I seem to recall a time not too long ago when redhead sweetie Kate Mara wasn't above doing this simple gesture at a public appearance:
That's a beautiful smile, is it not? Also a gorgeous head of red hair to boot. Then somewhere down the line, Kate or someone affiliated with Kate decided that stone faces interspersed with somewhat bemused glares was the way to look, along with flattened down hair, shaped into uninteresting-looking and not very flattering dos. I'm not sure what the thinking was behind these rather ill-advised moves, but I think it may have had something to do with her sister Rooney Mara's decision to basically do the exact same thing with the persona she chooses to assume when dealing with the public. Is this some sort of sibling rivalry thing? I have no idea. It would be nice if she'd cheer up again though. Not that I don't enjoy looking at her now, but it's a lot more fun when she's willing to reciprocate with enjoyment of her own.
