibe. Who hasn’t eaten pie before? It’s like she always tries to act like she’s not from planet earth. The whole schtick just doesn’t work.

    “Oh look how weird I am, I’m like super strange, so eccentric and unique”

  • Gina

    It especially doesn’t work since we know who her sister is, and she seems relatively normal; & I would imagine that they grew up in the same household lol.

  • rosaryblue

    that’s a great point, I didn’t even think of that! Kate seems so normal and friendly…

    She is one of these socialites who absorb nutrition by sticking it up her butt and she has probably never really ever eaten anything. “Hollywood Diet” for everyone in South Park.

    so she was super excited for the scene, but tried to change the scene. which was it?

  • Casey C

    to me she comes across like Zoey deschanel – weird for the sake of weird, but pretending tht that’s their personality. nope, don’t buy it

  • Just Saying

    Yeah but Zooey Deschanel said in an interview that the whole “adorkable” thing with her had been a campaign for her show New Girl that just didn’t go away. She said she wasn’t like that at all, but people still perceived her like that. The Mara’s just try too hard for no reason at all.
