Be­liev­able plot­line on Law & Or­der? Fat chance

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TV -

ROONEY Mara (pic­tured) didn’t en­joy her first ma­jor act­ing job on Law & Or­der: Spe­cial Vic­tims Unit be­cause she thought the plot­line was ‘‘stupid’’. The ac­tress starred in an episode of the hit cop drama called Fat in 2006. Mara tells Al­lure mag­a­zine that although it was her big­gest role at that point in her ca­reer, she was em­bar­rassed by her scenes. ‘‘It was so aw­ful,’’ she says. ‘‘So stupid. 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? Peo­ple are ob­sessed with that show. I don’t get it.’’ Mara has gone on to be­come one of Hol­ly­wood’s most in­de­mand stars af­ter land­ing the ti­tle role in David Fincher’s thriller The Girl With the Dragon Tat­too.
