Rooney Mara shows off her new haircut while taking her dog for a walk on Wednesday (August 17) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
It was just announced that the 31-year-old actress’ new film Lion will be the centerpiece of the American Express Gala at the 2016 BFI London Film Festival, according to Variety.
Lion was adapted from the memoir “A Long Way Home” by Saroo Brierly and “tells the true story of how a wrong train takes a five-year-old Indian boy hundreds of miles from home; he survives many challenges before being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, haunted by memories of his childhood, he learns of a new technology called Google Earth, and sets out to find his lost family.”

The Discovery is set to premiere on Netflix in 2017.

Kate Mara steps out in a leather jacket while running errands with a pal on Thursday (March 31) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 33-year-old actress is back in town after traveling to Liberia, Africa with her younger sister Rooney Mara to visit more than 60 chimpanzees who were abandoned and left to die by the New York Blood Center one year ago.
The chimps were used for a decade in invasive research, but funding on the project was pulled and the animals were sent away.
“We are writing to urge New York Blood Center to renew your financial obligation to the more than 60 chimpanzees in Liberia you once used for invasive research. As you are aware, when you withdrew all support for these chimpanzees one year ago, you left them in a life-threatening situation,” the sisters wrote in an open letter. “If it had not been for the dedicated caretakers and emergency care from nonprofit organizations like The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, these chimpanzees would surely have died horrible, slow and painful deaths from dehydration and starvation.”
