Rooney Mara Does 'Vogue'

Here's a sneak peek of 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' actress, Rooney Mara on the cover of Vogue's November 2011 issue:


And here are some highlights from inside the mag:

On the day she got the part of Lisbeth: “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: “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.”



On being a bit like Lisbeth herself: “I am very slow to warm. I’ve always been sort of a loner. I didn’t play team sports. I am better one-on-one than in big groups. I can understand wanting to be invisible and mistrusting people and wanting to understand everything before you engage with the world."
