Rooney Mara for Vogue Magazine November 2011

Rooney Mara, the star of the upcoming movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - David Fincher's highly anticipated adaptation of the award-winning crime novel - covers the November 2011 issue of Vogue. Scroll down for more.

On the day she got the part: “I was ready to throw down. I was thinking, You either think I can be this girl or you don’t, but I need to move on with my life. He sat me down and gave me this long spiel about all the bad things that are going to come to whoever plays this part. He said something like, ‘Vivien Leigh was incredible in A Streetcar Named Desire, but she will always be Scarlett O’Hara, and you need to be prepared for that.’”

On how she’s changed since taking on the role of Lisbeth: “Before, I dressed much girlier. A lot of blush-colored things. Now I literally roll out of bed and put on whatever is there. I have really enjoyed being a boy this last year.”

On being a bit like Lisbeth herself: “I am very slow to warm. I’ve always been sort of a loner. I didn’t play team sports. I am better one-on-one than in big groups. I can understand wanting to be invisible and mistrusting people and wanting to understand everything before you engage with the world.”

"There were all these versions of Lisbeth Salander, but the one that had the most layers was Rooney's," says director David Fincher.
