"It was really hard to come out of [character]," she said. "Right when we finished, my best friend got married and I went to her wedding, and one of the guests there was quite inebriated. He came over to me and he was trying to dance with me and he picked me up, and I guess I was still sort of in character and I just immediately grabbed his throat, and was like 'Put me down. I will hurt you,'" said Mara. A clip of the interview, courtesy of Vulture, is below.
