Rooney Mara is too fancy for Law & Order: SVU: “It was so awful. So stupid.”

I mentioned this yesterday, when I talked about Rooney Mara being kind of boring and over-exposed (and try-hard). She just doesn’t have much of a personality, so she’s trying to seem like she’s really hardcore and Lisbeth Salander-like in real life. Anyway, Rooney covers the new issue of Allure, and the excerpts they’ve released… well, this is A Portrait of The Artist As A Smug Bitch. She reminds me of Gwyneth Paltrow, truly. Not Gwyneth now, but Gwyneth back in the day, circa 1996 when she was The Miramax Princess and everyone thought she was the coolest, and Gwyneth KNEW she was the coolest. That’s where Rooney thinks she is now. She thinks that because she scored the massive role, she can bad-mouth all of her early jobs. You should go to Allure’s slideshow, where they show Rooney old photos of herself and she comments on them – she’s kind of a snot. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Getting her nipple pierced: “I’m naked quite a lot in the movie, and I thought, she has it in the book, and she should have it [in the movie]…Because of all the tattoos and the makeup and the piercings, and the physical transformations my body has to go through, it would always feel sort of like I was in costume, even if I was naked. It just felt like a good one to get–a necessary one to get.”

On the nudity: “Nudity is such a huge part of the character in the book, so I never thought twice about it. There was no time for hesitation. I didn’t have time to second-guess anything or be scared; I just showed up and was comfortable.”

Cutting her hair for the part: “People always ask, ‘Were you crying when they cut your hair?’ And it didn’t freak me out at all. I was really happy to do it.”

Her personal style: “I used to wear a lot of girlie, frilly things, now I buy things that are more comfortable, and more utilitarian, and sort of boyish.”

She needed a stylist in 2009: “Now you kind of have to have a stylist, because it’s somehow part of the job of being an actor to also model clothes that no one’s seen before. And you can’t really get those clothes unless you have someone getting them for you.”

Her part in a 2006 episode of Law & Order: SVU: “It was so awful. So stupid. People are obsessed with that show. I don’t get it. Me and my boyfriend—although I don’t look old enough to have a boyfriend—went and beat up these fat people, and at the end of the show you find out that I used to be obese and I hate fat people. It’s ridiculous. Who would ever do that? Who would beat someone up because they’re fat? And as retribution, they sodomized her. I mean, I’ve been sodomized since the beginning of my career. I should have known then it would come full circle.”

Her part in The Social Network: “Am I as cool as [Erica Albright] is? Maybe to an extent. Not cool; I would say I’m quite aloof. The story out there is that we did this scene 99 times. I don’t know if that’s entirely true or not, but we definitely did it a lot.”

Looking at a photo of herself and David Fincher: “Oh, sweet little David. I look so small next to him. I don’t smoke. I smoked for the film. I think I’m addicted in costume and in character. If I had to go to set right now and work, I would crave a cigarette. But otherwise, I don’t.”

[From Allure & Us Weekly]

Oh. NO. She. DIDN’T disrespect Law & Order: SVU. WTF? Why would you disrespect Law & Order: SVU, especially if you were on an episode circa 2006?!? Those were the golden years of SVU – it’s gone downhill in the past few years, granted, but even then, good actors consistently show up for SVU. I guess Rooney Mara thinks she’s too special to act opposite the likes of Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni and Ice-T and Richard Badass Belzer. Bitch please.

As for the rest of the interview… meh. I’m glad she’s not all “Woe is me, no one can understand the brilliance I brought to this.” She worked hard to get the part and she worked hard once she got the part, and I’m glad she’s not acting like a martyr about it.

    Big massive BITCH PLEASE! I love my law and order svu. I’ll even half admit to some inappropriate feellings for christopher meloni at times.

    • gillie says:

      No such thing as “inappropriate” feelings for The Hotness, Mr. Meloni. It’s ALWAYS appropriate!

    • kristipistol says:

      So, did you hear he may be on True Blood? He’ll probably be naked in the first few scenes!!!

      • Hautie says:

        He did oodles of nude scene’s in OZ (HBO show). And I am talking full frontal nude. Then again so did most men on that show. And they were all in great shape. Sighhhhh…. I miss OZ.

      • Lol says:

        No I didn’t hear that you just made my day :) glad i’m not alone in my perving :)

      • Thea says:

        OMG…Seriously. I love him. And I would love to do bad things to him..She needs to STFU and be thankful for a opportunity to be in a movie or TV series. She needs to take a clue from the Clooney and just act and take her paycheck.

      • amc says:

        It’s been confirmed. He is going to be on True Blood. Could that show possibly get any more hotness? Between him and ASkars …DAMN!!

    • sparkle.burnout says:

      Bish please! That was a really dumb move. You don’t dis the LO. Iowa’s on the fence with her, but now she’s dead to me. Silly cow.

  2. brin says:

    Wow….at least wait til the reviews are in before you start going Hollywood. L&O SVU may still be going strong when everyone says “Rooney who?”

  3. Kobi says:

    Bitch please.

  4. kazoo says:

    lol…funny with the comparison to gwyneth. coincidentally, mara comes from a very wealthy family. but i’m sure, like gwyneth, she’d swear that her family’s wealth and connections would have nothing to do with her success.

  5. DreamyK says:

    Girl needs help. She is having an affair with the Director of the flick and it has some seriously weird vibes. From Vogue:

    “When a waiter appears to take our order, we are all looking at our menus, but I see out of the corner of my eye Fincher nudging Mara. He says with quiet seriousness, “You can eat.” I look up to see her reaction. Mara rolls her eyes, and Fincher laughs. “You can have lettuce and a grape. A raisin if you must.” She orders a piece of fish and barely touches it.”

    http://www.vogue.com/magazine/article/rooney-mara-playing-with-fire/

    • Jenn says:

      She may or may not be dating, having sex with Fincher, but not an “affair” since both are single and can do whatever they want.

      • inception fan says:

        David fincher has a long time relationship with producer Ceán Chaffin.

      • laura says:

        Jenn –

        I do so hate it when people feel the need to ‘correct’ others but their ‘corrections’ are, in fact, incorrect.

        One can be single and have an affair with another single person. The term affair does not apply only to relationships that occur outside of one’s primary love relationship.

    • Deb says:

      WTF?! Seriously, that reminds me of the movie, Secretary, where James Spader tells Maggie Ghyllenhall (probably spelled that incorrectly) exactly what and how much to eat. However, at least he let her eat all the ice cream she wanted.

  6. truthSF says:

    Bitch please!!

    And it’s official, Chris Meloni will be a season regular on true blood playing a powerful vampire. They better have that man screwing everything that breathe on that show.

  7. Bopa says:

    She should only hope L&O is there once her career has a down turn. Too early to burn bridges dear.

    • Esmom says:

      Exactly. She needs to take a page from all the actors who are grateful for their soap or sitcom beginnings. Or at least pretend to be. Geez.

      Side note: At first glance, she looks like Demi Moore on the cover, doesn’t she?

  8. BNF says:

    I don’t like this girl… She seems to bitchy and selfrighteous. What’s with the comment she made about David Fincher? Weird!!!

    • inception fan says:

      perhaps, she said this because she knows that he has creepy crush on her like jim carrey on Emma Stone.

  9. Kiki says:

    I think L&O is way too cool for her. There are just some things people should not mess up with… And that’s L&O!

  10. Aria says:

    Her hair again is so distracting! Can’t stand her and her acting. I prefer her sister.

  11. Kiki says:

    Fame is going over her head – typical Hollywood girl, gets her 15 minutes of stardom and thinks she’s above it all.

    • Veruca says:

      With her money & background, something tells me that Hollywood had nothing to do with it. She’s been raised to believe she’s ‘above it all’.

      (Can you tell I’m sick of nepotism?)

      • Jay says:

        So she bad mouths SVU. But no mention of that Nightmare on Elm Street remake?

        Her sister is also an actress but she seems miles more down to earth and grateful of her success then Rooney.

  12. Agnes says:

    Bitch, please! Sit down! SVU will rock long after you are gone and forgotten. (And bullying fat kids isn’t a real issue? Read a paper and listen to the news, you malnourished wanna-be.)

  13. gillie says:

    She’s Kate Mara’s sister? Well, I guess we know who got the short end of the stick in that family tree…

  14. M3l says:

    Bitch is starting to bug me.

    SVU has been around what, 13 years? Maybe she can be catty about it when she’s got the same mileage.

  15. Cindy says:

    I’m surprised she didn’t bring up the Nightmare on Elm St. remake, which she was awful in.

    How the hell does one criticize SVU when starring in Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? I’ve never read it, but isn’t the storyline basically one big SVU plot?

    • mln76 says:

      I’ve read the books and yes it is just a Swedish SVU thing. I’m going to watch this because David Fincher can do no wrong but in so sick of this girl.

    • cici says:

      LOL! yes – it IS. this girl has now rubbed me the wrong way BUT i think she was talking about her “role” being stupid, not the show in general?

      • Jay says:

        And therefore she is bad mouthing the writers and staff who create the show because her role was “stupid”. She probably didn’t mean it that way but that’s how it sounds when you say it out loud.

    • mia135 says:

      She dissed the Nightmare on Elm Street remake too! Said in the Vogue interview that she disliked the experience of making the film so much, that it made her question if she wanted to be an actress.

    • Kat says:

      She’s already bashed both Law & Order:SVU and the Nightmare on Elm Street remake in a different interview. So I guess this “i’m so above it all” attitude is one that has been in place for a while now. I also guess being cast in a massive film franchise that is sure to do gangbusters at the box office isn’t enough, either. I guess seeming remotely grateful for having a successful career and being in some of the biggest franchises of both TV and film is too plebian for Gwyneth 2.0.

    • Rachael says:

      HAHAH holy sh*t that’s a GREAT point … I didn’t even think about that until I read your comment. I haven’t read the books but I did see the first movie (the Swedish one of course), and this is EXACTLY what I was thinking when I watched it!! I just kept saying to myself, “This is basically just a really long ep of L&O with more nudity and tattoos and piercings to dress it up and make it seem cooler.”

      I’ve never been a big L&O fan either, so the movie left me a bit cold. I don’t entirely get the hype.

  16. Lavender says:

    She comes from a super wealthy family, has grown up extremely privileged her whole life. She’s probably been this smug since she was a kid, and doesn’t know how not to be. I kind of wish they could have found some unknown actress who bore similarities to the character. She’s a pampered rich chick posing as this deeply troubled girl with this awful upbringing…I don’t know. I hope the movie is good.

    • Toot says:

      Yep, father owns the NY Giants and mother’s family owns the Pittsburgh Steelers. She reminds me of Gwyneth a lot with her smugness.

    • cici says:

      if the girl can act the part well, then more power to her for being able to be on the sidelines at any Steelers or Giants game she wants. That is awesome.

    • lala says:

      I will say, though, that despite her family’s wealth, both her and her sister Kate went to public school and seemed to live fairly normal lives (I went to high school with Kate Mara). Granted, the Mara family lived in an affluent suburb.

      • alaskajoey says:

        Wow! I had no idea she and Kate were sisters. I’m really liking Kate on “American Horror Story” – she’s good at playing fragile yet very creepy characters.

        Bad move on Rooney’s part to start badmouthing people at this stage in her career, though.

    • Shannon says:

      Isn’t the whole point of acting being able to inhabit the role of someone very different from you? Being from a wealthy background doesn’t preclude this ability. I find your insinuation that she must have been raised to be a smug brat just because her parents had money to be kind of snotty in itself.

  17. Sisi says:

    she reminds me a bit of Dianna Agron of Glee. She’s pretty, but there’s nothing interesting inside. No character, no charisma, nothing.

    And because of that, just like with Dianna Agron, I can’t be bothered to be interested. There’s nothing to like, there’s nothing to hate, except for the utter blandness of them.

  18. becky says:

    I remember that episode. It WAS ridiculous! and I LOVE my L&O, but that was a truly stupid plot. Lazy writing!

  19. L says:

    Dude I remember that episode. She sucked in it.

    But yea, people get beat up and assaulted for so many reasons that seem weird to a spoiled hollywood brat. Money, race, who they are holding hands with, being overweight, being homeless, their gender, their shoes-don’t hate because you can’t get into the psyche of someone who actually thinks along those lines.

    This girl grates, hopefully this movie bombs and people go see the original version instead.

  20. Ambergesa says:

    Well there is bullying fat kids and there is beating fat people with bats because you used to be fat? That sounds pretty stupid/contrived to me. I could never get into any of those shows their “ripped from the headlines with a twist” story lines aren’t watchable for me. She didn’t rip the actors, just her ridic story line. On her? Meh but what was that “sweet little David” remark about? Passive aggressive much?

    • inception fan says:

      it confused me too! he made her a star and this is her response?? it reminds me of Megan Fox’s comments about Michael Bay

    • Trek Girl says:

      The episode itself might have been cheesy, but things like that do happen.

      Hate of one’s self projected on others can result, and has resulted, in horrible, hard to believe happenings.

  21. Marjalane says:

    Hmmmm. She comes across like Megyn Fox with a slightly higher I.Q.. It’ll be interesting to see if she hooks up with the Gosdong again while promoting the new movie. It’d be an overload of tryhard.

  22. Bite me says:

    Well damn

  23. madpoe says:

    I’d be content not to hear this woman speak ever again unless she was reading from a script and that I don’t even know b/c I’ve not seen her acting as of yet.

  24. atlantapug says:

    Wow. Bite the hand that feeds you much?
    Don’t be downing SVU bitch. Everyone has to get their start somewhere and if special snowflake Rooney Mara is too good for the Job her daddy bought for her than I’m sure another struggling actor would have loved to get that part.
    Ill see Dragon even though the original was brilliant, but because I love Daniel Craig.
    Oh and very very excited for Christopher Meloni to be on True Blood.

  25. Ari says:

    Wow, her shite dont stink huh?

    I love the comparison to Gwennie who is the epitome of righteous snottiness.

  26. Kelly says:

    Every time I read a quote from this girl she finds a way to mention how small she is. Gimme a break!

  27. Delta Juliet says:

    I can’t believe no one has commented on her “I’ve been sodomized since the beginning of my career.” Comment.

    Oh, really?

    • Veruca says:

      Comments like that make me hopeful that her career will be ending soon.

      Unfortunately, I’d had the same hope for the Kardascum, but it was just announced that E! is planning FOUR more shows about them.

      It’s Armageddon Time.

    • L says:

      Yea…that one was just wrong.

    • Crystalline says:

      I agree! Why is that horrific statement being ignored? Have I misunderstood what she meant, because that sounds like a “woe is me, my career rapes me” statement. That seems like the real controversy.

      • Ambergesa says:

        I think she was saying the characters she plays are sodomized, she has a horrific rape/sodomy scene in TGWADT and her character was sodomized on L&O SVU in retaliation for beating the fat people.

      • Crystalline says:

        Thanks, I actually don’t know a thing about this series, so that explains why no one thought much of it. Still think its a pretty crass statement to make and certainly one that is not appropriate or poetic (which I guess she thinks of this as some poetic circle? Ugh, still wtf all over that).

    • Shannon says:

      She wasn’t being metaphorical about her career. The point was that her character was sodomized on SVU, and her character was sodomized in Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. She was making a literal comment about it. I don’t see what’s wrong with pointing out the connection? I dunno, it seems like people just really want to hate this woman.

    • connie says:

      i was reading through the comments waiting for that too!

  28. Boo says:

    SO sick of her already. Go back to wherever you came from, Bitch, and take your stupid fake-sounding name with you.

  29. anneesezz says:

    I wish I hadn’t read that… she is exactly like Gwyneth. Over-privileged brat – born on third base and thinks she hit a triple. Get over yourself.

  30. QQ says:

    Can I say I LOVE YOU BITCHES?

    Love that everyone came out swinging for Law & Order!

    This chippy needs to stfu and SIT DOWN, Having a creepy relationship with Fincher, does no an actress make.

    Also WHY are they making this movie? Cause gringos are too lazy to read subtitles?

    Also while Amazibg Rapace looked like a natural, l uk e she was Salander and that was just how she dressed, this brat with creepy bangs looks like try harding her way through the Hot Topic catalog

  31. eloisa says:

    Oh, please…. how can she bitch about her start if she isn’t doing anything special? she is so forgettable. And i think is awful hollywood did a remake of a contemporany classic like girl with the dragon tattoo with the great Noomi Rapace. She really sound so frivolous and airhead trying to hard to be cool and She ISNT!

    So this girl who is just coping the great Rapace is really thinking she is now a star? Oh boy…… (roll eyes). I prefer Gwyneth Paltrow a thousand times.

    You have to watch the original triology (Lisbeth Salander movies), are great.

  32. Victoria says:

    Bitch please. You come from wealth, don’t her parents own the Steelers and some other shit that goes back in the U.S. Steele era? She is sooo over-rated in her looks as well. Her sister Kate is so much hotter and way more talented witha better personality. She doesn’t come across as a snob. I never would have guessed she came from such a privileged background.

    And this movie is not going to be better than the Swedish version for all the obvious reasons. She is not bad ass but a poser. At least Goop has a bit of a personality. I can’t deal with her.

    What do you mean why would someone beat up someone because they are fat? Why would someone go to another country and hall their asses to another and use them as slaves? What the hell was wrong with the DC Sniper and he crazy ass? Why did the Unibomber make getting the mail a SWAT event? Why did those nutjobs blow up the WTC? Why did Larsson make a book with such dark and twisted themes. Because this world is fucked up and people do stupid shit all the time that doesn’t make sense. What a twat and a douche.

    • Trek Girl says:

      Exactly!

      People think the storyline she’s talking about is stupid and farfetched, but things like that happen all the time. Do they have their heads in the sand or something?

  33. Cathy says:

    Well, my oh my, aren’t we just a little brat.

  34. Maxe says:

    she did not! i´m going to cut a bitch! benson and stabler are the best.

  35. stephanie says:

    i think she’s so gorgeous, but what a pill.

  36. bea says:

    Wow, way to get the masses hating on someone for no reason at all.

    I’ve read WAY more pretentious quotes from actors before.

    Sorry she dissed Law & Order – but that sounds like a ridiculous premise for an episode.

    • gloaming says:

      Yeah, she’s not the warmest of individuals to say the least, but that plot was weak.
      I don’t blame her feelings towards it now…..

    • Trek Girl says:

      The Law and Order:SVU episode in question might not have been one of their better ones, but the idea that someone who used to be fat would assault, rape, harass and just in general do horrible things to someone else who is fat, is not at all farfetched.

      Things like that happen do happen, and they happen more than one would think.

  37. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Oh man..she hasn’t learned the fine art of projecting “likeability” yet huh? She must be taking lessons from Raccoon McPantless Momsen. I kind of agree with her about SVU though (don’t kill me)-the plotlines are pretty awful–but it’s an entertaining show nonetheless. It’s not trying to be groundbreaking you know?

  38. jc126 says:

    SVU is fairly awful. I love the actors on the show, hate the show itself (most weeks, anyway).

  39. RobN says:

    That episode was awful; she may be a smug princess, but she’s right about that. What is she supposed to do, pretend that everything she ever did was art?

    I do think it’s possible that she has absolutely no personality whatsoever and is trying to steal Lisbeth’s.

  40. GetTheeBehindMe says:

    what’s with the hairstyle? uh mara moe did it first and did it better as for her being cool er, or est, cool is a state of being you either are or you arent and you NEVER talk about it. she sounds stuck up and entitled and with that hair if i were she i’d rethink my entire schtick ….because pretension is so not cool….

  41. Jenna68 says:

    Whether the plot was stupid or not, making remarks like that is really unprofessional. Ungrateful wretch.

  42. T.C. says:

    Her try-hard moment for me was in that Vogue interview where she took the reporter to a cemetery to eat their bagged lunch. Because bitch swears she is really hard core just like Lisbeth Salander and you know can’t just go to a park like regular people. And in that interview she seems to remember exactly how many takes the scene in the Social Network took, now she can’t be bothered to remember. http://www.vogue.com/magazine/article/rooney-mara-playing-with-fire/ Then there is a new interview where they ask her to talk about something SIGNIFICANT that fans may overlook about ‘Girl with Dragon Tattoo’ and all she could talk about was the color of the fake hair used to cover up her vagina. Seriously, that’s significant? Yeah we get it, you are edgy and sexual just like Lisbeth. Bitch please, sit down! http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/news/a355876/rooney-mara-i-wore-pubic-wig-for-the-girl-with-the-dragon-tattoo.html

  43. Nan says:

    I had to look her up on IMDB and I couldn’t remember her from Social Network. Didn’t even ring a bell. I’m annoyed that they remade a perfectly good movie. The original Lisbeth is badass…You believe her. In the trailers for the remake I don’t quite buy Rooney as Lisbeth. BUT I’ll see it because I can’t stand not to…I want to see if it’s got the same punch as the original.

  44. Shaniqua Nunyadambidness says:

    “Oh. NO. She. DIDN’T disrespect Law & Order: SVU. WTF?”

    Kaiser, I think I love you.

  45. Rhiley says:

    I bet most of the “idiots” (and I am including myself in this) who watch SUV (as Kathy Griffin’s mom calls it) don’t say things like “me and my…” Rooney Mara are you smarter than a 5th grader? Nope. Also, I loved Girl With A Dragon Tattoo (both the book & the movie) but The Girl Who Played With Fire is dumb as dog doo. Nevertheless Noomi Rapace is Lisbeth Salander and Roomey whatever is just a poser.

  46. Reece says:

    *side eyes this chick*
    All actors have to start off doing small stupid roles. (which in her defense that plot lines totally is)
    However, that doesn’t mean you go round dumping on them just because a big time director cast you in his movie.
    Can’t stand actors like that. If it wasn’t for the Fincher/Craig factor that really is enough to make me not go see this.

  47. GatsbyGal says:

    “Who would beat someone up because they’re fat?”

    Well, that tells me everything I need to know about her right there. She lives in a bubble of privilege and has no idea what she’s talking about. People get beat up for less reasons than “being fat” every single day. Is she stupid or just ignorant?

    • Trek Girl says:

      I would love to say that she’s stupid or ignorant, but I doubt that she’s either one of those, at least when it comes to this.
      She probabaly knows things like this happen, but because she didn’t/doesn’t like the episode she was in she’s just going to say the whole idea is stupid, whether it was inspired by true events or not.

    • Elle says:

      Thank you for finally pointing out a very disturbing part of this interview. “who would beat someone up because they are fat?” There are overweight kids everyday who are beaten up and bullied for their weight. How out of touch is this girl? Step outside of yourself and take a look at the real world around you. Maybe then you can gain some perspective and appreciation for what you have.

  48. Cerulean says:

    She can’t help she came from a rich family. It’s not fair to hate on her for that. The episode does sound stupid. I’m all for giving her a chance. Let’s see her acting chops in the movie first.

  49. Lizzy says:

    Ehh she sounds full of herself. Love her sister though, Kate Mara is awesome in American Horror Story

  50. bunny says:

    There have been two quotes from this girl this week and she sounds a mimi gwennie in the making. She reeks of self entitlement.

  51. ruby says:

    The more photos I see, the more I realize she’s not even that pretty. So to sum it up : boring, bland, not pretty, and bitches about past jobs ? How unattractive.

  52. Gal says:

    What a tool. Regarding Law & Order: She knows she’a an actor, right? Playing a part? One day she might play a murderer, is she going to say “who would do that”???? Actors do that, stupid.

  53. Leek says:

    Uuugh…what an asshole. I love those books and she just saved me $10.50. I’ll wait for the DVD.

  54. Amanda says:

    She’s just speaking the truth, rather than saying what you all want to hear. So what if you disagree with the content, at least she’s got the balls to speak her mind instead of create some sugary lie.

    • Cerulean says:

      She’s not gushing PR drivel. This is true.

    • T.C. says:

      No one asked her a lie, she was the one who took the role. If it was so stupid in the first place why did she do it? If the answer is so she could pay her rent then you say thank-you for being given a job. You don’t start trashing old jobs, you quickly start becoming an ungrateful twat who no one wants to hire. I’m sure George Clooney had some crappy episodes on ‘ER’ or ‘The Facts of Life’ but you never hear him bitching about those shows because they got him to where he is now.

      I agree 100%! I remember the episode, actually, and remember thinking WTF? It was a very stupid plot. Love Mariska and Chris Meloni, but dear god that show has some awful writing most of the time.

    • Elle says:

      I don’t have a problem with her not liking her jobs. She can complain about her life all she wants. But that she thinks fat people don’t get beat up is ridiculous. Just because she didn’t like the plot doesn’t mean the problem doesn’t exist.

  55. hairball says:

    I love SVU but now that Christopher Meloni isn’t on, I don’t care about it anymore.

    Sometimes the shows are a bit much, but my favorite about SVU is when the police are interviewing people out in the community. The person NEVER just stands there and answers their questions, they keep doing their job, walking away talking while the detectives follow. What?

    I am THRILLED Meloni is on “True Blood”!!!

  56. taksi says:

    Eh…yeah she’s probably smug but that interview didn’t seem that bad. L&O: SVU is crap though. At one point it was good, but the cases kept getting more “shocking” and ridiculous, case in point, the episode she was in. She could have at least been tactful about it, but I like that she’s being unfiltered and at least I see some of her personality. Don’t know if I like her or not, but like Gwyneth, I understand the vitriol sometimes…it’s just meh for me.

  57. Sara says:

    I know some kids are beaten because they are fat. and kids doing to kids… be fat today is kind of crime, you can’t be fat, overweight, is wrong, you a stupid, is disgusting. Of course some people are beaten by some psychopath.
    She doesnt know what she is talking about. I usually complain about lack of personality that Kristen Stewart has, but Rooney Mara is worst, and her photo shots arent good too. she is plain and bland….

  58. Ryan says:

    She does seem kind of full of herself, but what ever. I’ll check out the movie cause I wanna see her nipple piercing :)

  59. Sasha says:

    Please — the original movie (and actress who played Lisbeth) kicked ass. This is a worthless remake.

  60. almond says:

    Good god, the movie isn’t even out yet ans she already acts as if she’s above it all. Who exactly sodomized her throughout her career? Is she still twelve to not be able to convey strong opinions without the use of hyperbole and crass exaggeration? Sit down, Mara!

  61. podzol says:

    Mara really shot herself in the foot. A young up-and-coming actress who in all likelihood is very talented acting-wise, but comes across in her first offscreen interviews as a smug and snide self-entitled idiot. BITCH PLEASE, indeed. Kaiser is so right, she’s 100000x more try-hard than Ryan Gosling currently.

  62. Jover says:

    Folks you can’t diss anything that had the late Jerry Orbach in it; so this chick is related to Wellington Mara and the Rooney’s of Pittsburgh? Not liking her already, and did she mention whether she actually read the trilogy I believe – it seems a lot of privileged kids act like posers instead of just being grateful for their good fortune.

  63. Penguin says:

    Her sister is Hayden in American horror story. They are both annoying with chimp faces.

  64. chantal says:

    Bitch please! You haven’t arrived yet! You are no Noomi Rapace, skank!

  65. Holly Hobby says:

    My aren’t we pretentious. I actually read her comments on the Allure slides and she was definitely trying too hard to be cool.

    Also,Roooney Honey (what kind of name is that. Yes I know you came from a football family but when I think of Rooney, I think of a cookie), if your current style is utilitarian and boyish, you should lose those horrible cut out dresses.

    And yup, she definitely did her svengali, David Fincher.

  66. jamie says:

    What, her playing a college nympho was high art?

  67. TXCinderella says:

    Christopher Meloni…YUM!!! I don’t know who this chick thinks she is, but that kind of stuff will come back to haunt. You don’t trash your previous work publicly. Who knows, someday a director or producer from that show (or some of their friends) will be working on a movie. They will damn well make sure you aren’t hired. Karma sister!

  68. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    There is difference between telling the truth and being a little humble. I’ve had a million stupid jobs but I worked my way up slowly and used every job to get experience and money. She got to read the script prior to doing it … if it sounded beneath her she shouldn’t have done it.

    She should have learned from Heigel. This shit comes back to bite you in the ass. The public isn’t very forgiving of this kind of snotty behaviour especially when you’ve barely begun your career.

  69. FingerBinger says:

    I remember that episode it was kind of goofy, but still love SVU,

  70. Victoria says:

    This has nothing to do with anyone hating on her for being rich. I know rich people and went to school with them and for the most part aside from their self inflicted drama, they were cool. But they also didn’t pretend to know about things they had no clue about.

    I’ve seen plenty of fat kids get beat up and picked on and the few who decided to change themselves completely for high school so they could be popular would transition and become bully’s themselves. That is what dumb ass children do. Not all but many.

    I don’t have a problem with people having money, but when they become so removed from the general public that they make asinine comments it pisses me off.

  71. paranormalgirl says:

    She should be grateful for every role, stupid or otherwise, that she has gotten. Most actors never get to play even the most stupid role on a hit television show. Most actors are actor slashes (actor/bartender, actor/saleclerk, etc). It behooves one to be a little humble throughout one’s career because it could all end at any given moment.

  72. chloe says:

    I’ve seen the original Tattoo movies and they are great, I’m still on the fence about the American version. As for her comments, she’ll either learn or pay for them. I just watched Matt Damon on the Today show and he was asked why he works so much and he said because I remember what it was like to not have work before Good Will and then Robin Wright was on after him and said she was thankful for her acting jobs. Maybe this chic should listen to how these seasoned professionals give interviews and take note. I’m tired of cry baby actors.

  73. Kimberly says:

    I am so fucking happy I have no clue who this chick is. I was never a facebook whore, so I never watched that herd movie all the young high school and techy sheep were running to.

    As for her Tatoo movie?
    I watched the orginal movie, and don’t plan on watching the retarded hollywood version that’s all sparkles and glitter.

    I do have to say I like that she’s not beautiful at all, she’s completely average looking, and that IS refreshing.

  74. DarkEmpress says:

    She always came off to me as overrated and trashy. I thought maybe I was being too judgemental but her quotes confirm I was right.

  75. the original bellaluna says:

    I really like her sister Kate (and American Horror Story is on tonight! YAY!).

    To be she sounds like such an asshole. I was willing to give her a chance, based on my liking Kate. But now, forget it.

  76. Twez says:

    In her defense, that was an excruciatingly stupid episode.

  77. bappi says:

    She is absolutely right about SVU.

  78. skank says:

    this skanks family owns the steelers and giants. hence the name…mara giants, and rooney, steelers. she will be around with her family producing her crap

  79. JaneWonderfalls says:

    The funny thing is I don’t really know who she is, maybe I have been under a rock or just never found any post of her interesting enough to read them…

  80. Flan says:

    Just watch the Swedish movies with subtitles; they’re good.

    I really don’t get why Americans can’t watch movies with subtitles and have to remake everything.

    Do you think people abroad do the same with American stories?
    Brokeback mountain on the Alps with lederhosen?

  81. Jordan says:

    oh, you fancy, huh?

    Someone’s getting ahead of themselves…she probably can picture the Oscar in her hands.

  82. Meggers says:

    I want on the waiting list to slap this fugly, entitled bitch!

  83. Callumna says:

    She’s been insufferable. I do see her point on being po’d tho having to be “sodomized” on screen repeatedly just to be an actress.

    Before, women were nothing but wives and junk on screen. Now, they are actually and virtually sodomized on screen. The violent sex all over the place is terrible.

    Truly, the sexist pig shit is getting worse not better. Just sayin.

    • Gigi says:

      Um, did you see the episode? It’s SVU so it’s pretty much PG/GP. She just pretty much talks about being beaten up and sodomized. She wasn’t very good then, and she had basically the same facial expressions she did in The Social Network.

  84. Callumna says:

    This director seems an ass. He had her naked and starving the whole time, it’s modern Hitchcockian.

    Look at how skeletal she is in the white dress.

  85. ANON says:

    “Oh sweet little David”….?????

    WOW..

    • Gigi says:

      Right?!?? That’s David Motherf*cking Fincher, bitch. He’s the man who made Brad Pitt cool. This silly little rich girl needs to sit down, STFU, and put that sense of entitlement away.

  86. Lexi says:

    Did anyone else giggle at the tagline on the Allure cover? “Rooney Mara: The Girl with the pierced nipple.” Awful.
