Rooney Mara on Her Law & Order: SVU Role: "It Was So Awful"

In an interview with Allure the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star called her 2006 guest role "stupid" and "ridiculous." She also added: "People are obsessed with that show. I don't get it."

Now, Mara  is singing a different tune. "It's certainly not what I meant," she told the Huffington Post. "If anything, I didn't mean that the storyline was ridiculous; I meant that humanity is ridiculous. I know that Law & Order makes their episodes out of real things that are happening in the city, so to me, by 'ridiculous' I meant that humanity is ridiculous."

Mara also said she's thankful for that role, which was her first real acting gig.

"It couldn't have been more exciting for me, she said. "It's an experience I hold very dear to my heart. People take things out of context, and that's just not the case. I was more nervous doing that job than I was doing [Dragon Tattoo]."
