rooney mara talks getting all pierced up for dragon tattoo role

Wowsa! She really went ALL OUT for this role!

During a recent interview, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara opened up about getting piercings for her role as Lisbeth Salander.

Here's what she had to say about her decision to get nipple piercings:

"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 [piercing] to get — a necessary one to get."

And here's Rooney on getting her ears pierced:

"I didn’t even have pierced ears. They put four holes in each ear, and, weirdly, that hurt the most. It was all very organized. With David, everything is measured and carefully considered. He wants what he sees in his head."

Rooney ALSO go her lip, brow, and nose pierced for the film! That's dedication!

Hope it pays off, Ms. Mara! We think it will!

    We know, this has been all over the media a few days ago. That away to stay on top of things.

    First off, Mara is her last name, so calling her "Mara!" sounds stupid as fuck. Also, this was out a few days ago, and also last year when she did it for the movie. She also got her nipples pierced, which i can't believe you didn't mention. Anyway, i'm just waiting for you to do a post on how she was a starving artist struggling to get by, even though she is the great grand daughter of the owner of the pittsburg steelers and the grand daughter of the owner of the new york giants. And damn she was cute before she got this role.

    Re: hoochpit – Grammar standards for journalism state that the first mention of a person in an article you are to call them by first and last name. Then, after the first mention, the person is to be called by their LAST name. So in this case, as hard as it may be to believe, Perez is actually correct!

    wrong. again. nose and lip are fake.



  5. 5

    Actually, a new magazine article just came out (I believe it was People) that says her lip and nose piercing are fake, but the others are real.



  6. 6

    She's a copycat. Noomi Rapace had them too for her Swedish version of the same movie, which came out earlier and was MUCH better! The American version won't be able to duplicate the darkness of the Swedish version. EVER!

    Whooooo cares? They're piercings.. they can be taken out and healed up.. not like she got full sleeves tattooed on her or something.
    If getting piercings is news worthy, I should have my own article on here too then. Moron.
