On the 'Dragon' Set
Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig film 'Tattoo.'
Even someone as tough as Lisbeth Salander needs a break here and there. Well, in this case, the girl playing Lisbeth — actress Rooney Mara.

Mara, the little-known Social Network actress who landed one of the most coveted roles in Hollywood by snagging the lead in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo remake, was seen out and about in Sweden in full Lisbeth regalia. Sporting an eyebrow-ring (which she got pierced specifically for the movies), a Stooges tee, choppy short black hair and a military-style jacket, Mara’s morphed herself into the ultimate butt-kicking hacker recluse.

The movie, which also co-stars Daniel Craig, is currently filming in Sweden and has no release date yet. It’s based on the massively popular and successful book series by Stieg Larssen.

Mara burst onto the scene in 2010 thanks to her small but effective role in The Social Network, where she played Mark Zuckerberg’s short-lived girlfriend. Watch the famous bar scene from the film below:
