Rooney Mara Untangles “Side Effects!” See My Fun Interview!

Uploaded on Thursday 7 February 2013


Rooney Mara (“The Social Network,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) is an incredible enigma. She has a knack for stealing scenes (yes, you remember her as the jilted girlfriend in “The Social Network” and she was only in few scenes) and carried “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” from start to finish. She was awarded an Oscar nomination for that film.

In “Side Effects,” she plays a woman battling depression and anxiety after her husband, Channing Tatum’s Martin, went to prison for insider trading. As soon as he gets out of jail, things get complicated with Mara’s Emily trying to kill herself. So Jude Law’s Dr. Banks prescribes a pill that adds layers to the drama. In this interview, we talked about:

*** What attracted her to her character Emily?
*** The unpredictability of the script
*** Jude Law’s character
*** Working with Channing Tatum
*** Mental health versus violence
*** What makes her happy?
