Nothing and I honestly mean nothing burns me up more than hearing actors and actresses put down the horror genre. The horror genre is a great starting ground that has breed some of Hollywood’s finest. Don’t like the script? Don’t make the movie. Certainly don’t bitch about the movie later has Rooney Mara has done with the “Nightmare on Elm Street” remake. She has come out harshly in the press saying that it is a role that she didn’t even want.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Rooney Mara spoke about her time on the Elm Street remake.
“You kind of learn to self-sabotage with things you don’t want to get,” she tells EW. “Sometimes you don’t want to get something, but you do a really good job and you get in anyway. That’s kind of [what happened] with A Nightmare on Elm Street-I didn’t even really want it. And then I went in [to audition], and I was like, “Fuck. I definitely got that.”
Mara then went on to express her feelings after the film was released.
“”I didn’t want to act anymore,” Mara continues. “I was like, this isn’t what I signed up for. If this is what my opportunities are going to be like, then I’m not that interested in acting. So I was very discouraged and disheartened. And then I got the “The Social Network” script. That kind of inspired me.“
Mara added nothing to the “Elm Street” remake and to know that right from the beginning she had no intention of of even trying is the final nail in the coffin. What an ungrateful bitch. Good luck with karma.
