Rooney Mara has revealed she would love to work with Daniel Craig again - but probably not in a James Bond film.

The American actress, who teams up with the British star in David Fincher's Hollywood remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, reckons she wouldn't cut it as a Bond girl.

"I don't know that I'd be a very good Bond girl. I don't know, I've never thought about that before," she said at the film's world premiere in London.

The 26-year-old added: "Of course I enjoyed working with Daniel. He's an incredible actor and very generous. He's very patient and it was very nice to have him there."

Rooney - who plays troubled computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to Daniel's Mikael Blomkvist in the big-screen adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novels - admitted it was tougher to leave the intense role once filming ended.

"It was harder to get out than in. I think it's really hard to come off any experience that you spend that much time and energy on," she said.

Despite that, she's looking forward to a potential second instalment of the Millennium trilogy, The Girl Who Played With Fire.

"I hope we get to make them. I would be very grateful if that would happen," she continued, adding that it's too early to think of the awards buzz.

"I don't think about that," she added.file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/jeanannec/Local%20Settings/Temp/6/fuel_cache/fuel_temp_9049902287875039268.tmp
