Face Off: Kate Mara vs. Rooney Mara

Jan. 7, 2013by: Droz

It was a rare tie game in last week's Face Off between Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence. Looked like everyone was divided on Kate's mix of obvious sex appeal and ticking clock career, and Jennifer's obvious talent and "butterface" issues. It was a tough call, though I did manage to side with Kate. We tend to have at least one story on her in any given week, so I guess that means we really like her. Might not be the best way to make a choice, but it's better than a settling for a tie, which I hate to do. Much rather let you people tie it up.

This week we're talking about sisters. Pretty sure everyone has, at one time or another, been fascinated with the idea of hottie sisters. Maybe a girl you were dating had a hot sister. Or maybe the sisters are famous actresses like Kate Mara and Rooney Mara. Different in many respects and similar in others, the one thing these two share are a fantastic set of genes which have produced two gorgeous women. Now we must decide which Mara sister is the hottest. So let's see which sister is a keeper.

Beauty

It's interesting how even though both these women are quite different, they still share certain features in common. Both of Irish and Italian origin, it seems like Kate got a bit more of the Irish genes, thus her lovely red hair. That's a big selling point for me, but Kate's also got certain something about her face that's speaking my language.

Rooney got more of the Italian side, which I also like. She's got great eyes and some of that red hair as well. I thought she was plenty beautiful enough to permanently enrapture the richest 20-something on the planet when I first saw her in THE SOCIAL NETWORK. Maybe it's that harsh transformation into Lizbeth Salander that's skewing my view, but she still falls a little short of her sister for me.

Body

Kate might be different from her sister in the face, but their bodies are quite uncannily similar. Tough to make a call between them in this area and I don't think I'd want to. Kate's got a nice, tight little body on her that I can't find a thing to complain about. Pretty much a guaranteed winner here.

Call me a prude, but I hate a lot of tattoos and piercings on women. So it says a lot about the quality of Rooney's body that I was totally down for her in those DRAGON TATTOO nude scenes. Even covered with fake ink, girl was still freaking hot riding James Bond like a race horse.

Appeal

Watching some of the interviews and talk show appearances Kate has done, I get the impression that Kate is a genuinely fun and flirty kind of woman. I tend to gravitate toward such women, for the obvious ego boosts they provide and the fact that they just tend to be a lot more personable and approachable. I like down-to-earth folks and Kate feels that way to me.

I get the impression that Rooney is more down-to-business than down-to-earth, at least as far as her public persona goes. She doesn't come across as mean or cold in any way. She seems perfectly sweet and nonthreatening. She's just not as "life of the party" as her sister. I wouldn't call that a bad thing, but in terms of personal preference, I like her sister's approach better.

Career

It doesn't make any sense to me that Kate isn't a bigger star. She's such a cool girl, a capable actress and a definite hottie. She's been around for years and had a few promising opportunities as an actress, yet she's still often 30th man down on the casting list and is playing second fiddle to her younger sister. How did that happen? Shitty agents maybe, I don't know. Whatever it is, I don't like it.

Possessing one of those Hollywood dream roles has vaulted Rooney into the big times. With at least two more follow ups to DRAGON TATTOO in the works and probably a ton of stuff happening on the side as a result of landing that role, Rooney's future looks pretty good.

Kate

She might not be as successful or recognizable as her younger sister, but Kate Mara is still my Mara sister of choice. Hot, cute, redheaded, funny, charming - she's just about the perfect girl for me.

That's my choice. Which one do you like?

Rooney

I'd give Kate the body, just barely, but all the rest would have to go to Rooney. She's super attractive if you ask me.

That"s a close call but Kate Mara is cuter, she was good in american horror story, among many other things. I wouldn't say Rooney Mara has a better career because she's only had 2 significant roles so far and kate mara has had many. But Rooney Mara looked really great(Dragon Tattoo) naked for a skinny chick.

Rooney all the way!

Kate over Rooney for beauty? Are you kidding me!?!?! Rooney is very realistic in her beauty and looks, and way more mysterious about it and her body in so many more ways than Kate. She is like that unbelievably cute, quite, and smart girl I would always see in the school library. Or like that sexy young innocent and seductive looking librarian. Kate doesn't have any of that appeal or character.

Kate is pretty for sure but Rooney is unique looking.
Also Italians have red hair too and not all Irish people are redheads so that bit about who got more of what heritage is silly.

No it isn't. Italians are primarily blonde and brown haired. Irish, while maybe not predominantly redhead, have considerably more redheads running in their genes than any other race in the world. The Mara sisters are descended, in part, from Irish immigrants whose original last name was O'mara, an inevitably Irish name.
I can, however, vouch for your comment, since I have some red hair which comes from my Italian side.

Kate is more traditional pretty, but there is something about Rooney that floats my boat. Her gothed up ways in Dragon Tattoo really revved my engine.

For career, I would actually go with Kate. Rooney hasn't been in anything good that wasn't made by Fincher so she can't really hold her own ground in that territory.

Kate

Kate on American Horror Story as Hayden is scary and sexy at the same time. Rooney is gorgeous and sexy too. Rooney is a better actress and more accomplished (Social Network, Dragon Tattoo) But I am slightly leaning to Kate. Very slightly.

There isn't anything remotely similar about their bodies, except the color of their skin.
Also, I don't understand how or why you equate "down-to-earth" with "life-of-the-party", which are polar opposites.
That said, while I have nothing against Rooney, I don't have anything for her either.
My vote goes to Kate.

Rooney because looking at Kate does nothing for me at all.
So next time how about Zooey Deschanel versus Emily Deschanel?
