Rooney Mara: My Law & Order SVU Guest Spot Was "Awful," "Stupid"
Guess Rooney Mara's not a fan of Benson and Stabler.
The breakout starlet may have earned one of her first acting gigs thanks to Dick Wolf and NBC's Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, but the experience sure left a sour taste in her mouth.
Appearing as Jessica DeLay, whose character was brutally attacked by two overweight bullies on a 2006 episode titled "Fat," Mara, 26, dismissed the role as "so stupid."
"It was so awful," The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star sniped in the January issue of Allure. "Me and my boyfriend -- although I [didn't] look old enough to have a boyfriend -- went and beat up these fat people, and at the end of the show you find out that I used to be obese and I hate fat people. It's ridiculous. Who would ever do that? Who would beat someone up because they're fat?"
Argues Mara: "As retribution, they sodomized her [in the episode]. I mean, I've been sodomized since the beginning of my career. I should have known then it would come full circle."
As the show airs its 13th season, Mara refuses to buy into the sex crimes drama's hype.
"People are obsessed with that show," she tells Allure. "I don't get it."
