Rooney Mara beat out a ton of actresses to get the part of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo she even got a few real piercing to get intoÂ character!
On her sister, the actress Kate Mara:
“We’re so different that there’s never been competitiveness between us in work. She is probably much more likable than I am. She’s really outgoing and fun. I’m definitely more of the odd sister.”
On having her nipple pierced for the role:
“I’m naked quite a lot in the movie, and I thought, she has it in the book, and she should have it [in the movie]. Because of all the tattoos and the makeup and the piercings, and the physical transformations my body has to go through, it would always feel sort of like I was in costume, even if I was naked. It just felt like a good one to get — a necessary one to get.”
