Rooney Mara is Vogue’s November 2011 cover girl. Photographed by Mara by Mert & Marcus, 26-year-old actress Rooney is looking fierce on mag’s cover wearing a sleeveless black gown with a embroidered dragon on lace back.
She sports dark bowl cut bob, pink lip shade and talks about many things in this issue including her relationship with director David Fincher, her love of “freaking people out,” and how she transformed into the iconic Lisbeth Salandar.
Styled by Tonne Goodman, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star looks striking in mag’s photo spread wearing gowns and dresses from the likes of Calvin Klein, Marchesa and Alexander Wang.
Check out some excerpts from her interview with mag:
On getting 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.”
