Casting Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily in Pan is not a move that went over well anywhere, and since she’s doing press to promote the movie, which comes out this weekend, Mara is now answering questions about the casting and whitewashing of what should have been a high-profile role for a Native actress. Full Story

Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are enchanting in Carol

I know, I know, “enchanting” is a stupid word, but I don’t know how else to describe it. The US trailer for Carol, based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel about a mid-century lesbian romance, just came out and it IS enchanting. It’s so beautiful in its period detail and mustard-lit color scheme—giving it the look of an early Kodachrome photograph in which primary colors pop and everything else looks washed out and sallow—and with The Incomparable Cate doing a blown-out smoker’s voice in narration, it’s instantly evocative. Full Story

Cate Blanchett & Solange

Not shocking at all – they loved Todd Haynes’s Carol in Cannes. Cate Blanchett? Marvelous, as usual. And Rooney Mara’s performance is being called the best of her career too. They’re saying they could both be nominated for Oscars. Cate’s becoming like Meryl now. Whatever she does will earn her a nomination. Full Story

Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb are still together. And they were at Sundance. And that matters to the five of us who care about them, who would for sure rank them top 5 in a cool couple list…even though they are way too cool to be on a cool couple list. Rooney Mara and Theo James are together in Dublin working on a film called Secret Scripture directed by Jim Sheridan. Full Story

With New New Star Wars less than a year away, Disney continues with their plans to expand the Star Wars universe into a multi-franchise superbeast a la Marvel. The next movie in the works is a spin-off to be directed by Gareth Edwards, which is due on December 16, 2016. Details about the movie are scarce, but THR is reporting that Rooney Mara and Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany are testing this week for the female lead. Full Story

First look at Pan

Joe Wright is a good director. And I did like Hook, with Robin Williams. But this first look at Pan…an origin story… I have some concerns. One concern is Hugh Jackman’s hair. Can you see the wig line – glaringly – across the top of his head in several shots? These are the kinds of details that can become distracting. Full Story

Tiger Lily White

The last we heard of Joe Wright’s reimagining of Peter Pan, titled simply Pan, Garrett Hedlund had just signed on to play Captain Hook, which was very interesting. Since then, Hugh Jackman has been confirmed as the bad guy, Blackbeard—has Jackman ever played a villain before? I’m into it—and we’ve learned that the movie will start circa World War II and they will, in fact, be casting Peter as young boy (so much for Pan & Hook, Pirate Bros, booo). Full Story

Kate Mara showed up at the Los Angeles premiere of Her last night to support her sister, Rooney. It’s a thing now with these two. Even at an event like this, they won’t pose together. Is this fascinating to me, and only me, because I don’t have a sibling? I have an almost-sibling called Cat. Full Story

Remember, it’s photo assumption – highly UNscientific conclusions based only on one photographic moment that could be interpreted a million ways. Scarlett Johansson and Rooney Mara were together at the premiere of Her at the Rome Film Festival. Scarjo is “Her”, the voice. Full Story

Aloof AND Self-possessed

There’s a new Rooney Mara profile in the NYT Times magazine. She doesn’t call herself aloof this time. No, she doesn’t. But the word does appear in a list of words the writer cites as adjectives that have been used in the past to describe her. Which is why Rooney had to come up with something new…? I promise you, I tried. Full Story

Joaquin is in love

A trailer for Spike Jonze's Her was released today. It's a showcase for Joaquin Phoenix who plays a man who keeps to himself -- not a surprise -- and ends up falling in love with his ...smartphone? Siri? It's Scarlett Johansson's voice. I've always said she has the best voice. Joaquin Phoenix is mesmerising to watch -- whatever he's in. Full Story

Rooney’s three smiles

There may actually be four. Four smiles in 30 seconds! And with teeth too! Check out Rooney Mara’s ad for Downtown Calvin Klein directed by David Fincher, with whom she worked on Dragon Tattoo. So what makes Rooney smile? Bridges, the rain, children, and puppies. The whole thing is in slow motion, which I think is supposed to tell us that it’s super arty. Full Story

Rooney Mara and Kate Mara were at the CFDA Awards last night in New York. Rooney posed with Francisco Costa. She wore Calvin Klein. Kate wore Dolce & Gabbana. I haven’t been able to find any photos of the sisters together. If you see one, let me know. Duana has been paying particularly close attention to the Maras recently, noting first that they were both at the MET Gala last month and there were no pictures either and picking up the audio on Kate’s voice during The Hollywood Reporter Drama Queens roundtable when she referred to her sister being an actor too -- click here Full Story

Thank you, Nicole Kidman. After Emma Watson’s rather underwhelming Cannes carpet appearance last night, Thursday at the festival was rather lacking in dress porn. But Gran came through in the evening at the IFP and Calvin Klein party in black leather that looks like it’s stripped along the side. Full Story
