Authentic look of Girl with The Dragon Tattoo
I was apprehensive about the Hollywood version of the Swedish film, "Girl with a Dragon Tattoo". It may yet prove to have been a justified fear, but the girl who plays Lisbeth looks just right and has gone to extraordinary lengths to make sure that is so. She has had many piercings and a drastic haircut, all of which she has maintained long after filming has been completed. Rooney Mara, see above, is not an actress with whom I'm familiar but having seen the trailers she has completely transformed herself into a tattooed and pierced Swedish Goth. I am convinced by her.
It may be that she has done all this to make sure she is again cast in the sequels that will follow if the film is a success. But she's gone so far it's hard not to imagine that she is living out a persona with whom she is completely at one, in terms of appearance.
