Rooney Mara doesn't feel like she's raising her son in a 'two-actor household.'

The 'Infatuation' actress has two-year-old River with her fiancé Joaquin Phoenix and although they live in a 'creative household' she is fortunate to only work infrequently and be able to spend as much time as possible with her son. 'I love [motherhood]. I love it so much. I think it's the best thing in the world. I mean, it sounds so cliche when you talk about it, but clichés exist for a reason,' Mara said. 'I have a very privileged life... Motherhood is a big challenge even if you have a privileged life.' I'm so lucky to have the choice to be with him most of the time, to be able to say, 'Oh, I only go to work once a year when it feels right, and other than that I do this'. Most people don't have that opportunity,' she continues, adding, 'It doesn't feel like a two-actor house because I haven't worked for the first three and a half years that we were together. Since we were together I've basically only worked once or twice, and the one was really small and short. It feels like a creative household, we talk about creative things all the time.'

The 37-year-old actress admitted working on her latest film 'Women Talking' was an 'important experience' for her because it was her first job after having her son. Speaking to Joaquin's sister Rain Phoenix on her 'LaunchLeft' podcast, Rooney said: 'It was kind of my first job as a mom and so it was a really important experience for me because I wasn't sure if I can work, if I can do both.'
