One magazine's trash, is another magazine's treasure and that's exactly what happened with W's February issue.
Back in December executives of The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo were talking with Vanity Fair about doing a cover shoot with the film's star Rooney Mara.
The catch: they'd have to use Jean-Baptiste Mondino as the photographer.
A rep at VF explained:
"[Producer] Scott Rudin wanted to use their own set photographer, Mondino, to take the shots. We like Mondino’s work, but said no way — that we would only use our own photographer. So they went with W."
And this is what they ended up with, Rooney styled as her character Lisbeth Salander.
There's also a report that Vanity Fair snubbed Rooney a second time by putting the movie's original star Noomi Rapace on their Young Hollywood issue that's out in March.
