Spotlight on Rooney Mara: Just What Does She Eat, Anyway?

Rooney Mara: Just What Does She Eat, Anyway?

Continuing my series on celebrities and what they eat—yes, this was an ongoing series which I kind of left in the dust—I thought I would finally focus on a celebrity who is actually vegan, since I’m vegan and also wondering who’s rich and famous and doing the same thing this poor vegan is doing.

Anyway, Rooney Mara! She’s a talented young actress who has starred in such films as The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo, The Social Network, and Lion.

She actually has ties to the NFL. Rooney’s Mom’s family founded the Pittsburgh Steelers, while her Dad’s family founded the New York Giants. So, I assumed that her being vegan was the least thing on her mind aside from burgers and hot dogs.


Well, here’s the thing… I recently read she became 100% vegan about 3 years ago. Before that, I’m not sure, but many vegans do transition from a vegetarian diet.

Rooney Mara maintains her svelte figure with ease—even though she reportedly loves to eat!

“Of course I eat, I eat a lot. I love to eat. But I’m a vegan. I eat all the time. I even eat bread – especially if it’s good and if I get it free,” she mentioned in an interview with the New York Post.
