Falling in love with Cate was easy for Mara
Hollywood actor Rooney Mara (right), who is sharing a passionate onscreen romance with Cate Blanchett (far right) in Carol, says it was very easy to fall in love with Cate. Mara, 30, said she was initially terrified to meet her co-star, reported People magazine. “I remember the first time I saw Cate, in Elizabeth. I think I was 13. I was like, ‘Oh, my God, who is that woman?’ She’s just so incredible. It was pretty easy to pretend to be enamoured by her. Usually it’s not that great to meet your idols and work with them; it’s kind of a letdown. This definitely wasn’t,” Mara said.
