Kate Mara may star in the new movie “10 Years” — opposite Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson and Justin Long — but Mara opted to skip her own high school reunion.
“I’m an idiot,” the 29-year-old actress tells the New York Daily News. “We started shooting ‘10 Years’ a month [after her own reunion], so I should’ve gone for research. But the thought of trying to remember everybody’s names gave me such anxiety! My older brother and I graduated the same year, so he went and gave me the scoop.”
Mara — the sister of “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” actress Rooney Mara and the granddaughter of former Giants co-owner Wellington Mara — admits that she doesn’t feel too connected to her own high school experience.
“I was shy and really hated school,” Mara says. “I was focused on acting, and couldn’t wait to get out, so I graduated a year early and started working.”
This has me wondering: how do/did you feel about 10 year reunion? If it’s already happened, did you go? How was it? And if it has yet to happen, are you in or happily skipping?
