Rooney Mara Regrets Playing Tiger Lily in Pan, Particularly in Light of #OscarsSoWhite

Rooney Mara, who has received an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in Carol, has hesitated to weigh in on the ongoing #OscarsSoWhite controversy in part because of her regrets about taking the role of Tiger Lily in Pan. Warner Brothers' 2015 cinematic adaptation of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan didn't do well at the box office, but even before its release, the film came under fire for casting Rooney Mara as a Native American character.

Watch the First Trailer For Pan, aka the Most Racist Of Recent Peter Pan Projects

Clap if you are so sick of this shit.

Joe Wright's Pan follows the grand tradition of live-action films revealing a "new side" of familiar characters from the J.M. Barrie tale.
