Photo Coverage: Rooney Mara's Vogue Cover
Rooney Mara, Vogue
Rooney Mara's February issue of Vogue and the cover features a non-smiling but softer picture of the young star. Mara explains inside:
"The thing is [photo shoots are] kind of an annoying part of the job-because I'm not a model, and I don't want to be," says the actress. "I didn't try to be a style icon. I'm just not that interested in that world. But it does matter, and either I can fight that or I just have to accept that it is a part of my job, and I may as well wear things that I like and that represent me."
"Why should I 'fake smile'?" she adds. "It feels disingenuous to me. I want to smile when something happy happens, so if I do smile, you know it's real."
