The weird rumblings coming out of people's mouths lately when asked about THE SOCIAL NETWORK seem to be confounding most of us movie (over)enthusiasts. I've heard many people getting the response from others they know that they're not interested in seeing the flick because they don't want to "watch a Facebook movie for 2 hours." Hmm. I wonder if these people are similar to the people I know saying close to the same thing and yet attached to the Face as if their cell phone apps were their virtual umbilical cords. I don't front... I spend more time than I should at that site as well as the web in general, so I thought it might be time to take a break and discuss one of the movie's hotties for this week.
OK, I haven't seen YOUTH IN REVOLT. Nor have I watched the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET reboot yet. So I don't really have the necessary information on which to judge Rooney Mara, the younger sister of the very hot and fairly talented Kate Mara. I do know that when I look at her, the last role that I think she should be in is that of Lisbeth Salander from the Larsson series. But seeing as how she's currently filming the English/American/whatever they're calling it version of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, there's no way for me to organize a Facebook page to get someone else cast. (Or preferably not have an American-slash-whatever version in the first place.)
I like Rooney's sister Kate. But how unfair is it that the two will be compared because they're related and they're both in the same career industry? I don't have any siblings close to me in age so I never grew up understanding that comparison thing that people do but I have to admit that it must suck. I really need to see if this girl can act because when I look at her, she personally does nothing for me on a cold first glance.
Let's do my rundown. Rooney has nice eyes. Great bone structure in the face but those weird ears that skinny girls with big heads have. And yeah... way too skinny for my tastes. But she does have personality to her look, something that not as many actresses, some of which are famous to a perturbing level. I will venture to say that as of this moment, I think Rooney Mara is cute, but definitely does not ping on my hottie radar.
What do you think of Rooney Mara?
