I like traditions, and the national anthem is important.— Kate Mara
The most successful Kate Mara quotes that will inspire your inner self
Keeping your private life as private as possible is the smartest thing.
I thought [Johnny Wujek] was really cute.
And so, I was super shy about getting naked in front of him. I didn't want to show him my goods...because I thought he might be straight.
Whenever I dream about flying, it's the best feeling in the world.
I'm not interested in politics, or being a part of them.
I definitely do my homework and make sure that I know what's going on, and I'm responsible enough to be able to vote for people that I respect. But other than that, I've never been a part of the political world.
If I'm not on the red carpet or at a photo shoot, I never wear anything besides ChapStick. But I'll have a heart attack if I don't have my chapstick.
I wish no teams had cheerleaders. I find it more distracting than anything else.
Even if I'm eating healthy, I let myself indulge with french fries.
That's my favorite thing. You only live once!
I'm either at the movie theater, or I'm at home cooking - well, not really cooking because I don't cook, I usually have friends over who can cook, and they do the cooking. I'm sort of a homebody, even though I love going out to dinner and I love going to the movies. Those are my favorite things to do on a night off.
I hate being in Los Angeles when it's football season.
I want to be in New York. It just doesn't feel right if I'm away.
Rooting for the offense is the safe way to go. You win either way.
There's nothing worse than people who want to make you feel better when you are losing. I just want to smack them.
Pink is like the one color I say I hate, and yet somehow I end up wearing it.
Like, Michael Kors sent me a pink dress, and I'm like: 'So beautiful!' And I'm wearing it telling him 'I hate pink, why am I wearing this? It's really nice though.'
I'm still passionate now about my job, but when I first started out as a kid, I was so motivated. No one had ever acted in my family before, and my parents had no idea how to help with that. I would leave notes on my parents pillow every night at 13 saying, "Please help me find an agent!" Eventually it worked, so I relate to that go-getter mentality.
I want to do something crazy for a part - something I'd never even consider in real life.
I guess it's easier to get things made when you know the story you want to tell, you know the characters you want to play, and you know the filmmakers you want to tell them with.
All the actors I respect, especially old-Hollywood actors, the reason I think so many of them have had long careers is that there is a sort of mystery about them. You don't know what they do on Friday nights when they go home from work. You have no clue. You have this sort of fantasy about them.
I have a ridiculous fear of sharks but I'd jump in the water in a second for an amazing role.
Even when I was a kid, I had this insane head of flaming hair. It looked like a wig.
I don't choose my projects based on genre, I choose them based on the role and whether or not I've tackled that yet, based on the director and such.
In New York, you can just wake up and everything sorts itself out. I love that, not having a plan.
If 10 years ago I was told I'd be where I am now, I would've been pretty happy.
I've always wanted to do a period piece.
I remember telling the agent, 'I don't want to do anything but Broadway.
' She was like, 'That's not really possible because there is not that much Broadway. So I'll send you out on TV and stuff like that.'
We don't ask for opinions on our outfit all the time - but for a big of event, like the Emmys, absolutely. I actually sent my sister a picture of the [J Mendel] dress I wore to the Emmys before I chose it, and she was obsessed. She was like, "Oh, I want that." And I said, "Let me wear it first!"
I feel like I'm exactly where I should be.
Of course any actor is going to be happy to be nominated for an Oscar - absolutely - but I don't really think of it in that way. I've never really thought of my job in that way, because that's just a lot of pressure to be working towards one goal. I'm much more interested in finding roles that make me feel happy about going to work every day.
Everybody has to be responsible for their own actions - and if they do something wrong, I believe in paying for it.
I have so many friends who have no idea what they want to do.
They are out of college and working, but not sure they are doing what they want to do, which is normal.
