We're not 100% sure how these quotes could have been taken out of context…but we're listening!
Last week, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Rooney Mara opened up about her first role, which was a guest spot on Law & Order, and she had less-than-positive things to say about it.
She had reportedly called the role "so awful" and "so stupid" because her character beat up "fat people" and Rooney felt that people wouldn't actually beat someone up because they're fat…which of course is bullshiz. Unfortunately that kind of thing DOES happen. Too much.
Now, Rooney has opened up about her L & O comments, and she's claiming that she was quoted of context:
"First of all, the SVU thing — that's just not true. That was my first job. It couldn't have been more exciting for me. It's an experience I hold very dear to my heart. People take things out of context, and that's just not the case. I was more nervous doing that job than I was doing this job…"
"It's really silly. People, especially with young girls, they feel the need to make them out to be a certain way, and I feel so grateful for any job I've ever gotten. I feel grateful for the student jobs I did, I feel grateful for being an extra in some of the things my sister did. I feel like every single job that I've done has shaped who I am and has led me to where I am now."
And more from Rooney:
"It's hard to have to talk about yourself all the time and things are out of context, and whatever that quote was, I don't know, but it's certainly not what I meant. If anything, I didn't mean that the storyline was ridiculous; I meant that humanity is ridiculous. I know that Law & Order makes their episodes out of real things that are happening in the city, so to me, by "ridiculous" I meant that humanity is ridiculous. People are awful to one another; and to me, I find it ridiculous."
Okay, okay. We'll let this one go, but we REALLY hope we don't hear any more ungrateful comments from U, Rooney! UR very talented, but that's not an excuse to get all divarrific about it!
