Watch Your Back Kristen Stewart!! Rooney Mara Stole Your Part. Could She Steal Your Whole Career?

Wed, August 18, 2010 4:33pm EDT by 19 Comments

Fame comes and goes pretty fast these days. For the past year Kristen Stewart has been Hollywood’s leading “it” girl while portraying Bella Swan in the Twilight franchise, but she lost out to newcomer Rooney Mara for the next generation of book-to-screen-heroine, Lisbeth Salander.

And in the fickle world of fame it isn’t hard to envision a future where Rooney can use her leverage in the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo franchise to eclipse Kristen’s star power. The pair will obviously be competing for similar roles going forward. They’re both talented young actresses of a certain age with the acting chops it takes to tackle difficult roles. But in some ways, Rooney will emerge from the Dragon Tattoo movies with an edge over Kristen.

“Kristen needs to watch her back. This is the kind of role that can change a young womans life. But let’s see how the movie does. I think it is premature to kill off Miss. Kristen just yet,” says PopEater’s Naughty But Nice Rob Shuter.

The character of Lisbeth Salander, the bisexual, introverted, highly sexualized hacker cum private detective is one of the most complicated female roles to wind its way onto the screen in a long time. The role is so beloved by fans that entire websites and Facebook pages have been devoted to debating which actress could possibly fill Lisbeth’ s combat boots.

Cult of Celebrity author Cooper Lawrence has no doubt that Rooney could easily eclipse (pun entirely intended) Kristen’s fame.

“Not only is she in GWTDT she is also in Social Network, the other HUGE movie coming out. Rooney has an older sister who is a working actress who can keep her in line, she founded a charity organization and her personal profile is as sweet as is that face! Kristen is already known for being a kind of curmudgeon, she tries to be unlikable despite her film’s popularity, whereas Rooney is much sweeter,” Lawrence says.

“We no longer have room for everybody, we are an information hungry society and if KStew wont give us anything real, we will move on and tire of her. If she is arrogant enough to think she won’t be replaced in the hearts and minds of fans, tell her to call Hanson and ask how things are going.”

What do you think? Could Rooney steal the spotlight from Kristen?

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I believe that you ought to publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people do not speak about
such issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

Kristen wasn’t even on the list to play the part.I love Kristen and I always have well before Twilight, I’m a new fan of Rooney Mara she is very talented she REMINDS me of Kristen because of the way they interview and their edginess but that is about it. I would have liked to see Kristen play the part but i think Rooney did a sick job in the movie, seriously really good. But why does everything have to be a competition. I think most of us can agree both Rooney and Kristen are very hot, talented, interesting female actresses that we would love to see more of, can we not just leave it at that.

Kristen Stewart can’t act, and she won’t have much of a career anyway, so it doesn’t matter. But just as well she didn’t get this role, she would have ruined the movie.

@jenLOL! You’re right! Sony’s keep stirring the pot, because when they made their official announcement of who finally got the role, it was eclipsed by Kristen and Robert’s kissing picture. The fact is it was already an old story when people made the time to read it. The impact was lost! Now they are recouping using of course the fame of Kristen Stewart as a launching pad. What else is new?

The only ones who should watch out is Sony for the casting for this movie. I lost interest the minute they started announcing the cast. The only person who could have made the movie amazing would have been Kristen Stewart.
And dumping Daniel Craig. Sony is the real loser here.

This waste of disk space “article” is just proof that ANYONE can be a blogger, ANYONE can run a website, and ANYONE can scrape stories from real entertainment news feeds and put an imbecilic spin on the story.

You whole article is downright laughable. This is a pathetic excuse for an article. First off, neither Kristen nor her team ever stated publically that she was interested in this movie. Second, her schedule is completely full because of Twilight so she wasn’t going to be able to do the movie anyway. Maybe if you had done a better job of researching you would’ve come up with the real list of contenders for this role…and let me tell you a secret Kristen’s name won’t be on it.

And about Rooney Mara stealing the spotlight from Kristen Stewart, well, shouldn’t her announcement as Lisbeth Salander have done that? Problem is, nobody gave a rat’s azz when Rooney Mara was announced as Salander. Her announcement was dead-on-arrival. So what does Sony do? Well, yes, put Kristen Stewart in the headline even if the final selection didn’t even include Kristen Stewart. Look Sony, you couldn’t wait for Stewart. Stop using her name already to draw attention to this trilogy and let Rooney Mara take the burden, as she should. Kristen Stewart carried Twilght’s Bella Swan to three blockbusters so far. Don’t put the burden of creating buzz for Dragon Tattoo rest on Kristen Stewart. Like, hello! She’s NOT in your movie. Make Rooney Mara work her azz and do her job, as she should.

The only reason Kristen Stewart is in this headline is because nobody gave a sh!t after Rooney Mara was announced as Lisbeth Salander. Repeat that: Nobody. Gave. A. Sh!t. The announcement did nothing to increase the buzz on the upcoming movie nor increase book sales. So what’s the best way to draw attention to Rooney Mara? Put Kristen Stewart in the headline of course! Sony made a huge mistake rushing to make this movie without Kristen Stewart. Stewart will be free by March next year. Sony should have waited. Nothing is worse than a potential trilogy tanking on its first installment. Lisbeth Salander with dimples? LOL! Prepare to lose money Sony. You should have waited for Kristen. But since you didn’t and are only realising your mistake now, what’s the harm in using her name every possible way, right?

first i hope Rooney will give a better perfomance than what she did in nightmare on elm street. And then kristen was out of that competition because of schedule conflict.she is going to film breaking dawn for 6 months. a lot actresses like Ellen page, carey mulligan,wanted to play Salander so i guess she is going to stole their career too.RIDICULOUS. The twilight saga will be over after 2012 ( 2years and 3 months exactly)..So kristen will have a lot of opportunities.She is a A list actress like Ellen page, nathalie portman …her movie on the road is the more anticipated movie for 2011 with a great cast and a phenomenal director…She is HERE TO STAY.

Nobody stole anybody’s role, Kristen wouldnt have even been able to carry out the filming any way, as there shooting Breaking Dawn from November 1st until March! And then there’s conventions and conference’s, she wouldnt have had the time!
And like the other comments Kristen and Bella are here to stay!
Kristen’s fame wont die down until alittle while after Breaking Dawn part 2 (Which is the end of 2012) and even then, i’ll still love her, and Rob!
I ADORE YOU KRISTEN…. :D

Kristen doesn’t have the right look for the role. Salander is a ‘doll like’ character.

I can’t pass judgment on the acting chops of Mara Rooney cause I’ve never seen her in anything, but K-Stew is here to stay and so is Bella Swan. Lisbeth Sanders is an iconic character, but she’s also severely damaged goods….people will be drawn to her, but also repelled by her. Bella Swan is downright beloved !!!

I don’t know if she will be able to take the spotlight off of Kristen because I think a lot of the attention around Kristen stems from her work in Twilight and her boyfriend, so unless the hype of Twilight and Rob goes away — Kristen is here to stay.
