W Magazine has posted our first official look at The Social Network actress Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. According to the magazine the actress “had her eyebrows bleached, her hair chopped, and her lip, brow, nose, and nipple pierced—all in one “very intense” day.”

Rooney Mara beat the likes of Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Carey Mulligan, Emily Browning, Ellen Page, and a bunch of other upcoming young actresses to land the role of Lisbeth Salander because she is “smart and capable and works really hard”, is “ridiculously photogenic in a very interesting way” and a “great listener”, according to Fincher.
The actress is currently filming alongside Daniel Craig, Robin Wright and Stellan Skarsgard in the remake which revolves around a young woman named Lisbeth Salander, a brilliant computer hacker who has a photographic memory, and a journalist named Mikael Blomkvist (Craig) who recruits her to find a woman who has been missing for 40 years.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will be released in December.
