Kate Mara, Whose Family Co-Owns the NY Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers, Supports Players Kneeling

Kate Mara is speaking out in support of NFL players who choose to kneel during the national anthem.

“I believe everybody has a constitutional right to stand, or kneel or sit during the national anthem, so, I stand by the player’s decision whatever that might be.”

While Mara has made a name for herself as an actress in both television and film, her family also happens to co-own the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants. She is a great-granddaughter of both Giants founder Tim Mara and Steelers founder Art Rooney, Sr.

Her words of support for players protesting during the anthem come on the heels of her uncle and Giants co-owner John Mara’s involvement in helping shape the NFL’s controversial new policy to fine teams if their players kneel during the anthem.

“I think certainly we all hope that our players stand for the anthem this year,” John Mara said during an interview in May with Sirius XM Radio. “I think it’s the right thing to do.”

Controversy aside, Kate Mara was on hand on Thursday night at New York City’s the Blond for AT&T’s party to celebrate the 25th season of NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV.

“It reminds me of my childhood,” she said. “Going to a Giants game in New York with my family on a Sunday to me that is the normal way and the most comforting way because you’re surrounded by family, and love, and a lot of passion.”

These days, she enjoys watching games at home with her husband, actor Jamie Bell. “Growing up it was like chicken fingers and fries in the family box. But I am a vegan, so now it’s more like water and fries.”

Mara co-starred on “House of Cards” and earned an Emmy nomination for her work as a journalist who was killed by Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) after they had an affair. She says she hasn’t watched the Netflix series much since then, but will now that Robin Wright is leading the show after Spacey was fired over accusations by several people of sexual harassment and assault.

“I love Robin Wright so much,” said Mara, who will next headline FX’s limited series adaptation of the indie film “A Teacher.” “I really cannot wait to see what her character does and what she does with the role this season. I am watching because I just love her and I am excited that it is her time.”

Guests at the party also included former Giants players Victor Cruz and Justin Tuck as well as “Mayans M.C.” actor Gino Vento and Bridget Kelly of “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.”

Kate talks about veganism and more to Animal Equality

Kate talks about veganism and more to Animal Equality

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.”

Kate Mara Gives a Voice to Untold Stories

ET Online – In the film Chappaquiddick, Kate Mara doesn’t get much screen time as campaign aide Mary Jo Kopechne, who drowned in a Massachusetts pond on July 18, 1969, when she became trapped inside an Oldsmobile driven off a bridge by U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy (portrayed here by Jason Clarke). “This movie is not Mary Jo’s movie, obviously; it’s Ted’s movie,” Mara tells ET. But when the actress does appear onscreen, she makes the most of it, giving justice to a woman whose life became a footnote in the scandal that followed after Kennedy waited 10 hours to report the accident.

“It was a story that was largely swept under the rug when it happened, and she was not painted in the greatest light with the media,” Mara continues. “I think that it’s important we show who she was.” And speaking to the timeliness of today’s political climate as our president’s administration is being investigated by the FBI as well as facing allegations of affairs with multiple women, and Hollywood is faced with the Time’s Up movement, she stresses the “importance of shedding the light on untold stories, specifically about women.”

Kate Mara on Another Political Death

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.

Kate Visits Popcorn With Peter Travers

Kate was on Popcorn With Peter Travers this week to promote Megan Leavey! Before the interview even began, Peter stated that this is the performance of Kate’s career, to which she hilariously replied “This is actually the perfect review, I will leave”. Kate explains that many aspects of the script attacted her to the project, like the fact that the story was about a female in the military, which is specially rare. The beginning of Megan’s journey sounded relatable to her, seeing as “she didn’t really know what to do with her life. […] Everyone can relate to that”. She describes Megan, her character, as a “kind of weak human who finds her voice, and finds her strength through joining the Marine Corp and also through finding that she’s really quite gifted at dog handling and forming this bond with this incredible canine Marine”. The video is about 20 minutes long, so they talk a lot more about the film. In my humble opinion, it is definitely worth the watch.
