When I heard that Rooney Mara was to play Lisbeth Salander, the charming bad-ass from Steig Larsson’s best selling book The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I was confused. Had the casting director read the books or seen the Swedish films? Lisbeth Salander is hardcore. Whereas Rooney Mara is most well-known for being from a football dynasty where her dad owned the Giants and her mom owned the Steelers, as well as playing the cute girl who broke up with Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network. All-American, fresh-faced and sweet are what comes to mind when you think of her. However, these pictures from W Magazine show the epic hollywood makeover made to turn her from Wasp into a punk hottie. I’m always a fan of a good makeover and this one is awesome. Here’s to hoping they don’t destroy the movie.
