Rooney Mara Still Wants to Play Lisbeth Salander Again!

Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett walk the red carpet at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ 2015 Governors Awards on Saturday night (November 14) at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Hollywood.

The ladies were there to support their movie Carol. The night before, they attended a SAG-AFTRA Foundation conversation at the Pacific Design Center to promote the film as well.

Rooney was nominated for an Oscar a few years ago for her work as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and she still wants to play the character again in the planned sequel.

Despite rumors that Alicia Vikander is up for the role, Rooney told E! News that “as far as I know, I’m doing it until someone tells me otherwise.”

FYI: Rooney is wearing an Alexander McQueen jacket and dress. Cate is wearing Armani Prive with Casadei shoes and Neil Lane jewelry.

Rooney Mara Not Returning to 'Dragon Tattoo' Series, Alicia Vikander Eyed to Replace Her

Rooney Mara is not going to return to the Dragon Tattoo series for the upcoming The Girl in the Spider’s Web, The Wrap reports.

The 30-year-old actress’ co-star Daniel Craig and director David Fincher are also not set to return. Sony is eyeing Alicia Vikander to take over the iconic role in the late Stieg Larsson adaptations.

The studio was at first planning to take on The Girl Who Played With Fire, but they decided to do Spider’s Web. Fire will reportedly come later on.

Rooney was nominated for an Oscar in 2012 for her portrayal of Lisbeth in the series.

Rooney Mara Talks Stage Fright, Working with Cate Blanchett & More

Rooney Mara looks so surreal on the cover of Interview magazine’s November 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old Carol star had to share with the mag:

On stage fright: “On film, yes, the camera is watching you, but it’s so intimate. But it’s just you and the other actor and then there’s some people watching the monitor. I would like to do theater, but I’m terrified. I have such bad stage fright.
 I hate being on display like that. On stage, there are hundreds of people watching you. It’s so much energy directed at you. I pick up energy really easily. Even if I go to the grocery store and no one is paying attention to me, I can pick up other people’s moods and it’s really intense. I would not be able to perform on stage…but I’m sure it’s exhilarating.”

On being alone: “I like being alone. I need a lot of alone time as a human. And especially on a movie set when you’re around people all day long. So it’s actually kind of nice to go home to a hotel and be alone and unwind. But, of course, it gets lonely. It’s one of the weird parts about being an actor or a musician, we’re Gypsies. People ask me where I live, and I say L.A. or New York, but really I don’t spend much time in either of those places. I’m constantly either in hotels or somewhere else. But I like it. I might get tired of it at some point, but for now I like being a nomad.”

On working with Cate Blanchett: “I remember the first time I saw Cate, in Elizabeth [1998]. I think I was 13. I went to our little local theater with my mom, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, who is that woman?’ She’s just so incredible. It was pretty easy to pretend to be enamored by her. And she’s quick and witty and funny. She’s very confident. It’s amazing. Usually it’s not that great to meet your idols and work with them; it’s kind of a letdown. This definitely wasn’t. She’s much different than I had in my head, but kind of better, in a way. It was also obviously terrifying.”

Cate recently opened up about being bored with the conversation on whether there are enough complex roles for females in Hollywood.

“Every time there’s interesting, complex roles played by actresses on-screen, someone says, ‘Do you think this is a breakthrough?’ and ‘Does this mean there’s going to be more of the same?’” Cate told reporters (via VanityFair). “We seem to find ourselves in the same conversation and that’s somehow remarkable. I think there’s a swathe of great roles for women and, certainly, there’s some wonderful female performers. It’s just time to get on with it, really.”

Cate Blanchett Plays 'Shag, Marry, Kill' with Her 'Lord of the Rings' Co-Stars - Watch Now!

Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara get together for a picture at the Carol photo call during the BFI London Film Festival held at the Soho Hotel on Wednesday (October 14) in London, England.

The 46-year-old actress and Rooney, 30, premiered the film later that day.

Cate made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live!, where she was asked to play “Shag Marry Kill” with her Lord of the Rings co-stars!

She ended up marrying her co-star Elijah Wood, shag Viggo Mortensen and kill Orlando Bloom.

“It’s not that I want to kill Orlando,” Cate said. LOL!

FYI: Cate is wearing head-to-toe Givenchy at the photo call. She’s wearing an Esteban Cortazar gown and Guiseppe Zanotti shoes at the premiere. Rooney is wearing Alexander McQueen at the premiere and Giambattista Valli with Nicholas Kirkwood shoes at the photo call. More Here! »

Cate Blanchett Might Compete Against Herself at the Oscars

Cate Blanchett walks the red carpet while attending the New York Film Festival premiere of her new movie Carol on Friday night (October 9) in New York City.

The 46-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-star Rooney Mara.

The night before, Cate stepped out in two looks while making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Cate is getting major Oscar buzz for two movies this year – Carol and Truth. The problem is that she is the leading actress in both and the studios behind the films reportedly don’t want to move her down into the supporting actress category so she will be eligible for both. The Academy only lets talent be nominated once in each category each year, so there’s a chance Cate could split the votes and be snubbed altogether if she doesn’t get enough votes for one of the roles. This will surely make for an interesting awards season!

FYI: Cate is wearing an Aouadi Paris dress and Lorraine Schwartz earrings at the premiere. She is wearing a Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane suit at Letterman.
