Rooney Mara Ready For LGBT Movies!

Rooney Mara, who stars in the new movie “Carol,” about a lesbian relationship, says “it’s time” for movies dealing with the LGBT experience.

“There’s a lot of people who go through that experience and there aren’t a lot of films in the past [that] have dealt with it,” she told us at the NYFF screening at Alice Tully Hall Friday.

The movies “Freeheld” and “The Danish Girl,” about transgender artist Lili Elbe, come out later this year.

Sandra Bernhard, who was in the audience, tells us of movies on these topics, “When people become more comfortable with things shifting, whether its race or sex or religion or gender, they make movies about it, TV shows, music,” she said. “That’s a good thing. Any time you make a . . . great piece of art, it opens people up.”
