Rooney Mara prefers to be a "nomad".
The 'Pan' star insists she would rather be on her own during downtime as she spends so much time with other people when on a movie set.
She shared: "I like being alone. I need a lot of alone time as a human. And especially on a movie set when you're around people all day long. So it's actually kind of nice to go home to a hotel and be alone and unwind.
"But, of course, it gets lonely. I'm constantly either in hotels or somewhere else. But I like it. I might get tired of it at some point, but for now I like being a nomad."
However, the 30-year-old actress enjoyed working alongside her "idol" Cate Blanchett on their latest film 'Carol'.
She gushed to Interview magazine: "She's just so incredible. It was pretty easy to pretend to be enamoured by her. And she's quick and witty and funny. She's very confident. It's amazing.
"Usually it's not that great to meet your idols and work with them; it's kind of a letdown. This definitely wasn't. She's much different than I had in my head, but kind of better, in a way. It was also obviously terrifying."
