Rooney Mara Is Your New Megan Fox

January 3rd, 2012 // 85 Comments

As the marketing machine for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo geared up last month, virtually unknown actress Rooney Mara decided to introduce herself to the world by pulling a Megan Fox and shitting all over her first acting experience on Law & Order: SVU. A job she was obviously way too good for. She’s since walked back those comments, only to turn around and start shitting on another acting gig because apparently once you audition for a movie you have to be in it or the best boy’s allowed to rape your entire family. Via Digital Spy:

“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’.”

In Rooney Mara’s defense, I know how much it sucks to somehow make a comfortable living finding work in your field of choice. Talk about a giant pain in the ass. It’s like having a hangnail, but someone pays you hundreds of thousands dollars for it. You might as well have cancer.

    i’d pee in her butt.

    I like your perspective Fish.

    Poor Rooney Mara, having billionaires on both sides of your family that own NFL teams must really suck. You know having to pull yourself up by your Equestrian bootstraps to find work in Hollywood must have been really tough.

    BTW, your movie was an utter flop at the box office.

    she’s from a super-rich family, so she doesn’t really have to work, ever. but i wish she wouldn’t sound like the spoiled rich kid she is.

    It’s not serious acting unless she’s forced to pierce her nose or clit in order to identify with the character.

  6. The joaker

    I’ve already seen her naked. Don’t care anymore

  7. It's the kimkim, bitches

    She’s an ungrateful little cunt. Fuck her.

  8. Richard McBeef

    Right, right, like when I was jacking off for show at truckstops — I’m not supposed to complain about it because it provided a comfortable living in my field of choice? Fuck that.

    • TheListener

      For an actress to complain that she didn’t like a role she earned after auditioning for a part is kind of like a prostitute complaining that she doesn’t want to have sex with a john after she sees how ugly he is.
      In both cases, JUST TURN DOWN THE JOB.

      I’m sorry, but this is the only analogy I can come up with on the spur of the moment.

      • Ron

        I have a job that I interviewed for that I didn’t want and only took to get me more experience and get me further into doing more things I want to do. I complain all the time about the job.

        I assume a good amount of the d bags commenting do the same. Only difference is you don’t have the whole world watching you while you shit talk jobs you took even tho you didn’t want them.

      • TheListener

        Ron, you know what they say about a person who “assumes” things. LOL

  9. tonawanda

    She’s the beneficiary of the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers ownership families: spoiled brat.

    Where do these people come from? She has earned nothing in her life. Never will have to, either.

    • Drew

      Are you jealous or something? I can’t really see a point you’re trying to make. She’s not Kim Kardashian.

      The rich have luxuries we don’t have. Go figure.

    • qwerty

      What? She’s said already her father has 10 siblings and she has like 80 cousins so she’s not exactly Paris Hilton

      • Burt

        You’re naive if you think her family’s connections didn’t help her out and that nepotism isn’t big in Hollywood. James Wood once said something along the line that he’s a freak because he’s the only one in the business who isn’t related to someone else in Hollywood.

  11. Holy crap… she looks… different. And she’s definitely not as hot as Megan Fox, but maybe that means she’s a REAL actress? Ha.

    • EricLr

      I’ll rather hire her Swedish predecessor for a lot cheaper and not have to listen to her whine.

    • Archies_Leach

      Saying “not as hot as Megan Fox” can be construed as an outright insult cause obviously you haven’t seem Megan Fox recently.

    • Jam

      Kate Mara does??? Fuck off, she’s way hotter than this. That said, I’m kind of warming up to this one as well

  13. • Decent legs
    • Potential of nice ass (difficult to determine due to clothing)
    • Smallish breasts
    • So-so face and hair
    • Abysmal attitude …all in all I give her a C+

  15. dontkillthemessenger

    She didn’t use the word “MEDIOCRE”. At least she has that going for her.

  16. Cristina

    This girl is far worse than Megan Fox. She’s an ungrateful, spoiled brat and nowhere near as good looking.

    • Mandy

      Agreed. Megan Fox said some stupid things in interviews, but I like to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she just put her foot in her mouth. I don’t think Fox is a straight up bitch, she just said the wrongs things to the wrong people.
      But THIS is beyond that. If you hate a job so much, don’t do it. Like someone else said on here, it’s one thing to complain about your job to your friends/family. But not to the public and future employers.

    • Mike

      Give me a break. All this talk about Megan Fox makes it sounds like Michael Bay is Francis Ford Coppola. I watched “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”. Let’s just say Megan bailed when it was good. Who gives a shit if DOTM made a billion bucks in theatres? It was so boring, and it basically crapped on the foundations of what could’ve made the last two films so memorable. Fuck Michael Bay and his propaganda.

      And how come there’s no news stories of Rosie Huntington Whitely getting movie deals? I thought people were rooting for her to succeed. Now she’s just doing appearances and whatnot. I don’t hate the girl, but when Megan came on the scene, she got movie deals. She still is apparantly, what with that film with Jon Hamm and Kristin Wiig, a Judd Apatow film, a cameo in “The Dictator” with Sacha Baron Cohen (she poked fun of her image from what I’ve sen in the trailer), and possibly appearing in a sci-fi film with CBM actors Chris Evans (Captain America) and Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man).

    • Its always fun to watch ugly chicks get pissed at certain starlets.

      • Cristina

        Because I’m a girl and I pointed out the obvious, I must be “ugly” and “pissed?” Lol, you’re an idiot.

  17. Dick

    Not Hot. Really plain.

  18. stratacat

    This bitch is hilarious; she takes herself so seriously. Too bad she’s not nearly as hot as Megan Fox.

  19. Steelerchick

    She will fall back on her grandparents $$$$ if the acting thing doesn’t pan out.
    They are very wealthy!

  20. The Jews, Rooney. Don’t forget to mention the Jews. That’s how you fuck your career.

  21. Dan

    I thought she did a good job in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    Also, Law and Order is stupid, but if I had a job acting in it that paid me I wouldn’t say that out loud. Sort of like my jobs I had while in college – all of them sucked but I was *happy* to have them.

    Poor taste. Not classy.

    Spoiled and a little full of yourself, Rooney.

  22. Do_Freebird

    Unfortunately, since the movie is a hit, we will have to deal with her for at least a couple more films. Then people will grow tired of her particular looks and style {read slutty Amish}. At that point she will insult some Hollywood big timer and move back into either the Rooney or Mara compound where she will be waited on hand and foot, until a servant get pissed at her haughtiness and cuts her throat.

    • Myers

      A hit? The movie made 27 million in 6 days and the studio expected it to do that on opening weekend.

      What will be nice is watching the inevitable drug rampage this spoiled little twat will go on and kill her career.

    • Venom

      A hit? Is is a fucking flop.

      It has barely done $70 million worldwide and it cost well over $100 million to make and it was promoted heavily. In contrast and in much less time Tintin and MI4 have both made over $300 million worldwide.

      • Felonious Monkey

        The Swedish version with Noomi Rapace was really good and a worldwide hit. I am curious about the American version because of director David Fincher and the Trent Reznor soundtrack.
        Perhaps this movie would have done better if it opened later and not during the holidays?
        Rich bitch complaining about working? Typical.

      • It still hasn’t opened in most of the world. It’ll probably end up grossing $175-$200M worldwide. Maybe it won’t turn a profit until cable and video sales come in, but I wouldn’t call it a flop. A disappointment, perhaps.

  23. TheListener

    Here’s the thing. Complaining about a job is fine when you complain to your friends, family, and even other colleagues in the business, but complaining to the media is disrespectful of those you work with, rude and unprofessional.
    Katherine Heigl made comments about the writing for her character on Grey’s Anatomy and again about her character in Knocked Up. She kind of came off like a snob in both instances. Actors need to learn to keep their mouths shut WITH THE MEDIA if they have something bad to say about a project they are working on.

    • Burt

      Reporters have strategies they use to disarm their interviewees. Those who fall for it aren’t exactly the sharpest ones.

  24. I feel her. Sometimes I go to job interviews where I’m competing with other applicants who have families that depend on them and need the income and would be really grateful for any opportunity to work and I’m all like “DAMMIT I nailed it!” And then the company offers me the job and I’m all like, “Why the fuck would you suppose I’d want this job?” Jesus. This industry, right? It’s so much bullshit. And then I go ahead and go to forty more job interviews because, you know, acting.

  25. EricLr

    It’s always sweet to see a naive young actress who doesn’t realize the clock is already ticking.

  26. SisterRay

    Nah, less annoying because she’s not that hot. It’s true.

  27. I hate my job. That said, I’ve grown accustomed to clothing, food and shelter.

    Call me, Rooney. We’ve got a lot in common, it seems.

  28. Nick

    I’ve been sitting here 5 minutes trying to wrap my head around just what a f@ckin’ nimrod this little twat is. But I still can’t get over her audacity.

  29. adolf hitler

    dont even compare fox to this wonderful specimen.

  30. That Guy

    I’m pulling my nose hairs!

  31. AnnaDraconida

    She’s nothing special. She might even get an Oscar nomination for looking uglier than usual as that goth chick in Dragon Tattoo. The Swedish actress in the original films >>>>> this twat

    The headline on this is absurd. This chick looks like the Walking Dead.

  35. Burt

    Redheads who die their hair black look even weirder to me than Asians who die their hair blonde.

  36. Porkpie

    Another stupid bitch who isn’t smart enough to know how stupid she is, so she opens her mouth and stupid things come out. She’ll be an IT girl for a little while and be replaced by another skinny stupid shitbag.

  37. tlmck

    If she is the new Megan Fox, then Ali Lohan is the new Rooney Mara.

    Basically what Hollywood is saying is that they just don’t give a crap anymore.

  38. Sparkyinfla

    Megan Fox? Not even on the same planet. Don’t lie to us and try to pass off these average looking stars as stunning beauties, they are not. Like the media’s decades long campaign on SJP, she is not and never will be a hot looking actress, a good actress maybe, but not hot. Just stop it.

  40. So, is she my new bitch who can’t act and gets roles because of her slutty face? also weird thumbs.

  41. Mia

    Yep. Both are annoying, I don’t care about them, but I still want to see them naked.

  42. thatwasnotveryravenofyou

    This article is completely obnoxious. First of all, it makes no sense (your supposed connection with Megan Fox barely exists in context). Second, she was being honest, not ungrateful. I really despite this trend of JUMPING down a celebrity’s throat the SECOND they say something that can be construed as negative. That kind of culture only forces the dialogue between actors and fans to be completely fake and contrived. Rooney Mara says exactly what she thinks, and is honest. Actors are people too, and some jobs kind of suck, and she was asked about these things, and responded honestly. That makes her really refreshing. Not a jerk. Do you know who is a jerk? Whoever wrote this asinine article.

    • HailNo

      Refreshing?! Oh, STFU. The media does manipulate, but so do people who end up in the spotlight. It’s just that some are smarter and more seasoned at crafting their public images than this dumbfuck. She clearly trying to be all super-edgy but this bitch has already come off in live and written interviews as immature, unintelligent, and unclassy. If she had worked as hard as other actresses in her category to get where she’s already gotten so soon in her career, THEN she’d be more justified in being “honest.” She could’ve been candid but could have at least exercised a little more discretion. She hasn’t even solidly established herself in the business yet and she’s already making deragatory comments about opportunities other people would actually appreciate. She’s a spoiled twat with a stick up her ass who clearly doesn’t understand gratitude. Or, to give her the benefit of the doubt, she might just have a really low brain cell count.

    Some people really don’t know when to keep their mouth shut. Being a Hollywood actress you need to choose your words carefully if you want to make it and keep your place out there. That’s the price you pay for earning a buttload of money. Being “honest” in this case only makes her come across as an ungrateful brat and that’s not a good place to ba as a beginning actress. Liked her in the movie but this was just plain stupid.
