Rooney Mara Regrets Starring in 'Pan': I Hate I'm On That Side of 'Whitewashing Conversation'

Rooney Mara is opening up about regretting her decision to participate in the movie Pan, where she played the role of Native American Tiger Lily.

“There were two different periods; right after I was initially cast, and the reaction to that, and then the reaction again when the film came out. I really hate, hate, hate that I am on that side of the whitewashing conversation. I really do. I don’t ever want to be on that side of it again. I can understand why people were upset and frustrated,” the 30-year-old actress told The Telegraph when asked about the intense backlash.

“Do I think all of the four main people in the film should have been white with blonde hair and blue eyes? No. I think there should have been some diversity somewhere,” Rooney continued, though, she did add that director Joe Wright‘s intentions were “genuine.”
