Bedford native Kate Mara was honored with a 2015 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future award on Monday. But everybody seems to be talking about the “House of Cards” star’s hair of the present: a brand-new pixie cut.
Mara debuted the short ‘do, which replaced her usual bob, on the red carpet of the ceremony held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, where the Fox Lane grad was the woman of the hour.
“I did it for a role,” Kate Mara is quoted as saying.“It’s definitely a new look for me, but I’m always happy to change my look because I think that’s helpful when playing a new character.”
Speaking of roles, Mara has been landing a lot of those lately. Rooney Mara’s sis, 32, will appear in the upcoming reboot of “Fantastic Four,” playing Sue Storm. You can also catch her in “The Martian,” hitting theaters in November. The on-the-rise star is currently shooting the sci-fi thriller “Morgan” in Belfast.
