We absolutely adore Kate Mara, and we can’t wait to see her latest work in progress! ICYMI, Kate Mara and Shia LaBeouf star in Man Down, in which Mara plays LaBeouf’s wife, and it’s a pretty big deal for Mara. Why? Because he’s one of her favorite actors of all time.

Though it’s been a tough couple of years for Shia LaBeouf in the public eye, Mara explains that his commitment to his craft hasn’t lessened, and she admires him even more as a result.

In the interview with WWD, Mara even refers to LaBeouf as “one of the best actors of our generation.” That’s high praise. According to Kate Mara, LaBeouf’s passion comes to the forefront not just when he’s acting, but whenever he’s working with other people. He doesn’t do anything half way, and she admires him so much for it.

In Man Down, Shia LaBeouf is to explore his own childhood trauma, as the film’s theme relates to his own relationship with his father. We can also expect Mara’s commitment to the film to be just as impressive, as she’s given every project she’s worked on nothing less than 100%. We’re so pumped to see how this film turns out, and we’re feeling pretty warm and fuzzy to imagine a blossoming friendship between the two talented actors.
