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.”

    I’m sure she’ll do a great job and get the Oscar nomm. that really should have been given to Noomi.

    She won’t get a nomination, and nothing Noomi did in the Swedish movie deserved one either.

    Yeah and she also gets a boob job in the books, are you going to do that too?

    I find her fascinating and strange. It’s awesome, this move looks awesome too. David Fincher just doesn’t choose anyone for a role, so he must have thought she was the new Lisbeth.

    I think she tries too hard. Everyone wants to be “the oddball” now-a-days. You can’t tell who is sincere and not.

    @Jess: The part was originally offered to Noomi, but she didn’t want it.

    maybe, maybe she could have a Fake piercing, but she choose been more close to the character, that is what a real actor do. so yeah she look horrible in the film, but if I’m honest that is how I imagine Lisbeth in the books
