Ugh, could Rooney Mara be any more obnoxious?!

Girl thinks she’s like, the most important person ever. Or not, or she just SOUNDS like she thinks she’s the most important person ever.  I guess being David Fincher‘s muse can really get to one’s head. Here’s a taste:

The pressure of selling a movie: “As an actor, you can’t just be in the film. You’re also in charge of selling it, and so you have to be very political and make sure to not say the wrong things. It’s exhausting. A lot of pressure is put on the people who were hired to make – not even to make, to be a part of making – the thing.”

Her football family (she’s the granddaughter of Pittsburgh Steelers founder and the daughter of the NY Giants founder): She insists her upbringing was “privileged” but ordinary, “People think that I grew up going to Barneys for my back-to-school clothes. I went to the Gap. We lived in a nice house on a cul-de-sac, but it wasn’t a mansion. We didn’t have a butler or a maid.”

Whether she follows football: “I’m so not keyed into it” but says she finds it “meaningful” when one of the teams is doing well “because it means so much to the whole family.”

What she felt when David Fincher joked about her trust fund: “He was being ironic. After that article came out, I was like ‘F—k you, David. I wish I had my g-ddamned trust fund.’”

Whether she regrets playing Tiger Lily in Pan: “In hindsight, I wish I hadn’t put myself in that position.”

Oscar hopes: “Getting nominated means something, you will get better parts, and I really do want people to see the film. But I don’t feel like it’s something I’m desperate for. I would forgo it all to keep my integrity.”

She’s so aloof: “I’ve always been a very sensitive person and people tell me that if I’m in a certain mood and I go into a room, my mood will permeate the room. It’s not on purpose – I’d rather be invisible in those moments – but I’m really bad at faking how I feel. Like, my emotions kind of live all over my body at all times, and there’s not a good way for me to hide it. Because I’m highly empathetic, it’s easy for me put myself in the character’s shoes.”

She’s so hardcore: “People don’t really want me to be honest. People want me – people want girls – to be grateful, gracious, poised. Not real. I watch interviews from the 1970s, of Patti Smith or John Cassavetes, and everyone’s smoking, drinking, totally misbehaving, but they’re being completely authentic, and I’m so jealous because that would never happen today. There’s always a pre-interview, so you know what jokes you have to hit, and there’s nothing genuine about it. And I hate that. I hate being a phony. I hate having to censor myself.”
