Um…What? Rooney Mara Reveals She's "Grossed" Out By Pie, Never Tried It Until Last Year
She had to eat an entire pie for her latest film.
Tom Brady shocked the world when he revealed he's never eaten a strawberry or tried coffee before. Well, now Rooney Mara is causing a lot of head-scratching over her recent admission that, bizarrely, she had never eaten pie in her entire life until she was forced to while filming a pivotal scene from "A Ghost Story" last summer.
“Something about pie always grossed me out and I just never tried it before. And this came along and I tried making them switch it to something else, but [director David Lowery] really wanted it to be pie, so we did pie,” she told the Los Angeles Times.
The 32-year-old actress explained that she was a "really, really strange, picky child" and doesn't have a sweet tooth, so she never sampled the all-American dessert.
In the scene in the movie, Mara consumes an entire pie, shot mostly in one take. According to E! News, it was a gluten-free chocolate cream pie. (She follows a gluten-free and vegan diet; we're guessing the cream was non-dairy.)
So how was Mara's first experience eating the classic sweet treat? "That was my first and last pie," Mara told the Los Angeles Times.
Guess she wasn't into it.
