Rooney Mara continues her alienation campaign

"You kind of learn to self-sabotage with things you don't want to get. Sometimes you don't want to get something but you do a really good job and you get in anyway. That's kind of [what happened] with A Nightmare on Elm Street - I didn't even really want it. And then I went in [to audition] and I was like, [whispering] 'Fuck. I definitely got that'."

Whatever happened to just saying something like, "I was out of work and need the money and experience. I wouldn't be where I am now without having taken these parts and I have no shame over it"?

How can a working actor read that and not hate her?

R1, keep reading the article. "out of work and need the money"??? She is an NFL heiress who's family is worth BILLIONS! Do you really think she needs the money or the work? She is definition of overhyped and she needs to get over herself. That and she needs to start antibiotics soon just to protect her from whatever STD David Fincher is gonna give her.

I look forward to seeing this film, but if she doesn't shut up, people will get so annoyed the will skip the film.

Fincher needs to tell her to stop talking to any press or do any interviews or even mention acting.

i'm in the minority but i find her honesty refreshing. i mean most actors are thinking that, at least she has the balls to say it. she may be privileged, but i find her bluntness oddly refreshing.

by Anonymousreply 701/03/2012

She can be so blunt, because she comes from a rich home. That's like admiring Gwyneth Paltrow for dealing with motherhood so easily (when the help does all the groundwork). Their point of view comes from a place where potential negative consequences were never an issue.

I was totally bored by Rooney and David C. in this movie. I read the book and though it wasn't the best ever, it was enjoyable.

The best adaptation to a thriller to date in my opinion was Damon in the Bourne series. I found all of them thoroughly enjoyable.

I will wait for cable to see the next installment, if it gets made considering the poor box-office to date. It was really some boring shit. What the book did was capture the essence of Sweden and its people. I think that's why it took so long in the book to build. This movie could have been shot anywhere. It just lacked that certain something. Rooney is no young Streep. She had only one facial expression throughout the whole movie. As a result, you don't get a true sense of Lisbeth as you do in the book. Too one dimensional.

The movie's boxoffice ($60 million so far) isn't "poor", though it's not what the studio expected given that the film cost at least $90 million to make. Has it been released to the international market yet?

I'm a little surprised at the soft grosses in the U.S., though. Given the number of people who read the novel, I would have expected better.

Is it because a lot of people watched the DVDs of the Swedish films? Not all that many people went to see them in the theater.

r36, it cost over $100M and so far, $60M hardly recoups. I know we haven't accounted for future overseas or video. However, that dreck, aka, Tom Cruise's IM franchise has killed GWTDT in boxoffice.

I saw her on the ANOES panel at Wonder-Con just before the movie was released. The panelists -- including Katie Cassidy and that guy from The Terminator TV series -- were chirping away and engaging the audience. Mara was mute the entire time.

The Terminator guy (I've blanked on his name and don't feel like looking him up -- the one who people say is gay) egged her on to say something. He said something similar to: "You're Heather fucking Langenkamp in this film! Say something!" She finally looked up from the table and made this idiotic grin. That was it.

I don't consider burning bridges and alienating pretty much everyone she's ever worked with to be "playing the game." Most actors/actresses learn how to say the right things in order to get more work in the industry, not less. Her candor may be calculated in that she's trying to cultivate an edgy persona, but it's candor nonetheless. Unfortunately for her, it just makes her come across as a little too enamored with the sound of her own voice.

My biggest issue with her "candor" is she comes across like the stereotypical rich asshole. She did not have to take these substandard roles to earn a living. I'm sure there are other actresses who would have jumped at the chance to play the parts she's trashing because they needed to pay their bills. It's like the rich kid "starting at the bottom" in daddy's company, everybody knows with your background and connections you won't be at the bottom too long.

She needed to take parts in order to build a resume and get noticed. Which is what most actors have to do. But most of them don't then criticize those projects in public. They think it, but they don't say it out loud - at least not to the press, who can't wait to leap on stuff like this.

I agree with R64 but I don't think actors need to feel self-conscious about it. I mean, it's not like she made A Certain Sacrifice.

I initially hated the Nightmare remake as well, then I watched it again.

The second time I saw it I read it as a psychological exploration of the effects of child sexual abuse with horror elements grafted onto it. Maybe you have to have been a victim to "get" it (I was and I do).

I was struck at how bold it really was, but of course it went over the heads of most who saw it as just a silly, maudlin horror movie.

Whether Rooney or anyone else likes it or not when I watched it through that prism I actually found it audacious and brilliant.

That director knew exactly what he was doing and exactly what he was trying to say, whether his vision was accepted by the masses or not.

by Anonymousreply 9001/10/2012

[r89] olivia was illiminated because she is already the top suspect for anther bi, and also ted said that chuck has oscar buzz and has been in a film with rashida jones. that coupled with all the other clues pretty much knocked out everyone except for rooney and emma roberts, who has no oscar buzz whatsoever and as far as i know has not recently dyed her hair for a role.

some of the clues that pointed to rooney: ted mentioned "even if she doesn't get an oscar" obviously rooney has had some oscar buzz, and ted likes to mention that every time he mentions her in an article he mentioned the person having hollywood by the family jewels which could refer to mara being football royalty he mentioned that she american in the most rarefied sort of way, again referring to rooney's east coast, old money family. the actress currently has dyed hair he refers to her as a fashionista with a fashionista figure and striking cheek bones, and in the infamous vogue article the costume designer likened rooney and her features to a model, and also rooney's been labeled a fashionista since press for gwtdt started, along with the line for h&m. the actress has been in a movie with rashida jones, rooney and rashida were both in tsn

rooney has been emailed as a guess a few times and ted has not responded. he also mentioned in one email that fincher and rooney both have vices, but they are unrelated to eachother. daniel craig is already a suspect for another bv, and it's not the one about the b list actress.

the only thing that's a little off is rumors of dating co-stars, however after that bi about the b list actress there are obviously rumors about her and craig, who doesn't have a bad body by any means. and also there were photos from lawless film testing with rooney and ryan gosling looking very close, and that had some people a buzz. gosling is definitely known for his abs.

the only thing that doesn't make sense is that rooney has a bf who she's been dating for almost a year, and ted doesn't mention whether or not chuck beards, or if that she's bisexual with a preference for women.

i have no clue about fincher. he definitely comes off as creepy, though. and although i believe he and rooney didn't have an affair, i do believe he fucked with her psychologically. the way she dotes over him like an insecure school girl and the way he talks about her is incredibly odd. he loves to imply that he had her fate in his hands and seems to always bring up how the studio didn't want her, and even mentioned how they referred to her as a trust fund baby in one interview. i think he may have really fucked with that girl's head.

as far as mara goes, she's been listed as the top suspect to that bi for a few weeks. however the bf is weird, unless she's bearding. but why beard with someone so basic and unknown? although he is the son of malcom mcdowell, but still. there was someone on hollywood elsewhere making claims that she was a closeted lesbian and has been dating a director for a while, and that the fact she is so closeted could hurt her oscar chances. which is odd because ted c stated in his bi that the actress preferred sleeping with women with power like directors and producers. but that could very well have been some deluded asshole.

just the way rooney describes the process of auditioning sounds like he played with her head. jerking her around for 2 months and constantly bringing up how no one wanted her for the role, including himself at one point. she said that the day she found out she got the part, fincher called her into his office and interrogated her for two hours about whether she was strong enough to handle such a role, only to pull out an ipod with a press release revealing she got the part. talk about head games. even craig described their relationship as "fucking weird." i don't think it's sexual, but it is definitely a manipulative power trip of some kind. fincher seems like he would totally get off on jerking around a young, inexperienced actress like mara, who was obviously willing to do anything to portray the character and had no real experience with working with a big name director.

"Hell of an actress?" If the key to being a good actress is looking moody and mumbling your lines.

At least Rooney is not an airhead or a bimbo. She wants to grow as an actress. She has the Audrey Hepburn quality to her.

Ms. Mara will NEVER be part of any "Fappening" either. No nudie pics of her--she is way too discreet.

I like Kate. Rooney is goony.

Rooney Mara did appear nude in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," and "Side Effects."

Then again, I don't see Rooney posing nude for Playboy in the near future.

by Anonymousreply 11411/23/2014

Yes, in her movies, which is quite a different thing, of course. That's work. But she's too discreet to allow private nude pictures of her to be hacked. It's not going to happen. (She's too skinny for most straight guys to take much of an interest anyway.)

Someone must have watched "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" today--I also saw one or two David Fincher threads on the front page.

I have one question for anyone on here to answer.

Does anyone think that Rooney Mara will ever play a love interest of Morris Chestnut or Taye Diggs in a movie down the road?

Check out Rooney in the "Pan" trailer. Her outfit is hideous.

by Anonymousreply 12211/26/2014

Rooney should be very grateful that "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" brought her out of obscurity. It doesn't matter how long she will be an actress but the role of Lisbeth Salander will be remembered by the public the most.

I can't believe that Rooney used to hate what she looked like and dressed like before TGWTDT. That is Hollywood transformation for you.

by Anonymousreply 12411/27/2014

Why does the Pan trailer look so cheap? It looks slightly better than the Nbc's Peter Pan trailer.

Wright said he wanted a multi-cultural twist and a complete retelling of the origin of Peter Pan. Hmm...okay.

So far Rooney hasn't had to defend herself about playing Tiger Lily because Pan doesn't come out until July of 2015.

Wouldn't this be the sort of thing Rooney should contact her agent about? Anyway, the Swedish miniseries of the Millennium Trilogy is widely available, making the US remakes kind of pointless.

by Anonymousreply 13712/14/2014

Rooney must be pissed right now with Amy Pascal because they are giving her the funky go around.

She probably knows now that the sequels to TGWTDT will never happen.

Rooney Mara: South Sudan's hope survives year-old war

When most people think of South Sudan, if they think of it at all, they imagine poverty and war. They imagine a world and people that are far removed from the everyday life that most of us reading this are lucky enough to enjoy. But that was not my experience in the world's youngest nation.

What I saw on my three trips through South Sudan were people just like you and me. People with desires and needs. People in love. Mothers and fathers. Sisters and brothers. Friends and enemies. People with resilience, determination. But above all -- hope.

A year ago Monday, conflict again erupted in South Sudan. Since then, thousands of people have been killed, nearly 2 million people have been forced to flee their homes, and 6 million South Sudanese -- almost half the country -- have found themselves in desperate need of aid.

Last week, as I traveled through Mingkaman, a small village in South Sudan's Lakes state, with the aid organization Oxfam, I met people whose lives have been turned upside down by conflict over the last year, but who still haven't lost their belief that things can get better.

At a camp for people who had crossed the Nile to escape the violence that destroyed their homes, a middle-aged Dinka man, who was easily 7 feet tall, told me that armed men had stolen all of his cows -- his main source of income. When I offered my sympathy for his loss, he smiled and said, "Don't worry, I will get more cows."

Indeed, much of the story of South Sudan is a story of hope. When the country gained independence in 2011 after more than half a century of war, people danced and cried with joy in the streets as they looked forward to a future of peace and development.

Through the valiant efforts of the South Sudanese people and support from the international community and organizations like Oxfam, things were getting better. New roads were paved, communities without access to clean water saw wells drilled, and violence was drastically reduced. Tens of thousands of young girls were receiving education for the first time. Things were changing for the better.

But then last December, a power struggle between the country's president and vice president turned violent and led to a skirmish between some of their supporters that has wreaked havoc across the country.

Church leaders and civil society groups have appealed for peace and reconciliation. People I met are opposed to -- and terrified by -- what's happening. But as the summer's rains have ended and the roads are once again passable, the fighting has resumed and is likely to get worse in the coming weeks.

Although the conflict has taken on an ethnic tone, people I spoke with were at pains to tell me that this wasn't a conflict between the Dinka and Nuer tribes, who have lived together, worked together, and intermarried for generations. Standing in the midst of rows of newly planted tomatoes, one Dinka man took a break from weeding to tell me that he believed in a peaceful future for South Sudan -- but not without greater action from the international community.

"When you have problems within your family," he told me, "you sometimes can't solve it yourself; you need someone from outside to come in and help you reconcile." His words were echoed by so many South Sudanese I spoke with, who highlighted the special role of the United States in helping the country achieve peace and gain its independence, and asked for America's assistance again now.

As we mark one year since the start of this terrible conflict, we have to do more to support South Sudanese peacemakers and pressure the country's leaders to stop fighting. The resilience of the people of South Sudan can only go so far without a political solution to this conflict.

Even now when I think of South Sudan, I don't think of war. I don't think of poverty and children with AK-47s. All of this exists within the country, but I think of the confident cattle herder who believes he will regain his lost cows, even in the face of such despair. I think of the many pregnant young women I met, who were excited for their future and the future of their children, hoping that it would include peace and a chance for a good education.

But most of all I think about the many incredible people I met who have lost everything they have in the world, but still manage to keep going and keep hoping for peace. It is for those people that the U.S. must act to keep that hope alive.

Westchester native Rooney Mara will lend her voice to animated film

Rooney Mara will be free to skip the hair and makeup chair when she films her next movie role. The Bedford native will be heard but not seen in the upcoming animated film "Kubo and the Two Strings."

Mara and stars including Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron and Ralph Fiennes will lend their voices to the movie about a boy on the run from gods and monsters in ancient Japan. The film will be released in theaters in August, 2016.

Roles have been rolling in for Rooney Mara in recent months. The Fox Lane High School grad will play Tiger Lily in Joe Wright’s Peter Pan prequel “Pan.” She will also star “The Secret Scripture,” about a woman who writes a secret memoir about her life in mental institutions. And the Oscar nominee, 29, will produce and star in “A House In The Sky,” the true story of abducted journalist Amanda Lindhout.

Rooney Mara: Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Sequel Is Pretty Much Dead

We've got some bad news.

The much-wanted Girl With the Dragon Tattoo sequel won't be coming to a theater near you.

Rooney Mara, who starred in director David Fincher's movie adaptation of the best-selling novel, confirms it's a lost cause.

"I don't think it's going to happen," she told me earlier this week at the Oxfam dinner she hosted with Barneys New York at Chateau Marmont. "I'm sad never to do it again, but it just doesn't seem like it's in the cards."

Fincher reportedly told Swedish website Afton Bladet in September that a script was being written for a follow-up movie based on the novel The Girl Who Played With Fire.

"I think because [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something," he reportedly said. "The script that we now have [has] a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book."

In May, Mara told me she was interested in reprising her role as computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and suggested fans start a petition to get it going.

Dragon Tattoo was released four years ago and co-starred Daniel Craig, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer and Stellan Skarsgard.

The $90 million production grossed $233 million at the box office.
