Rooney Mara: 'I Did not Really Even Want' 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'
When Rooney Mara is not commanding the screen using the talent of the old professional in 'The Girl Using the Dragon Tattoo,' she's trashing her previous companies. Only a month after apologizing for saying her stint on 'Law & Order: SVU' was "so awful" and "so stupid," Mara informs Entertainment Weekly that they did not really wish to come in the remake of 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' that assisted launch her film career. "You type of learn how to self-sabotage with things you won't want to get," she told EW inside a new interview (quotes not online). "Sometimes you won't want to go however, you perform a great job and also you have it anyway. Which was type of [what went down with] 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' -- I did not really even need it. After which I went in [to audition] and that i was like, [whispering] "Fuck, I certainly got that." Mara continues to express later within the interview that following 'Elm Street,' she "did not wish to act any longer." It had been only after finding the script for 'The Social Network' that Mara was "reinspired." Obviously, that collaboration with director David Fincher directly brought to her casting in 'The Girl Using the Dragon Tattoo.' All's well that finishes well.
