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.”
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.

“She was a sweetheart. She’s still new in the Industry, but I can tell she’s going to be in this a long time. She kind of reminded me of a Natalie Portman…her energy and everything.”
—The Social Network costar Cedric Sanders when we asked him what it was like working with Rooney Mara, ya know, the gal who just nabbed the lead in Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, aka the hottest role in Hollywood
Tall order to fill, seeing as Natalie is one of the best young actresses in this town. But from what we hear about Rooney, she’ll have no problem garnering just as much buzz for her acting chops, even though some aren’t as sweet in their compliments:
“F–k that girl,” a frequent competitor—for auditions, at least—dished about Rooney. Jokingly (we think). Indeed, we hear Rooney is a sweetie. This other rising actress has just lost way too many roles to be too happy that Mara’s going to be a huge box-office star.
And now that she’s going to be über-huge, thanks to the sensational Swedish book series, we guess she’ll be winning even more roles!
