Rooney Mara resisted acting
Hollywood actor Rooney Mara (above) has said that she “resisted” acting because she was worried she wouldn’t be as good as her sister. Although she took drama classes when she was younger, Rooney, 30, says that she didn’t take acting seriously during her teens because her sister Kate Mara, was so good. “I used to take some drama classes and loved it. For someone who was quite shy as a child and is more of a guarded person, it was a nice way to release now and then. It was something I wanted to do, but I resisted it for most of my adolescence. I thought Kate was so brilliant and I didn’t want to do it and not be good,” says Rooney.
