Fincher: Mara can look like Hepburn

Rooney Mara had to be transformed for her role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

David Fincher has opened up about the challenges of physically transforming his The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo leading lady Rooney Mara into Lisbeth Salander.

The director explained to Entertainment Weekly that every part of her costume and make-up was carefully thought out.

"Rooney's a beautiful girl," he said. "She can look like Audrey Hepburn, but she can also look like a boy.

"So we'd decide where we wanted to put the stud through her eyebrow by asking, 'where is it going to be most in the way? Where is the most distracting place?'."

He added: "We had to be really sure that the nipple piercing was in the place where it was going to catch the light."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
