Actresses Rooney and Kate Mara have teamed up in a bid to get financial aid for a group of abandoned chimps.
The sisters recently travelled to Liberia with The Humane Society of the United States to visit more than 60 chimpanzees who were abandoned and left to die by the New York Blood Center a year ago.
The NYBC used the chimpanzees for invasive research before pulling all funding for their care in March, 2015. Now, Kate and Rooney are calling on officials at the Blood Center to renew their financial obligation to the apes.
A letter signed by the sisters reads: "People worldwide have been touched by these animals’ heartbreaking stories, and equally outraged at your irresponsible and inhumane actions.

Fantastic Four Villain Toby Kebbell Fears The Flop Blockbuster Has Adversely Affected His Career, Because He's No Longer Receiving Script After Script.
The actor, who played Doctor Doom in the movie, accepts the remake was not what it could have been, and although he was disappointed when the summer flop was savaged by critics and fans alike, he wasn't surprised.
But now Kebbell reveals the film roles offered to him dried up after the movie hit cinemas in August (15).
"As an actor, you're conscious that your career is at stake with each job, especially on these larger productions," he explains. "A film like that comes out, and I'm being sent maybe four scripts in a week, and those scripts go to zero when it doesn't come out successful (sic)."

Just as people began to write off veteran director Ridley Scott after a series of merely OK movies, the 77-year-old casually releases his most entertaining film in years. This sci-fi adventure is lithe, humorous, thrilling and genuinely moving. In other words, it's one of Scott's best films, mixing eye-catching visuals with a story that resonates with both emotion and deeper meaning. And it's also a lot of fun.
In the very near future, the first manned mission to Mars is caught off guard by a sudden storm. With their ship in danger, Commander Lewis (Jessica Chastain) orders the crew to evacuate, but in the chaos botanist Watney (Matt Damon) is knocked away and presumed dead. As Lewis and her team (Michael Pena, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan and Aksel Hennie) begin the long trek back to Earth, Watney wakes up alone on Mars and understands that he will need to survive until the next mission arrives in four years' time. But his habitat is only designed to last for 30 days, so he has a lot of work to do. Eventually, he thinks of a way to get a message back home to Nasa, letting them know he's alive. Now the experts (including Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sean Bean and Kristen Wiig) must figure out a way to rescue him before he runs out of food and water.
The story plays out on three fronts: with Watney using his expertise to survive, Lewis and her crew on their long journey back home, and the Nasa officials mounting a rescue mission. All three plot-strands are riveting, using convincing science to explore the conundrum while cranking up the emotional urgency of the situation. Intriguingly, the script never gives Watney a family back on Earth to sentimentalise things; the film simply doesn't need that. And Damon more than holds the audience's sympathy. He's funny, smart, tenacious and thoroughly identifiable, the kind of person we wish we would be in the same situation.

Actress Kate Mara Has Refused To Watch Her Superhero Movie Fantastic Four After It Received A Slew Of Scathing Reviews.
The House of Cards star plays Sue Storm, The Invisible Woman, in the movie, which garnered a series of bad write-ups from critics and suffered disappointing box office sales in the U.S. following its release in August (15).
Director Josh Trank even attacked his own film on the eve of the release, tweeting, "A year ago I had a fantastic version of this. And it would've received great reviews. You'll probably never see it. That's reality though."
Mara describes her director's actions as "highly disappointing" but insists she had a "good time" making the film despite a number of problems on set, telling British newspaper The Times, "It was a tricky shoot but you know... When you know when you're shooting it that a film isn't going to be what you want it to be (sic)? That was not the case at all."
