The Lisbeth of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' opens up about having the hardest time when filming the subway fight scene and shares that she is looking forward to working with Terrence Malick next.

Rooney Mara recently opened up that it wasn't easy to play Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)". To Entertaiment Weekly, the New York-born actress revealed that she had the hardest time when filming a scene where she has to fight a guy who steals her computer at a subway.

The younger sister of actress Kate Mara said that she has to spend three grueling days doing nothing but running and fighting, but in the end the subway scene only appears in a flash. "I've seen that scene because I had to do ADR [additional dialogue recording] for it, and it's like, f***, that's three days worth of work? That scene was not like that when I shot it," she said.

"It's hard to see [a film when it's finished], because you want to have your own memory and experience of it, and when the movie's finished it's never the same," she went on to say. "It's really scary to see yourself. I'm really hard on myself. You always look back and wish you'd done things differently. You see every little thing that other people don't notice. It's just a very weird experience."

During the chat, Rooney also weighed in on the harrowing rape scene between Lisbeth and her guardian/probation officer. "It's not that I'm tired of talking about them, but people really need to up their game with the question. Everyone is like, 'So, the rape scene. Was that hard?' You're just like, 'No, it was really fun. It was really titillating'. But I'm not sick of talking about them," she said.

Aside from talking about "Dragon Tattoo", Rooney opened up about her future projects. Revealing that she will work with Ryan Gosling in Terrence Malick's upcoming film "Lawless", the Erica Albright of "The Social Network" said, "That's something I hope to do, but it's unfortunately not until September, so it's a ways away."

Rooney, however, refused to share more details of the upcoming movie. "I can't tell you anything!" she said. "He's [Terrence] one of the great filmmakers out there. After working with David, it's really hard - the bar has been set a sort of an unreachable height."

"I want to work with people who have a vision and who are uncompromising in the way that they make films and Terry is one of those people. He's incredible. He's one of the nicest people I've ever come into contact with. But I'm not going to give away his secrets," she gushed.

"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" has been released in the U.S. on December 20. It follows the mystery surrounding the long-unsolved disappearance of an heiress as a journalist recently dinged by a libel case and a young female hacker team up to resolve it, stirring up bundles of personal and industrial corruption along the way.
