Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander – The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011)
“Everybody has secrets, the trick is just finding out what they are.”
The secrets to Rooney Mara’s first leading role was shaving her head, dying her hair black, had her nose, eyebrow, and lip pierced and working out non-stop.
In the film, she plays Goth turned hacker Lisbeth Salander, a far cry from her usual appearance and roles. In an interview, she was reported as ordering a fish dinner and barely eating any of it to prepare for the role.
