    Rooney Mara First Ate Pie Last Year And My World Has Turned Upside Down


    This is Rooney Mara. She's an Oscar-nominated actor who is widely regarded as one of the most talented people of her generation.

    And up until last year, she had also apparently NEVER TRIED PIE.

    Good, ol' fashioned, sweet, delicious pie.

    OK, lemme break this down. Rooney is an upcoming movie called A Ghost Story and in one scene she eats an entire pie (aka, my Friday nights).


    In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Rooney dropped this bombshell and honestly I can't stop thinking about it:

    It was such a unique way of showing grief, we’ve never seen anything like that before. And I’d actually never had pie before, that was my first and last pie.

    Wait, what? WHAT? Pie! It's so delicious! It's all pie-y and stuff! But Rooney explained that she was just never into sweet things:

    I just don’t really have a sweet tooth and I was a really, really strange, picky child. 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 David really wanted it to be pie, so we did pie.
