Mara told EW the 2010 remake was a role she didn't really want. "And then I went in [to audition] and I was like, "F**k, I definitely got that," she says.
Later in the interview, she details what happened after the film.
"I didn't want to act anymore. I was like, This isn't what I signed up for. If this is what my opportunities are going to be like, then I'm not that interested in acting. So I was very discouraged and disheartened. And then I got the Social Network script. That kind of inspired me."
