« Rooney Mara talks about death and on-screen nudity in Interview magazine | Rooney Mara: ‘I’ve been guarded since I was three years old’ »
written by Grace on February 19, 2013
Over the past two years, 27-year-oldÂ Rooney MaraÂ has emerged as one of the most talked about and talentedâif intriguingly complicated and enigmaticâyoung actresses of her generation. In fact, Mara’s ability to convey a range of often competing emotions without going over the topâused to such great effect in her Oscar-nominated performance as the determined-but-damaged hacker Lisbeth Salander inÂ The Girl with the Dragon Tattooâis party of what makes her so irresistibly watchable. But what’s she really like? On the eve of his retirement from feature-filmmaking, Steven Soderbergh, who directed Mara in the new psychological thrillerÂ Side Effects, graciously agreed to illuminate for us the completely unadulterated, absolutely unembellished, thoroughly unvarnished truth. Here, we present a Mara in full.
[Editorâs note: This interview was conducted via e-mail, and contains coarse language, discussions of nudity, and exorbitant amounts of biting sarcasm. Reader discretion is advised.]
STEVEN SODERBERGH: Did you think you were Little Miss Hot Shit in college, or did that come later?
ROONEY MARA: When I was at college, my nickname was Keds, because I wore Keds. I guess it wasnât really a nickname, because nicknames are usually given to you by people who are your friends and who know you. But I didnât know the people who called me Keds. I think that they didnât like me because I didnât want to join a sorority. I left that school.
SODERBERGH: Sounds like you would have been asked to leave if you hadnât left on your own, especially since you think that all sororities should be abolished. Your background is boring me, so letâs get to the movie stuff. When you were working with [David]Â FincherÂ onÂ The Girl With the Dragon TattooÂ , why did he have to do so many takes of all your scenes?
MARA: Har, har . . . Because I am such a pleasure to be around, Fincher would prolong my scenes so that I would be on set all of the time. And maybe because I am stubborn, I thought that I could out-stubborn him. But you canât out-stubborn a Finch. He was always right, though. Not everyone can make films with âless than one take,â like you.
SODERBERGH: So do you really have any tattoos? Or was that acting?
MARA: I donât have any. That was acting.
SODERBERGH: And are you an expert hacker? Or was that acting, too?
MARA: That was also acting. Unfortunately.
SODERBERGH: So why didnât you win the Oscar?
MARA: Lots of reasons . . . I know how much you love your Oscar. My dogâs name is Oskar.
SODERBERGH: As an Oscar-winner, I find that incredibly insulting. By the way, do you know that your dog hates the way you smell?
MARA: Heâs sleeping next to me right this very moment. He loves everything about me, bless his little heart.
SODERBERGH: In our movie,Â Side Effects, you were asked to play a woman who is struggling with clinical depressionâamongst other things. I must note for the record that, as your director, I did not see you do any preparation for this role. Do you wing it all the time, or were you just trying to fuck up this movie specifically?
MARA: Clearly, on the eve of your retirement, you stopped paying attention to everything. When I do a film, I follow the director. And because you wing everythingâlike this interviewâI decided that thatâs the way I should work as well.
SODERBERGH: I think we both know how much I prepared for this interview. But just to give theÂ InterviewÂ readers a little bit of insight . . . For the first week of shooting, I told you to do the opposite of what I wanted you to do, because I knew that you would do the opposite of what I asked. Then you stopped doing that, so I started asking you to do what I wanted, which you did for a while, and then I went back to asking for the opposite, and then, after about day nine, I was so medicated that Iâm not sure what happened. Tell me about that.
MARA: If you hadnât lost your ability to read people, you would have known that at first I was doing whatever you askedâand then slowly, bitterly, I started doing the opposite.
SODERBERGH: Glad it was a short shoot. By the way, you wanted your fee onÂ Side EffectsÂ to be paid to you in small, unmarked bills. Whatâs up with that?
MARA: Shh . . .

The ‘Side Effects’ star gets candid aboutt cursing, nudity and on-screen sex with co-star Channing Tatum in sit-down with her director, Stephen Soderbergh
Rooney Mara tells director Steven Soderbergh just how much she trusted him while filming âSide Effectsâ in the new Interview magazine.
âI just do what Iâm told, when Iâm told,â she says. âThere is a line, though â like when you asked me to do reverse cowgirl with Channing (Tatum, who plays Maraâs husband in âSide Effectsâ), and I put my foot down. If the character should be nude in the scene and it makes sense and I trust the person making the film â and I regret my decision to trust you now that I know you more â then I donât see a problem with it. I certainly donât want to be involved in anything that is gratuitous, but I donât think the human body is something to be ashamed of. Â
âEvery other person on the planet has the same parts as I do. So seeing them shouldnât be a huge shock to most people,â she says.
âFirst of all, reverse cowgirl occupies a very important position in porn â pun intended,â jokes Soderbergh. âPlus, you told me that you couldnât stand to look at Channing, so I was just trying to solve a problem.â
âYou would know,â she says âIf I recall, Channing didnât want to look at me.â
She also tells Soderbergh that she wonders about how a movie would be completed if she were to die part way through filming.
âSometimes I think about that â like, âOkay, if I died right now, would they have to reshoot the whole film? Or would they be able to edit around it,â says the former âGirl with the Dragon Tattoo.”
âThen I think through the scenes that are left to shoot, and weigh if they would be able to finish it or not.â
And growing up in the Mara house meant watching your mouth with bad words.
âWhen I was growing up,â she says, âI wasnât allowed to say âfart.â Fart was a swear word. We had to say âhonkâ instead â âHe honked!â A penis was a âwinky.â But these days, I like words with a little more punch.â
âLike doodie?â asks Soderbergh.
âLike c—,â says Rooney.

Hauntingly beautiful and more than a little mysterious,Â Rooney MaraÂ is Hollywoodâs most enigmatic leading lady.
âI feel a little, like . . . schizophrenic,â confides Rooney Mara of the quartet of radically different roles that she has taken on in the intense, whirlwind working year since David FincherâsÂ The Girl with the Dragon TattooÂ garnered her Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations and launched her into the starry firmament. Mara has just flown in forÂ Vogueâs cover shoot on the red eye from MĂ©rida, Mexico, where she wrapped Terrence Malickâs latest film. The idiosyncratic director was particularly demanding. âHeâs a genius,â says Mara, who is protective of Malickâs methodology, although she admits that âit was definitely the most challenging experience, just because every day is different. So even if one day you got into your groove or got the hang of it, the next day would be something else.â
Earlier in the year she worked with the antic Spike Jonze on the science-fiction romanceÂ Her,and with writer-director David Lowery on the independentÂ Ainât Them Bodies Saints,Â a love story set in the seventies in the hills of Texas. Meanwhile, her fourth project of 2012, Steven Soderberghâs suspenseful thrillerÂ Side Effects,Â is released this month.a
âItâs been very strange, jumping from one character to the next,â says the chameleon Mara. âAll four of them were very intense experiences. . . . I really feel sometimes like those things are happening to me. Obviously theyâre not. But itâs hard going from one to the next.
âAnd Iâm hypercritical of myself,â she adds in a masterpiece of understatement. âAnytime I see anything Iâve done, I wish that it had gone differently because you figure it out as you go along, and youâre always discovering new things. Iâd probably feel that way about anything that I did.â
She couldnât bear to see herself on-screen inÂ Dragon TattooÂ and famously resisted until she went to a theater near Manhattanâs Union Square and bought a ticket with the general public. âI really wanted to go alone,â she says, but her boyfriend, writer-director Charlie McDowell (the son of actors Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen), insisted on accompanying her. âHe was wise to come with me because if anyone had recognized me, I would have been so embarrassed.â • Read full story »
