In a business where weight and shape are so closely scrutinized, it’s hard to find an actor or actress who isn’t committed to some type of restrictive diet. But Rooney Mara says she eats whenever and whatever she wants, summing her diet up with the simple phrase “I love to eat!”.

The “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” star claims to be hungry “all the time” and doesn’t even make an effort to stay away from carbs. So how does the petite actress keep her figure and maintain her 24″ waistline? Mara gives all the credit to her vegan lifestyle.

In a recent New York Post interview, she said “Of course I eat, I eat a lot. I love to eat. But I’m a vegan. I eat all the time. I even eat bread – especially if it’s good and if I get it free.”

Mara has not been outspoken about her veganism until now, but she has chosen vegan eats at events such as the Sundance Film Festival. During the festival, she also hosted a vegan dinner party for the cast of her film.
