There’s no doubt that Rooney Mara She is one of the most interesting active actresses on the current scene, and we only need to take a look at his recent filmography to verify this. To his work in ‘Her’, ‘Carol’ – for which he received his second Oscar nomination – or in ‘A Ghost Story’ let us add to his last two brilliant works in ‘The Alley of Lost Souls’ by Guillermo del Toro Will and Sarah Polley celebrated ‘Ellas Habland’.
however, there was A defining moment in Mara’s career that robbed us of her on-screen brilliance and magnetism, This takes us back to the year 2010, when ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Origin’ was released; A rather watery remake of Wes Craven’s Jewel, the filming of which is not recalled with particular enthusiasm by the interpreter.
Within the framework of the LaunchLeft podcast, the actress told how her experience was on the set of the film directed by Samuel Bayer made him a more selective professional With the projects in which he decides to get involved.
“A few years before ‘Millennium: The Men Who Didn’t Love Women,’ I did a remake of ‘Nightmare on Elm Street,’ which was not a good experience. I have to be careful what I say and how I talk about it.” Making it wasn’t the best experience and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m still where I don’t want to act unless I’m doing something that I feel like doing So after making that movie, somehow, I decided, ‘Okay, I’m not going to act unless it’s something that makes me feel like it.'”
fortunately, shortly after David Fincher arrives to restore Mara’s confidenceIt took a lot on her part to become the Lisbeth Salander that helped her nab her first Oscar nomination.
“I got an audition for ‘The Social Network,’ which was a small role but was in an amazing scene, and then I didn’t go back to work until ‘Millennium,’ I think. David didn’t take my audition. wanted because they didn’t think I was right for it. Based on what I did on ‘The Social Network,’ and I insisted on doing it. Then they fought really hard to get the part for me, Because the studio didn’t want me. It was a real turning point in my life and my running”.
The experience of working with Fincher, whose reputation as a relentless perfectionist invites you to think of something radically different than kindness and nurturing, It was decisive for the future of the actress,
“I worked on it for a year straight. I was under David. He became my mentor in many ways. He was very careful to make sure I knew I had a voice and I meant something. . They constantly empowered me, which I realized would impact the rest of my choices after that.”
