Rooney Mara steps out with boyfriend Charles McDowell on Friday (February 17) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 26-year-old Oscar nominee picked up a drink from Starbucks and also went shopping at Anthropologie with a few friends.
Earlier this month, Rooney attended the Santa Barbara International Film Festival where reporters asked her if she could relate to her Girl With the Dragon Tattoo character, Lisbeth.
“I think, in my real life, I have a little bit of that myself. To be socialized, you have to try not to be that way, but I think I’m pretty matter-of-fact myself,” she shared.
“I don’t really think of it like that. I never really thought, ‘Okay, I’m in character now. Now, I’m out of character.’ I’m sure that a lot of the character did rub off on me, but it’s not anything I’m really conscious of,” Rooney added.
