Well, folks, apparently Rooney Mara wasn’t exactly happy to get in on the Nightmare on Elm Street remake, as we discovered in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview with her.
Entertainment Weekly was talking to Mara, who recently got a big part in the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and not surprisingly the topic turned to her round as Nancy Holbrook. Mara, meanwhile, reportedly had this to say:
“You kind of learn to self-sabotage with thing you don’t want to get,” she tells the magazine. “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] “F—. I definitely got that.”
Sort of a kick in the teeth, really, to discover that she thinks so little of the role that made her big, but it doesn’t really matter. She gave us a fun time in Nightmare on Elm Street, and I’ll be happy to see what this terror hottie does next. And she always will be a terror hottie.
