Rooney Mara: Oscar nom, dating Charlie McDowell and more
McDowell has been Mara's beau since at least August 2010, when the two were photographed kissing before Rooney departed for Sweden to begin filming "Dragon Tattoo." He is the son of "Clockwork Orange" star Malcolm McDowell and actress Mary Steenburgen. We had actually forgotten those two were even a couple at some point.
We're looking forward to Rooney walking the Oscars red carpet. We sincerely hope that with all the success "Dragon Tattoo" has had that the filmmakers and actors push ahead with making the other two.
But the first thing on the horizon for Mara is "Lawless," which boasts a star-studded roster. It is written and directed by fellow Oscar nominee Terrence Malick and stars Ryan Gosling, Cate Blanchett and Christian Bale in addition to Mara.
