Rooney Mara Covers 'Vogue' November 2011

Rooney Mara graces the cover of Vogue‘s November 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (October 25).

Here’s what the 26-year-old Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actress had to share:

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.”

    Somehow, this seems unnecessary. I prefer the original movie.

    I love her! She’s amazing!

  • Royalty

    Her family is football royalty. On her father’s side the NY Giants and on her mother’s side the Pittsburgh Steelers. I don’t mean players. Her family are the OWNERS.

    It is very nice to see new, fresh-faced and talented actresses on the cover of such high profile magazines. This cover also looks good. Sometimes it really gets annoying to see the same actresses every year in different styles. I hope they will continue this tendency putting young and talented people.

    Another starlet Hollyweird is pushing down our throats. Go away.

    she’s a weirdo

  • Creed

    I love how beautiful she is on the cover, but it is annoying me because Noomi said she did the exact same thing while SHE played Lisbeth.
    Honestly, look at the pictures of her on google, she is obviosly a girly girl and it will actually be good if she shows how different she is in real life than she is in movies.
    She doesnt need to copy what Noomi said in orderfor us to believe she is a good actress, I mean, I doubt Kiera Knightly rolls out of bed and wears Ball Gowns because she was in a Period Piece.

  • betsy

    this cover is stunning!

  • Kiss

    It is bothering me how she is NOT modest. She is already comparing herself to Scarlett O’Hara and saying how big of a star David Fincher said she was going to be.
    Honestly, America doesnt care so much about good movies, I wish I was wrong but only a small percentage of people will go see this because they will be more interested in the Adam Sandlar movie. This movie is not even Going OverSeas because it has absolutley NO Demand. A Movie star is made over a period of different roles, not a single trilogy.

  • Lilly

    She is changing herself too much OUTSIDE of the movie. That tactic never works, people will only be able to see her as Lisbeth and not Rooney if she does this for the next 5 years.

    @Creed: Perhaps she doesn’t know what Noomi Rapace did or didn’t do. Perhaps she was just answering the interviewer’s questions.

    @Kiss: You misunderstood. She was quoting Fincher and his point was she will be known as Lisbeth the way Vivien Leigh was known as Scarlett. He also compared her to Ginger from Gilligan’s Island. Not exactly “you’re going to be a big star.” Understand?

  • janiece

    @Kiss: I probably wont see this because I thought the original was amazing and I think it’s ridiculous that Hollywood felt the need to remake it so soon after the original was released.

  • andr

    @Y: a great weirdo.

  • b

    She is absolutely gorgeous! I can’t wait to see her interpretation of Lisbeth.

  • Kate

    @ExpletiveBMP: you come off as very insecure. try not to bring other people down just cuz u dont believe in yourself.

  • Lilod

    Perfect is Perfect.
