We were fortunate to get an exclusive preview of Kate Mara gracing the cover of the May edition of Manhattan magazine. Kate spoke to Manhattan magazine about her role in “Fantastic Four,” growing up in New York and more. The talented actress looks beautiful on the cover wearing Miu Miu and Dior.
Kate grew up in New York and stated she loves it because she can go there and doesn't feel like her job surrounds her life. She added, “And I feel like it's easy to get lost in the energy of New York, and that's a really good thing.”
Her sister Rooney is also in the business and Kate said there is something about having the girl closest to her in her life also experiencing the exact same job. She reflected, “I know how unique that is. I don't take that for granted at all.”
Kate dished about her current role in “Transcendence.” She likes playing the head of a revolutionary group who is against technology in a world where technology is taking over, for good or bad. She was excited to be part of the film because it is an interesting subject she did not know a lot about.
With fans looking forward to “Fantastic Four,” Kate said the whole thing will be different from anything she has ever done. She loved director Josh Trank's take on it and is a fan of his last film, “Chronicle.” Kate reveals, “I like things that are rooted in reality and that are dark and not what you expect. And I think that that's probably what 'Fantastic Four' will be.”
