Rooney Mara Is Grateful

Rooney Mara called her role on Law & Order: SVU as a fat rape victim awful and stupid but she eventually backtracked. Now she’s moved on to giving her role on A Nightmare on Elm Street the finger.

“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,” Mara told Entertainment Weekly.

“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] ‘F**k. I definitely got that’.” Digital Spy

Gosh, I hate when that happens too. Traipsing through life while opportunities just fall in my lap. Some days I’ll be minding my own business when some hot girl asks for my number and then gives me a $100 bill. I’m all like, “I just wanted the $100, lady!” Or when I save a baby from a burning building but end up putting out the fire as well. Sheesh, why am I so awesome?!

I’ve never seen her act, but It just amazes me a girl from TWO, multimillionaire families that own NFL franchises can just up and “act” with all of those gritty, character building experiences like which butler will bring her breakfast in the mansion or which Rolls Royce will drive her to school, or blah blah blah….it’s kind of a slap in the face to all the actors that have had to bust their chops, starve and work their asses off just to get a shot.

Totally agree. And her acting in Nightmare on elm street was S**T, she had a blank expression the whole time! The only reason why everybody is on her ass right now is because of David Fincher. Someone this ungrateful and egocentric should know fame isn’t forever and should not criticize former jobs that actually put her on the map of other directors…
