Rooney Mara Explains How She & Sister Kate Mara Are Different

Rooney Mara is on the cover of Vogue magazine’s October 2017 issue!

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On not getting a role she really wanted: “The producers were like, ‘You’re just too Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. You’re not wide-eyed and innocent enough.’ It was right after I had shot Carol, but it hadn’t come out yet. I’m literally wide-eyed in that. I’m sure at some point it will be the reverse: ‘You’re not edgy enough.”

On why she hates auditioning: “Auditioning is like going on a job interview. You have to wear a certain outfit and behave a certain way and play the game a little bit, and I’m just not good at that. I’m really not,”

On the difference between her and her sister, Kate Mara: “She has a better personality than I do. People like her more…Kate knew definitively that she wanted to be on Broadway and do music and acting by age ten. Maybe because I was a contrarian, I wanted to go to school and not be a child actor.”

Kate Mara Has Never Eaten Pie, Just Like Her Sister Rooney!

Rooney Mara made headlines this week after she admitted to never eating a bite of pie until filming a scene for her new movie A Ghost Story… and now her sister Kate Mara says she’s never eaten pie!

Someone tweeted at Kate asking if she has ever had pie and the actress replied, “Never.”

In the movie, Rooney devours an entire pie during an emotional scene.

“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,” Rooney told the Los Angeles Times.

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.
