When Actresses Go Gritty and Kick Some Serious Butt (PHOTOS)


Hollywood's leading ladies have often ditched their couture gowns and heels in order to put on their butt-kicking shoes for movie roles. However, when it comes to what Rooney Mara is doing in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, she's leaving everyone in the dust when it comes to ambition.

For Tattoo, which opens December 21, Mara went all out: Cutting her glorious locks, getting all sorts of piercings in all manners of areas on her body (including some we definitely can't show photos of) and more to undergo her dark, edgy transition into Lisbeth Salander. For anyone not familiar with the best-selling book series' (or the film's) storyline, it's a thriller as creepy as Silence of the Lambs -- and with David Fincher at the helm, it's bound to be a work of cinematic art.

So, to celebrate Rooney's incredible transformation from young Hollywood beauty into a motorcycle-riding, murder-solving force, Celebuzz put together a gallery of some recent actresses who have left their glamour at the door and checked into tough town.

    The original trilogy is epic, I can't imagine the remake to be as good as the original... Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander ftw
