Kate posed for international animal rights nonprofit Animal Equality‘s Their Voice Summer 2018 issue, and also opened up about her thoughts on equality, Pose, and veganism.
On what inspired her to become vegan: “I have always been an animal lover and was a vegetarian for a while off and on. When I read my friend Kimberly Snyder’s book called The Beauty Detox Solution it solidified my belief that we aren’t meant to consume animal products (whether you’re an animal lover, activist or not). Learning about the process that our bodies go through to digest meat and dairy was eye opening for me. My love of animals and animal activism has grown over the years so it was a no brainer for me to become a vegan. It took me a little while to fully give up cheese; otherwise, it was easy.”
On Pose: “Pose is a show that features the largest LGBTQ cast and crew, on and off camera. It explores the ballroom culture in NYC in the 1980’s. I’m excited to be a part of a series that will educate people about an amazing community that has been marginalized for so long. It’s funny and heartbreaking, but at the end of the day the show is about family and how no matter where you come from or what gender you may be, we all just want to belong to something and feel love.”
On advocating for animal and human rights: “I feel it is my moral obligation to give a voice to animals because they cannot fight for themselves. They do not choose to be ripped from their families or trapped in cages their entire lives. If we aren’t trying to help others (whether human or animal) and give back in some way, then we shouldn’t expect the world to be a very nice place to live.”

Lots of people talk about living in the moment, but only a few master the experience. Kate Mara is one of them. “I’m not a person who plans ahead,” says the actor, 35. “I enjoy the here and now as much as I can. I’m at my best when I’m not worrying about the future.”
That strategy is clearly a winning one, because Kate’s life these days is pretty fantastic. Last summer she married her boyfriend of two years, actor Jamie Bell, becoming stepmother to his 4-year-old son. “I love knowing that I have a partner for life,” Kate says. “I feel very proud to call Jamie my husband and to have made that commitment to him.” Her career is also soaring. Kate is starring in the movie Chappaquiddick, and she’s playing a leading role in Pose, a groundbreaking musical drama debuting this summer about life in New York City in the 1980s, featuring the biggest transgender cast ever on a TV series.
Kate gave an interview to NY Times as part of the Chappaquiddick promotion. On this interview, she also talked for the first time about how was learning about Kevin Spacey’s sexual misconduct. Check in our gallery the photoshoot, and you can read the full interview below.
Kate Mara isn’t onscreen much in “Chappaquiddick,” John Curran’s account of the maelstrom surrounding July 18, 1969, when Senator Edward M. Kennedy drove his Oldsmobile off a narrow bridge into a pond on the Massachusetts island, leaving the scene and his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, who died. And effectively killing his presidential aspirations.
As Kopechne, Ms. Mara was determined to find justice for a campaign aide who, after her death, was reduced by some to a groupie who was having an affair with the married Kennedy, played here by Jason Clarke. (“Chappaquiddick” opens on Friday, April 6.)
“Like a lot of people, I’m fascinated with the Kennedys and their history and their achievements and the tragic stories that follow them,” Ms. Mara said. But she insisted on portraying Kopechne “as the brilliant, hard-working woman that she was and not just some tabloid story.”
It isn’t the first time Ms. Mara’s character has suffered at the hand of politics. As the dogged D.C. reporter Zoe Barnes in “House of Cards,” she slept with the House majority whip, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), who pushed her in front of a train once he was tagged for the vice presidency.
This summer, she’ll play a 1980s New Jersey housewife whose husband works for the Trump organization in FX’s “Pose,” which is currently shooting in New York.
As a snowstorm approached, Ms. Mara, 35 — chatty in bare feet in the downtown Manhattan apartment where she’s living temporarily with her husband, Jamie Bell, and her elderly Boston terrier, Bruno — discussed her harrowing scenes as Kopechne and the recent sexual assault allegations against Mr. Spacey.
Here are edited excerpts from the conversation.
She spoke to the magazine about her desire to help create conversations among people.
“I feel a moral obligation to make things that somehow create conversations among people. I think that is the whole point of art anyway, whether it is film or a painting, or whatever, to bring people together and to talk. I’ve done quite a few political projects, but to me it doesn’t have to be, it can be emotional in a lot of ways. Right now with this new series [Pose] Ryan Murphy is breaking a lot of ground with an amazing trans cast that really does reflect that conversation of what’s happening in today’s world.”

Hello! First of all, sorry for the lack of updates. Been dealing with offline issues, which is gladly sorted now.
Kate started this week to promote Chappaquiddick, the film directed by John Curran and starred by Jason Clarke and Kate Mara, that revisits the 1969 Ted Kennedy scandal.
On July 18, 1969, Sen. Ted Kennedy drives his car off of a bridge on Massachusetts’ Chappaquiddick Island. The accident results in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne, a 28-year-old campaign strategist who worked for Kennedy. The ongoing investigation into the mysterious and scandalous events forever alters his political legacy — and ultimately changes the course of presidential history.
During the premiere (held on Wednesday in Los Angeles), Byron Allen, Entertainment Studios CEO and co-founder and executive producer of the film, said some powerful people pressured studio not to release it. “Unfortunately, there are some very powerful people who tried to put pressure on me not to release this movie. They went out of their way to try and influence me in a negative way. I made it very clear that I’m not about the right, I’m not about the left. I’m about the truth.”
Kate said to Variety she was more concerned with showing that Kopechne was more than what the 1969 articles that Mara read depicted her to be. The actress was also worried about how Kopechne’s family would receive the film. According to Mara, it was important “to make sure we show her in a way that is respectable and that honors her in some small way.”
Our gallery was updated with pictures from the premiere and after party, and also from the visit Kate and Jason did to SiriusXM on Monday.
