Rooney Mara Talks Nipple Piercing with 'Allure'

Rooney Mara Talks Nipple Piercing with 'Allure'

Rooney Mara wears Vera Wang as she graces the cover of Allure magazine’s January 2012 issue.

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

On her sister, actress Kate Mara: “We’re so different that there’s never been a 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 filming The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: “Nudity is such a huge part of the character in the book, so I never thought twice about it. There was no time for hesitation. I didn’t have time to second-guess anything or be scared; I just showed up and was comfortable….People always ask, ‘Were you crying when they cut your hair?’ And it didn’t freak me out at all. I was really happy to do it.”

On getting 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.”
