Daniel Craig & Rooney Mara Cover 'EW'

Daniel Craig & Rooney Mara Cover 'EW'

Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara take the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, on newsstands Friday (November 11).

Here’s what the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo stars had to share with the mag:

Rooney, on initially being told she wasn’t right for the part: “They said they didn’t want to see me. I was like, ‘Okay, that makes sense. I don’t think I’m necessarily right for it either.’ And then I saw the girls who were potentially up for the part all over the Internet and I thought, ‘Well, if these girls are going in, I should get a chance. They’re not necessarily any more right for it than I am.’”

Director David Fincher, on handling the intense scenes in the story: “I couldn’t be happier. We didn’t want to whitewash it. We intend to earn our R [rating]. If you’ve read the book, you know what I’m talking about.”

    Daniel looks great. Is that girl Rooney? I’m afraid I’ve got a wrong girl..

  • From Paris with Love

    I’d unbuckle that belt with my teeth xD

  • Al

    R-rating is good. ALWAYS GOOD!

  • mel

    was all that photoshop necessary? they look like video games characters

  • Tom

    Can’t wait to see that!! I hope the film captured all the pathos of their situation.

  • Elle

    I can’t see the image is photoshopped. As far as I know it, Daniel is ‘the Daniel’ as usual.

  • Truth

    This is gonna flop so hard.

  • jiji

    Daniel looks f-king HOT!!!! Why did she lose her eyebrows?

  • anonymous

    @jiji: Bleached, not shaved off.

  • againsthollywood

    Has Entertainment Weekly and the photographer even read the books, seen the original before coming up with this stupidness?! Rooney Mara’s portraying a character that would never in a million years be wrapped around a man like that. This is so beyond the opposite of what the books and movies are about and yet here they are, putting the female in her place… again.

    This is nothing but a prime example of Hollywood pretty much ruining everything.

  • Wait

    Just wait till you see the film. It will be much closer to the book then the other version, I am sure of that. They are partners, friends and lovers – so why would she not? Also, this is a cover – what do you expect her to do – spit at him?

  • jiji

    Oh, thank you anon! Her transformation is very interesting.

  • Tisham

    daniel is a good looking man…:)

    @againsthollywood

    calm down! it’s only a photo shoot; you do understand the concept? this photo and any others have very little to do with the film.

  • Brandon

    In other words they will do an exploitive rape scene that we don’t need to see. I wish people would stop acting like you have to see a rape to understand, have those pro-rape pages on facebook taught those idiots how terrible it is, no, they love seeing it.

  • to Wait

    spit at him?
    ————————————————
    LOL
    ”againsthollywood” will be satisfied if Ronney gives Daniel a piggyback.

  • to 16

    Swedish version had a rape scene, too. I think Noomi’s performance was awesome. I was able to understand why she retaliated.

  • Mako Morton

    His light blue shirt is very becoming on Daniel. It makes him look so stunning!!

  • brenda dubois

    The cover is so terrible though! They’re both photoshopped to death.

  • guinness

    Hey! Almost good banter peoples!!
    I “almost” agree with some of these. The pic does misconstrue what some people perceive Lizbeth to be, But if you really want to see her strong-watch the movie, and the explicit rape scenes. They have to make money-that picture WILL get people to see the movie. And the pic has to be photoshopped-agreed they look like animotrons-but maybe they really arent in the same studio, maybe he is with ME, posing for ME, that is an incredible, unseen stance for him to accentuate his positives. And he doesn’t shave-at least he hadn”t shaved there yet for Bond. I work with youngins-and they say that is the norm these days-full body shave(I know they have fancy words to call the process, but damnn-if ya cant say it, how can you do it?) anyhoww–the photographers are quite talented for all these PR shots. nice. “ok, now Dan, throw the other hip out and open up that shirt a little more, yeah. then turn and kick. ok. ah, how bout giving me your belt, we dont need that in this shot, and ah, Rooney, why dont’ you take a break… And Dan, yes, are you wearing socks? yeah, we dont’ need them. I mean, we dont need them in this shot…”

    nand i would think dan would be a no-sock, commando type person. and sleeper…to continue the intellectual conversation on socks Mendel.

  • Sara

    I couldn’t recognize that that girl was Rooney Mara at first. However, I see that man is Daniel Craig obviously. Who is it if the man is not Craig? xD

  • sb

    not sure maybe the movie will be good, and I know this is only a promo pic, but I agree with the comment saying that Salander would never wrap around a man like that, including her lover. Ever.

    He is like the self centered, self confident macho with a girl wrapped around. If it wasn’t for the clothing this would fit more the Bond character!

    For this movie, a pic of a very self confident Salander with a submissive man would be a lot closer to the the story.

  • guinness

    “youngins”— people in their 20′s
    yuck, cant believe i am Dan’s age and saying that! boo hoo! “youngins”— people in their 20′s
    yuck, cant believe i am Dan’s age and saying that! boo hoo!
    “you must watch the rape scenes” because of what “we” have said rationally–because then you can “justify” what she does for “vindication”. and “we” never stated that Lis aint borderline sadist from what she was “taught” love was. so, this will bring up all kinds of wonderful intellectual psychological banter. And this is why I dont’ believe Lisbeth can ever be a real person–she is just too many persons wrapped up. They would somehow contradict each other making her more self distructive OR catatonic in real life. (some dr’s would fight to have her as a patient, let alone get lost in “the health care system, they would make money off her.) sorry, thats the facts JACK!. you make it here Mendel? i am thinking i can make my own caption for this pic! so exciting.

  • To brenda dubois

    You are so funny.
    You pick your name up from a woman author on Google, ALWAYS.

  • Eva

    Eva Gabrielsson, Stieg Larsson’s partner, was unhappy about the original film because Mikael Blomkvist was portrayed as a weak man. She said that she expect Fincher to do his best.

    Oh dear, don’t overreact to the photo – just a cover, not a poster.

  • Brandon

    @From Paris with Love: The guy is about 100 years old.

  • JS

    Tintin will be the Holiday Movie Hit. When is that getting a cover?

  • Guest

    Can’t wait to see this!

  • to 32

    Swedish version was cheesy, good thing was only Noomi Rapace.

  • to Juleanden

    You should know the fact. Scott Rudin, the producer of TGWTDT, acquired the rights before the Swedish version was filming. They decided to filmize the trilogy in Hollywood regardless of whether a movie was made in Sweden. The justice that you think about must be “First come, first served”

    In the first teaser poster, nudity, Daniel held Rooney in his arms from behind. As for the EW cover, Rooney holds Daniel in her arms from behind. Then they’re even now, right? :)
