On the occasion of a typically grim portrait snapped at the Oscar nominees’ luncheon, we decided to look into Ms. Mara’s pre-cyberpunk period–turns out she does know how to smile.

Or at least she did at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival! Fun fact: the oldest result on a Getty Images search for the term “Rooney Mara” is a 1937 shot of her ancestors, the owners of two professional sports teams, comparing a race card. With that lineage, is it any wonder our Rooney wouldn’t eventually act out?
