In that Vogue interview where she and David Fincher laid out their (to me, I could be totally wrong) screamingly obvious dom/sub relationship for ALL THE WORLD TO SEE, she took a break from weirding out the interviewer to talk about how people assume she's this sheltered trust-fund baby because she comes from a football-team-owning dynasty, and she's really not! She's worked for everything she has, guys! Really!...It wouldn't surprise me at all if she has NO IDEA about life.

I admit I am very impressed by the lengths she went to for this character, and maybe in ten years she'll look back on her interviews and be like "OH MY GOD" (I know when I think of some of the shit I cluelessly said ten years ago I want to die) so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt for now.

Everything about Rooney Mara makes me uncomfortable. From the unbelievable try-hard vibe in showing how hard-core she is, to the Fincher relationship, to her insistence that she grew up with no real advantages despite both sides of her family's immense wealth, to my belief that she kind of knows she's privileged, boring, and not that smart and so is desperately trying to hide that in every interview. I'm similarly put off by this whole campaign to annoint her as remarkably talented before she's earned any of it. They should've just let the film come out, because it's already feeling like a let-down even with her picking up a few awards nominations. They built up the hype around this film and her performance so much that anything less than a Best Picture/Actress dual win seems like a disappointment.

And if she is good in TGWTDT (which, to be fair, I have heard she is), I'll be interested to see how she does in subsequent films where she is less strongly directed than would appear to be the case with Fincher before I make any decisions on that front.

And wow, that was an awkward sentence right there.

Yeah, I'd be curious how she is with a different director.

And now she's worried the audience won't notice the effort that went into making her merkin accurate. If she can't find her brain-to-mouth filter, can't she find some decent media training? A publicist who will strongly tell her no? (Though that might need to be her own personal publicist--if you're trying to convince everyone of your film's lead actress's edginess, having her gab about crotchular stylings is one way to do that, I suppose.)

I don't know whether I hate her so much as I hate how much her interviews make me cringe.

I hope she has a long career and keeps saying stupid things, like Gwyneth Paltrow. It's all so entertaining.

See, I find Gwyneth to be tone deaf and maddening, but also endlessly entertaining. But Mara seems tone deaf and creepy, and yes, makes me uncomfortable.

Yeah, Gwyneth was entertaining, what with thinking everyone who wore boots and had straight hair was copying her, and wishing people would make more good movies like Top Gun. Rooney's just dull and kind of...I get the sense that she is actually kind of insecure and trying to mask it really badly.

Yes, I've realized that Rooney is less a Star I Hate and more a Star I Desperately Do Not Want To Be Seated With At A Dinner Party. She gives me the wiggins.

Maybe she'll age into a Gwyneth? Though I can't wrap my head around even a young Fishstick playing Lisbeth Salander.

Now I'm getting curious as to what the other Mara sister is like.

According to Rooney, much more likeable. Her on Kate:

“We’re so different that there’s never been a competitiveness between us in work. She is probably much more likable than I am. She’s really outgoing and fun. I’m definitely more of the odd sister.”

I am probably reading to much into it because of her attitude about other things but it wouldn't surprise me if she thinks she is better than Kate and more a "true artist."

I actually think shes coming off much worse then Gwyneth did. Gwyneth was tone deaf but she grew on me. Rooney Mara reminds me more of that time J.Lo gave that incredibly schaden-y in retrospect interview dissing every actress in Hollywood.

For me, Gwyneth went from annoying, to highly amusing annoying, to even more annoying than she was before. Now that she's actually acting in movies again and having pretensions of singing, I can't just enjoy laughing at GOOP the same way I used to because I CAN'T GET RID OF HER! I'd never say I hate her, though. She's just irritating as hell.

Rooney, you don't look as young as you think. You look older than 16, which means I'm not at all surprised that you've had boyfriends before. Shut up. However, you do look too young to be that pretentious. Again, shut up. Also, she and Kate look nothing alike, but once I saw her name in The Social Network, I thought they might be related just because of the last name. Kate is gorgeous, dude, and from the few things I've seen her, I rather like her. Jury's still out on Rooney, but I enjoyed her performance in TSN.

I have problems with Lainey and a lot of the things she writes, but I think she was spot on in her assessment of Rooney Mara.

and stare, wide-eyed at the camera like it couldn’t possibly begin to penetrate the many, many, many layers of her brilliance

That affectation of hers is irritating. What's so hard about a smile once in a while? Or a sneer? Or a smirk? A grin? Anything other than scary starey eyes. It doesn't always make you look deep - sometimes it just makes you look vacant.

Her vacant deer in the headlights look terrifies me, to be quite frank. She looks like she's stealing souls through her eyes.

I hate Vanessa Hudgens. I hate her annoying baby voice, her lack of both acting/singing talent, her obnoxious camera hog tendencies, her smirky face. All of it. It's extremely frightening to feel this strongly about someone so irrelevant, but just her face pisses me off.

swsa, I agree with you so much on all of this. I don't even think Hudgens would bother me if she didn't have that self-satisfied smirk on her face all of the time, and yet there it is. In every picture.

I feel the same way about Kim Kardashian: self-satisfied smirk that looks ridiculous, but she probably thinks it looks sexy. I think everyone hates Kim, though.

Vanessa Hudgens still ranks as a celeb?
