Kate Mara Warns Family About On-Screen Nudity

Kate MaraKate Mara's family don't approve of her stripping on screen.

The 30-year-old actress is currently starring in the Netflix original series House of Cards alongside Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright and admits she has to warn her parents if she takes her clothes off in any of the scenes:

"They [my parents] don't love it that I occasionally have to take off certain items of clothing. We sort of have an unspoken rule of, if my character on House of Cards or during a photo-shoot I have to be in my underwear or something, I sort of send out a family text about it. 'Beware of the first 30 seconds of House of Cards - you will be disturbed.'"

Kate has always tried to reassure her family about her on-screen antics and says her phrase "It's just acting dad" has become so popular in her household, her father has named his racehorse after it.

House of Cards 4K

Netflix's Neil Hunt wants to make 4K streaming a thing in your home. The Netflix exclusive House of Cards, headlined by Kevin Spacey, is the current target for 4K streaming, says Hunt. As it turns out, much of the series was shot in 4K.

"Our own original House of Cards was shot in 4K," Hunt said to The Verge. "It's being mastered in full HD, but the raw footage, or a good chunk of it, was shot in 4K, and we hope to have some House of Cards 4K encodes later this year." Hunt believes 4K "will likely be streamed first before it goes anywhere else," and he plans to deliver the ultra high definition format through Netflix within the next couple of years.
