While Kate Mara seemed happy enough to appear in Law & Order and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, her sister was apparently left none too pleased by her guest role in the latter.
The elder Mara played Jessica DeLay, in the 2006 episode "Fat", describing the role and episode in
general as "so stupid" in an interview with Allure. "Me and my boyfriend — although I [didn't] look old enough to have a boyfriend — went and beat up these fat people, and at the end of the show you find out that I used to be obese and I hate fat people. It's ridiculous. Who would ever do that? Who would beat someone up because they're fat?"
Mara went on to clarify her comments to The Huffington Post. "If anything, I didn't mean that the storyline was ridiculous; I meant that humanity is ridiculous," she said. Whatever you say, Rooney.
