Fierce Dragon Lady

Unforgettable actress Rooney Mara poses beautifully in a new editorial for Vogue magazine. As the lead in the highly anticipated movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, she plays Lisbeth Salander, a character very unlike the one portrayed in this Vogue editorial. Though she plays an outcast in the movie, she portrayed an incredibly fierce girl for photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The November issue features an in-depth look into the movie star's world now that she's been handed this coveted role.

What does she think about all of this? “I am very slow to warm,” Mara told Vogue. “I've always been sort of a loner. I didn't play team sports. I am better one-on-one than in big groups.” This is how she is able to get into character so well. “I can understand wanting to be invisible and mistrusting people and wanting to understand everything before you engage with the world.”
