Rooney Mara, aka Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, covers the latest issue of Vogue. "I have really enjoyed being a boy this last year,” she says of how the character has changed her dressing habits. Fincher tells Vogue she's "a great weirdo."
Vogue writer Jonathan Van Meter says of interviewing the two together:
As Fincher talks about the film, his heroine, Mara—with Salander’s awesomely strange hair, bleached eyebrows, and facial piercings—sits next to him, looking for all the world like a troubled college student who takes too much Adderall. She hangs on his every word, her eyes lit with admiration. Their relationship, it quickly becomes clear, is charged with the electric current of the mentor-protégée crush, which is both touching and occasionally uncomfortable to watch. Or, as Daniel Craig, who costars as a crusading journalist named Mikael Blomkvist, says about their working relationship, “It’s fucking weird!”
