Noomi Rapace 'considered boob job'

Noomi Rapace is considering putting in "fake t*ts" for a movie role.

The Swedish actress transformed to play Lisbeth Salander in the original film version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She stayed in character for long periods of time and had piercings and cut her hair to ensure she was believable as the biker computer hacker.

Noomi has begun to think of how far she will push herself in the future.

"I'm struggling with that now. I'm doing this movie later on, where I'm supposed to be blonde and blue-eyed with pretty big boobies. I was thinking about putting in fake t*ts - because so many actresses do it, although not for a specific role," she mused to British newspaper The Telegraph. "I went to a clinic and met a doctor, and did a lot of research. But it's a big procedure, it's quite painful, and then I'd need to take them out again for the part I'm doing afterwards. So although I'm not afraid of pushing it, I don't want to do surgery. Probably."

Noomi, 32, went to a Rudolf Steiner school as a child because she was "too wild" for a regular one. She was allowed more freedom there which she loved, but as she got older she wanted more.

When she was 15 she left home to study in Stockholm and she can vividly recall realising she needed to start working harder.

"It wasn't like I ran off. My stepdad took me to Stockholm with my stuff, a seven-hour drive from the south of Sweden. I rented a room, and I became a grown-up. I realised that I needed to become the person I wanted to be, that nobody else was going to do it for me," she said. "That's when I realised that I was a bit almost like a r****d, because everyone else at school knew things, and I had no idea. I'd never been on a computer. My spelling was horrible. So while everyone else was partying I was completely sober and studying."
