Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, or Amy Adams: who looked the best at the ‘Her’ premiere?


Here are some photos from the NYFF “closing night” screening of Her (“A Spike Jonze Love Story”) starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and Rooney Mara. All the actors attended the screening too, to mixed results. First of all… Joaquin. God, I still have affection for Joaquin even though I’m pretty sure he’s incredibly gross in real life. The other day I had an old-school Joaquin fantasy, which hasn’t happened to me in years. So beautiful, so talented, so… gross.

As for the ladies… lord, I think they all look bad. Rooney Mara wore Proenza Schouler. I actually like the skirt but I think the weird tank thing looks too costume-y and like the designers were all, “We’re creating The Future of Fashion!” and that’s all they cared about, not making a lady look nice or flattering her figure. Rooney is a tiny, petite little thing and they made her look stumpy, that’s all I’m saying.




Amy wore this lavender Prabal Gurung dress. I’m sorry, I love her, but she looks like a damn Easter egg. I get that she’s feminine and she loves pastels, but all I see is an Easter egg with too much blue eye makeup.



Olivia Cockburn (Wilde) wore Michael Kors. I used to have a pair of palazzo pants like this in black and I loved them so, so much. They were so comfortable and it was like wearing a long, breezy skirt only they were pants and I loved them. On Olivia… I don’t know. It seems much too conservative. I’m not saying she needs to pour herself into a Herve Leger, but it just seems like she’s a Senate staffer rather than a would-be movie star.

    Here for Joaquin! He is aggressively fighting the hotness but I’m not giving up on him. I’ll never let go…

  2. bammer says:

    They all look terrible. Poor Joaquin.

  3. Cecilia says:

    I like Rooney’s outfit. I would totally wear that. The rest?? Blech!!

  4. RocketMerry says:

    Joaquin is the best looking. That’s all.

  5. Mika says:

    Rooney Mara’s stare scares me.

  6. blue marie says:

    Maybe if Mara’s skirt were shorter?

    I love Joaquin, just no longer want to “hit it” I think it’s his hair.

  7. Aiobhan says:

    All of the outfits would look better if they were on taller women. Patricia looks like a Manson follower. Whether it be Marilyn or Charles, she is trying too hard to be creepy. Her skin looks fantastic though.

    Amy looks the best of the three. I like the color, just not on her. I am praying she has done nothing to her face as she looks a little waxy.

    Cokeburn just needs to burn those pants. I like the menswear feel, but if you are going to go for that look, go for it and wear clothes that fit.

  8. Sabrina says:

    None of them look that good, but out of all of them Amy looks the best.

  9. Tanguerita says:

    it’s like a galery of freaks happening here. What are these cutouts on Amy’s dress?Dis she plan to sweat profusely and chose her dress accordingly? I like the idea of Rooney’s dress, but the length is horrible and the shoes have to go.

  10. Apples says:

    Um, Oliva’s new last name is COCKBURN??
    No wonder he became a comedian.
    I can’t imagine growing up with that name.

  11. Patricia says:

    I’m pretty easy going with fashion but I just can’t get behind ANY of these looks. What an amazing coincidence that they all chose outfits that define the word unflattering. There is only one single thing I like out of all of it and that is Cockburn’s necklace.

  12. EmmaV1 says:

    Rooney Mara’s skin is amazing. For Amy Adams, you can see the thick, thick layer of foundation she’s wearing.

  13. QQ says:

    Joaquin looks clammy greasy and bloated :(

    Rooney looks like a possessed person giving you sexy stare realness which also: NO

    I dont understand anything about Amy Adams ill fitting white band at the bottom home ec looking dress

    Olivia Wilde looks like a single 45 year old schoolmarm interpreting an “after school drinks at a fancy bar” dress code

  14. mercy says:

    The outfits aren’t that great and they overwhelm all of them, but I love Amy and that colour is good on her. She and Joaquin outclass the other actors by a whole lot.

  15. nico says:

    Rooney’s make-up is flawless.

    Amy’s face looks different.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Why is no one yelling at Mara for not smiling, the way that everyone always yells at Carey Mulligan?

      Amy Adams’ face has been looking different for a while now. I’m not sure what she’s done to it, maybe some fillers. I hate to say it, but she looks great–better than before–with the stuff she’s had done.

  16. Dani2 says:

    #teamnoone even though these three ladies are some of my faves in Hollywood right now.

  17. eliza says:

    They all look a hot mess. Amyb looks 10 yrs older than her age in these photos.

  18. Kathie says:

    Joaquin’s hairO_O!!I can’t even describe my hatred for that mess…he did finish shooting inherent vice, didn’t he? there’s absolutely no point in keeping that long gross hair. AND HIS BOOTS. He wore them to the immigrants screening last month, even James Gary couldn’t help joking about those fuckin boots :’(
    Anyway, still looking forward to Her, Spike Jonze never disappointed me in the past. And why is there no Spike pic? he looked/dressed way better than his actors TBH

  19. Kiddo says:

    Inexplicably, I’m going to have to vote for Joaquin Phoenix in this line-up even though he wasn’t a contestant.

  20. Chinoiserie says:

    Rooney Mara would look great if her dress was shorter, she has the best make-up.
    I love Amy but this did not really work.
    And I would say that Olivia looked good if her pants were slightly shorter and this was a business meeting or something,

  21. Eve says:

    Phoenix’s look may be a hot mess here, but he looks great in the poster for “Her”:

    Anyway, LOVE this man — his performances are nothing short of amazing so he can dress however the f*ck he likes when he’s not filming.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Joaquin always looks so sad–is it true that he hasn’t really been in a relationship since Liv Tyler?

      Amazing actor though. I couldn’t believe he was 26 when he did Gladiator. I mean, how many 26 year olds are actually doing complicated roles like that–and can actually pull them off. I feel like guys are only two things when they’re young-the action hero or the leading man.

  22. TheOriginalWaffle says:

    I like the dress on Rooney Mara. The cut out is perfect. It’s the shoes that let it down.

  23. MaryMaria says:

    If you see Amy’s pic closer you will see “hair” under her arm pit…that is gross!!!

  24. Shoe_Lover says:

    Has anyone seen Rooney Mara’s perfume ad? When she is standing on that ledge and turns her head and is smiling I get so creeped out. Its the most forced unnatural smile.

  25. Tiffany says:

    Did Amy Adams get married and not announce it. That looks like a wedding band with her ring.

    River was much more handsome :/
