Kate Mara is quite the comedienne! The House of Cards actress, 31, is featured in a new interview in Playboy, where she spoke about a prank she played on her costar Kevin Spacey.

Mara played the enterprising young journalist Zoe Barnes in the Netflix series, stripping for sex scenes with Spacey, 54, who plays political heavyweight Francis Underwood.

"I’d read all the scripts way in advance, so nothing shocked me," Mara said about the level of nudity and sex in the show. "It just happened, and it wasn’t uncomfortable. From day two of working with Kevin, I found him just as playful as I am. He would definitely up my game."

"I tried to get him to laugh by wearing pasties with his face on them," the Fantastic Four actress confessed. "Of course, because Kevin wants to win whatever the game is and because he always wins, he did not laugh."

"He waited until the director said 'cut' and then he laughed," she continued. "Kevin has an amazing sense of humor, but he’s also a great professional and he’s really f--king good at it."
