"I've never talked about it before," she admitted. "I married one of my costars, so I don't regret doing that movie at all. But do I wish I had responded differently to certain things? Yes, definitely."
Mara also claimed that, over the course of her career, she's had two "horrendous" experiences on the set — both with male directors.
"Have I not gotten along with a female director? Absolutely," she explained. "And was it not the greatest work experience? Sure. But there was never a time that I felt, This is happening because I'm a woman."
"Where, with the male directors, it 100% was only happening with me; it was a power dynamic thing. And on both of my bad experiences, the movies were 95% men and I was the only woman in the movie."
Mara also touchingly shared what she hopes her stepdaughter takes away from the roles she's chosen throughout her career: "Eventually she's going to be able to look at the work I've done. And now more than ever, I want it to mean something and for there to be a point to it."
