Rooney Mara doesn't want to be overshadowed by fame
'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' star Rooney Mara is worried fame could be harmful to her abilities as an actress
'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' star Rooney Mara is worried fame could be harmful to her abilities as an actress.
The 26-year-old is worried that commercial success will divert attention from her career, reported Contactmusic. "I want to be an actress, I didn't want to become an actress to become a celebrity at all.
I think that actually hurts your ability to be a good actor, the more people know who you are the less able they are to see you as a character," Mara said.
The actress also said that the celebrity culture is out of control but is hopeful she won't let it damage her too much.
"Being a celebrity is certainly not something I ever wanted for myself, but it's obviously a reality of the business I chose to be in. It's a very bizarre part of our culture that's sort of grown out of control and hopefully won't affect me that much."
