To the podcast LaunchLeftRooney Mara recalled that if she continued to make films, it is thanks to David Fincher :

“A few years before Millenium – The men who didn’t like women, I had done a remake of Freddy, the claws of the night, which was not a good experience. […] I’ve gotten to this point, and where I still am, where I don’t want to act out unless I’m doing things that I feel like I have to do. After making this film, I decided not to act anymore unless it was something worthwhile, and I had an audition for The Social Network […] and I didn’t work after until Millenium.

David [Fincher] didn’t want to audition me because he thought I wasn’t cut out for the part. […] I insisted and then he had to fight a lot to get me, because the studio didn’t want me. It was a real turning point in my life and career. […] I worked on the film for a year straight. David really took me under his wing. He became my mentor in many ways. He took great pains to make sure I knew I had a voice and that my opinion mattered. He constantly gave me power, which I think really influenced the rest of my choices after that. »

Even if Rooney Mara did not reveal behind the scenes of the horrific remake (politeness or wooden language obliges), David Fincher was at first the only one to believe in her. After freddiehe cast her for a small but memorable appearance in The Social Networkbefore giving her the role of Lisbeth Salander, which earned her a more than deserved Oscar nomination.

The director’s working method allowed the actress to assert herself and to think about the projects in which she really wanted to get involved, but that, in truth, she first showed tenaciously by proving to the master that she would be his Lisbeth Salander. Too bad the movie didn’t do enough at the box office to get a sequel.
