Yahoo: The 10 Breakout Female Stars of 2010

ROONEY MARA
Age: 25
In her first few acting jobs, she went by her given name “Patricia.” But she says she never really liked it, so she started going by her more memorable middle name. This year, she nabbed her first leading role in April’s remake of the horror classic “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” She’ll soon be appearing in director David Fincher’s “The Social Network,” but she really made headlines when it was announced she’ll be re-teaming with Fincher for the upcoming American adaptation of the runaway bestselling book “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

Girl With Dragon Tattoo meets Clockwork Orange in the latest Hollywood romantic blockbuster

She is one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood, while he has yet to make a name for himself – but his father’s will turn back the clock for film fans.

Overnight sensation Rooney Mara – just cast as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – is dating fledgling director Charles McDowell, the son of A Clockwork Orange star Malcolm McDowell.

These exclusive photographs show the couple, who have been dating since the start of the year, in Los Angeles shortly before Mara, 25, flew to Sweden to begin filming her role opposite Daniel Craig.

McDowell, 27, is certainly well-connected – his mother is actress Mary Steenburgen.

She divorced Malcolm McDowell when Charles was seven and she later married former Cheers star Ted Danson.
