Rooney Mara may have just nabbed a Golden Globe nomination for her “bewitching performance” in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but she better hope nobody from the Hollywood Foreign Press is a big fan of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Why, you ask? It seems when the actress was just starting out, she got one of her first big breaks on the long-running TV series back in 2006.
Well, that’s not exactly how Rooney remembers it…
“It was so awful. So stupid,” she tells Allure magazine (via Page Six) of her one-episode guest appearance. “Me and my boyfriend—although I [didn’t] look old enough to have a boyfriend—went and beat up these fat people, and at the end of the show you find out that I used to be obese and I hate fat people. It’s ridiculous. Who would ever do that? Who would beat someone up because they’re fat?”
What’s more, Rooney also had a few choice words regarding the program’s large fan base.
“People are obsessed with that show,” she says. “I don’t get it.”
Hmm..when it comes to stirring up L&O fans, Mara may be the girl who kicked the hornet’s nest.
