Here’s what the 31-year-old actress had to share:
On feeling relief when being killed off on House of Cards: “Finally, I didn’t have to keep lying. For six months last year, every time anyone asked me about work, I gave the impression that I was going back and forth to Baltimore when in reality I was done shooting after three weeks and just hanging out at home in Los Angeles. It was fun for a while, but it was nice to be able to tell the truth again.”
On not being jealous of her sister Rooney Mara: “Luckily, we have never been competitive with each other. No one in my family had ever tried acting before, and I didn’t have any actor friends, so for a while there I was figuring it out on my own. When my sister became an actress, it was awesome to have flesh and blood sharing this intense experience. It’s really been this superintense bonding experience for us.”
On aging: “Every year I feel a little bit better — even if it’s not a great year. Like, even if it might not be as successful a year, or it’s a year of heartbreak or whatever, I feel a little bit smarter and more able to deal with it. I’ve never had that stigma based on age. People are so afraid of getting older, especially in this business, but luckily I don’t have a Peter Pan complex. I mean, if you’re not getting older, then you’re dead, right?”
