Rooney Mara REALLY Regrets Playing Tiger Lily In Pan — And Doesn't 'Ever Want To Be On That Side' Of Hollywood Whitewashing Again!
Many celebrities have already spoken out on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
And even though Rooney Mara has "a lot to say" about the lack of minority representation in Hollywood, she doesn't want her opinions to be reduced "to a sound bite."
In an interview with The Telegraph, the Carol actress opened up about her own experience with whitewashing — this time, a bit more candidly than she has in the past!
The 30-year-old understands why she got heat after being cast as Tiger Lily in 2015's Pan, a role that was originally Native American in JM Barrie's 1911 novel.
The Oscars are right around the corner and if you're anything like us, you're getting super curious about who has the best chance of taking home a gold statue!
Well, we've got another great bit of knowledge for you in your Oscar pool — who has won the most awards SO FAR??
There have already been 42 awards handed out by various guilds and critics circles. It stands to reason that whoever wins the most awards has an edge with the Academy too.

Rooney Mara Shares Her Surprising Experiences With Gender Pay Gap & Reveals Why We're Having The 'Wrong' Conversation!
We're so glad Rooney Mara is joining the gender pay gap movement!
In a recent interview with Deadline, Rooney opened up about her experiences with salary issues in comparison to her male counterparts. The beauty also took a minute to reflect on the important conversation about women's equality in Hollywood first sparked by Jennifer Lawrence's poignant essay in Lenny Letter.
Luckily for Mara, she has had only one instance of unexplained gender pay gap thanks to her preference for independent films where everyone is typically paid "equal". The actress also revealed there have been times where she has been paid more than men.
Obviously, the pay scale was NOT equal when Mara appeared in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo alongside Daniel Craig considering she was relatively unknown at the time:
"When I did Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, did Daniel Craig get paid more than me? Of course. He got paid a ton more than me, but he's Daniel Craig and no one knew who I was so I don't deserve to be getting paid what he's getting. He's the one putting asses in the seats, not me. I had never done anything, so that's just sort of the way that went."
Well, we guess that makes sense. As long as R.M. was comfortable with it that's all that matters!
Despite the Carol star's good fortune, she admits there's still something to be done about gender inequality. Not only does Rooney believe there's still progress to be made, she also thinks there needs to be a more analytic and thoughtful approach to the issue entirely:
Alicia Vikander Scores Big With A Best Supporting Actress Win At The 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards — Oh, & Accepts On Behalf Of Ex Machina Too!
It was a tight race for the award for Best Supporting Actress at Sunday's the Critics' Choice Awards. In an exciting turn of events, Alicia Vikander beat out award show vet Kate Winslet and snagged the coveted trophy.
We couldn't be more excited for Miz Vikander since she was an absolute scene-stealer in the 2015 flick The Danish Girl. Not to mention, the 27-year-old was trumped by the Steve Jobs actress at this year's Golden Globes. Oof!
Also, the wins kept coming in for the Swedish performer as her Sci-Fi project Ex Machina took home the prize for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie. Woo hoo!
The other nominees in the category were It Follows, Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Martian.
Be sure to ch-ch-check out her touching acceptance speeches for yourself (above) and (below)!
The honor! The glory! The snubs! (Don't worry, we'll get to that…)
Early Thursday morning, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed the most prestigious list in Hollywood — this year's nominations for the Oscars!
While there were plenty of great movies and performances this year, not everyone can get a nomination — though a certain Titanic seemed to make the cut!
Ch-ch-check out all of this year's nominees (below)!
50 Shades Of Grey & Adam Sandler Lead The Pack With The Most Razzie Nominations! Do YOU Agree With The List?
The nominations are in!
Well, 2015 had some of the best movies the industry has seen in some time. Unfortunately, there were also some pretty horrendous flicks too. No joke!
Thankfully, the Golden Raspberry Awards (AKA Razzies) has released its shortlist for the worst movies and performances of the year. Now we know what NOT to watch, phew!
Though, we can't be THAT surprised since 50SOG was slammed by the critics, despite making bank in the box office. Not to mention, Adam's Pixels is just the latest project from the funnyman to be taken down by the group.
In case you forgot, the Razzies are voted on by 900 members and the "winners" will be announced the day before the Oscars.
Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominees (below) and let us know if YOU think anyone is missing!
Brie Larson SO deserved this award!
At the Golden Globes, Brie took home Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama for her amazing and pivotal performance in Room. The win counts as Larson's first major award after years of fantastic work in television and film.
The beautiful actress shone on stage in her gorgeous Calvin Klein dress as she thanked her loved ones and costars in the movie. The blonde also took a moment to recognize the author who inspired the film, Emma Donoghue.
A big congrats to Larson — we have a feeling this won't be the last time we'll see Brie at an award show!
