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.”

    againsthollywood Says:

    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 Says:

    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?

    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.

    guinness Says:

    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.

    sb Says:

    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.

    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 ****** 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.

    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”

    thx FIO- and if it aint TC then it is damn close. He has the same something…stature or something. ho hum.

    and thx for the wonderful pics. He is posing for a picture while smoking? Albeit, he is hot whenever he moves, but come on–seriously, “here get this, with me smoking. I can even make smoking HOT”. and the chained hands. oui! oiy! wow. He makes me type in diff languages. I wonder how many new pics he put out in the past year or so. millions?

    Someone ask if he saw his “Hugh-Huge-ness” in the theater yet? He had a front page in the NYT that he was doing well in his new role–as an entertainer, not as a serious cop guy with Dan Craig. wow. that was miss-cast. there, i said it. blah. Dan was phenomenal, and they would have gottten a tony if it wasn’t for Song and Dance Man. there. i said it again. i am evvvil but if i were a NYC fan without anything else to do, i would sit outside there (or buy 100 tix) just to see if Dan shows up at his show. What you doing for the holiday season Mendel? save enough to visit Dan at NYC? in fact, survive the weekend? not in jail from any occupy walll street occupifications? i was thinking about laying down and having Daniel occupy me. he looks delish.

    so is he under the invisiblitily cloak again? with the Potter glasses on?

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

    “And he doesn’t shave…”

    Can’t keep my eyes from that belt area – nearly running out of cold water…

    Thanks for all those wonderful pics! Dan’s definitely smokin’ hot!!! And those chains…my imagination is running away with me!

    “They called the man Tim Craig, and I don’t know why they put such a caption”

    They must have thought this man was Tim Craig, but Tim doesn’t have such a longish face. Also this guy doesn’t resemble Dan, and you can certainly see a likeness between Tim and Dan.

    “Gee, maybe her waist is the same size as my thigh!! lol”

    LOL! That waist is unreal…

    Hi Guinness

    “He makes me type in diff languages.”

    Yes, I’ve stopped making sense and started to speak in tongues…

    Hahahaha, I’d love to have Dan occupy me, too!!!
    Those tweets Amy and Fio posted say Dan is still in London – so he’s still on my turf, not yours… *grin*
    So you can keep the Song and Dance man, while we have Dan!

    Sir Roger Moore ‘would have been dead’ from playing James Bond like Daniel Craig
    http://blog.zap2it.com/pop2it/2011/11/sir-roger-moore-would-have-been-dead-from-playing-james-bond-like-daniel-craig.html
    (QUOTE)
    Sir Roger Moore not only maintained the role over 12 years and seven movies, he says he remains as big a James Bond fan as anyone.

    “I think Daniel Craig is a wonderful actor,” the British star also well-known as television’s original “Saint” tells Zap2it from his home in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. “When I read that he was going to do it right at the beginning, I thought, ‘This is going to be interesting.’ I had just seen him in [the Steven Spielberg-directed drama] ‘Munich’ and a couple of films before that, and I thought ‘Casino Royale’ was absolutely superb.

    “He’s a beautiful actor and a nice guy,” Moore adds, “and his gymnastics are quite extraordinary. I would have been dead after the first movie.” Craig returns as Bond next November in “Skyfall,” four years after “Quantum of Solace,” and the delay between 007 capers hasn’t surprised Moore: “It was purely because of the [financial] upset with MGM and the rights.”

    Fio Says:

    It’s nothing new, but it means the article of C&A in EW (July issue) was crap!! Daniel mentioned Connery in EW, and that was just a joke.

    DANIEL CRAIG PRAISES CONNERY’S 007
    http://www.express.co.uk/features/view/283704/Daniel-Craig-praises-connery-s-007

    DANIEL Craig has been speaking about his role as the most famous spy in film history and, in contrast to SIR Roger Moore, says SIR Sean Connery, was the perfect James Bond in 1962.
    Ignoring the fuss caused when Moore claimed he couldn’t understand what Connery was saying as 007, Craig, 43, thinks it was the Scottish actor who started the world’s love affair with Bond.

    “He set up something that was genuine,” says Craig . “The films are embedded in people’s memories. They always had some ability to entertain.”

    With a £145million budget for the latest 007 outing Skyfall, we expect a lot of entertaining…

    To Fio

    thanks for the article on Roger Moore. i watched all the films with him on DVD and i could not see him as James Bond. i know others here will disagree with me but that’s how i feel. i did not believe Moore as Bond.

    Fio Says:

    Gee, I hate the ‘tabloidish’ title…
    Sir Roger never rubbished Connery’s diction, it was also just a joke. And Daniel knows it well!!

    Daniel Craig fights back over Roger Moore dig
    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/3936850/Daniel-Craig-fights-back-over-Roger-Moore-dig.html
    DANIEL Craig has had a sly dig at Roger Moore over his recent comments about him and original 007 Sean Connery.
    Longest-running James Bond Moore, who appeared in seven movies, slammed the last movie, 2008′s Quantum of Solace, which starred Craig, as a “long disjointed commercial”.

    And he also rubbished Connery’s diction, adding: “Sean is a good actor, it’s a pity I can’t understand what he’s saying.”

    Moore made the comments to students at the Cambridge Union Society recently and now Craig has subtly hit back.

    Craig, 43, is reprising his role as the secret agent for the 22nd Bond movie Skyfall.

    And he praised Connery, original producers Harry Saltzman and Albert Broccoli, and Broccoli’s children Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson — who produce the current crop of movies.

    He said: “I think Saltzman and Broccoli when they kick-started these movies, cast Sean Connery, spent the money they did, took the books, which are great stories, it’s a huge amount of impetus.

    “Sean Connery had a lot to do with that. He set up something that was just genuine. They are embedded in people’s memories.

    “They always made them event movies. They made them about a family experience. They made them about going to the movies as a child — I remember my first Bond movie.

    “And they’ve continued to put the money on the screen.

    “And whatever’s happened — however good or bad they may be in the past — they always put the money up there and they always had some ability to entertain.

    “Barbara and Michael are total lovers of this franchise, they protect it fiercely and do exactly the same thing that their father did.”

    Fio Says:

    Hi, susan
    I think Sir Roger was very charming as Bond. His Bond was elegant and refined, but the odd gadget and setting in story sometimes made his Bond era a comedy. BTW I’m glad Sir Roger is still proud of Bond. IMO the former Bond actors didn’t love Bond as much as Sir Roger loves Bond.

    “He’s a beautiful actor and a nice guy,” Moore adds, “and his gymnastics are quite extraordinary.”

    Wouldn’t mind seeing more of his ‘gymnastics’… *grin*

    “I think Sir Roger was very charming as Bond”

    Yes, I agree. Of course, he wasn’t quite the ‘book’ Bond, but more a Bond of his era (the 70s and early 80s) – where the shirts were loud, the parties extravagant, and everything was over the top. I’d say he had a lot of fun making the films, and people enjoyed watching him.

    And I just found this article on Dragon Tattoo:

    http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/11/15/david-fincher-dragon-tattoo-tv-spot/

    It shows how much Fincher paid attention to detail in the film.

    Agh, sorry my *beep* duble post!!
    Hi, Mendel
    Thanks for the article. I love the scene and the lines. Lisbeth knows his everything in her research, but Mikael, her subject of unfailing interest, burst into her house. Suddenly, she run into trouble. Their positions have been reversed, so she gets upset. I’m curious to see their odd relationship, and their wordplay. And I’m curious as to how she says to Daniel “I like having sex with you”. *sigh*

    i was in a bad mood-loathe mean people who are just mean-they are never nice. and they dont think they are mean, they think they are riteous. and I know they are a Tory.

    anyhoo, the clip i posted and yours fio & mendel, made me into a better mood. i could be living in northern sweden!! although where i am now is a little new england noir! he got himself out of that statement quite well–just a little wiggle and I really didn’t care how he answered the question.

    I too, my friend, would love to “speak in tongues” with Dan. And, damn, the Huge song and Dance man is just loving himself too much i am afraid he will NEVER leave. plse, red rover, red rover, please send Dan back over the pond!! damn.

    ah, how many times did you watch the clip for you to notice rooney getting to put her lips on Dan’s “soldiers”? i would not have guessed that. i can NOT wait for this–it is such a great movie already. and that led Z song i want to crank in my car for my ride home cuz i am ready to shout as loud as i can today. aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    do you have an “england noir” where you are mendel? that is so funny–and i love how he tried to wiggle out the answer to the reporter who didnt give two rats azzes what he was ssaying, just that he got the interview. wat dinks. i hate interviews. isuck at interviews. who wants to tallk about yourself? and he just wiggles. that is what i can do. or just to make me feel better. do the Dan Wiggle. do the Dan Wiggle. wow. what he is really wiggllllling down there……………(your welcome cheeky brit)

    to Fio

    thanks, great interview :)

    “Rooney bites Daniel’s ni**les in this video clip… AWESOME :)”

    Where am I? Who am I? My mind just blipped!

    “I’m curious to see their odd relationship, and their wordplay. And I’m curious as to how she says to Daniel “I like having sex with you”. *sigh*”

    Yes…yes, yes, yes *grin*

    “i was in a bad mood-loathe mean people who are just mean-they are never nice. and they dont think they are mean, they think they are riteous. and I know they are a Tory.”

    Definitely Tories :)

    “plse, red rover, red rover, please send Dan back over the pond!! damn. ”

    No, no, no! Dr No! No!

    “do you have an “england noir” where you are mendel?”

    All England is noir at the moment…seen our unemployment figures released today?

    “do the Dan Wiggle. do the Dan Wiggle. wow. what he is really wiggllllling down there”

    LOL! That wiggling nearly knocked me out… ;)

    Thank you for the link, Guinness! They abandoned plans to film at a Scots castle? To be frank, I am a little disappointed. It must be fantastic!

    GUINNESS Says:

    like they cant get into another castle-right Elle-its a great idea, maybe they will “find” another. so many “scenes” cancelled because of the state the countries are in these days, or there are always rumors for this type of filming,Bond movies, so as to throw off any “mass-mobs” forming at the site? they gots to create hype!! new york seems the best place, oh-wait, nope–too many occ-u-protests!! Maybe BOSTON? yea–i would sooooo be there! ah, he could be meeting a spy at the Boston Aquarium for a drop! ie. the latest plans on getting “m” to change her name to “Z” cuz its much cooler.

    so, I am just trying to get him to do some Bondage over here. yes, that was really stupid idea. wait!
    “Free Bond filming at Guinnesses yard!!-we could have a camp fire, light some fireworks, shoot some Bond guns, oh crap. i wrote shooting his guns off…cant think nor wirte anymroe. yee hwa!

    vacations next week!!! traveling. blah! Dan should be going over the pond!!! fio? you and mendel? wat up peeeps?
    …and when i used to smoke, we called this the “french kiss’ of smoking. (yea, cigs-cheeky brit, i think jj would bleep what you guys call them…so nasty you brits should really re-think some of your diction!! :), jab jab, duck. jab jab duck jab jab——thud
