Rooney Mara in Louis Vuitton: Love it or Hate it?

Rooney Mara looked absolutely stunning (in my opinon) at last night’s premiere of ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ premiere in Paris. She’s wearing a Louis Vuitton dress, and it suits her perfectly. Might be one of my favorite dresses she’s worn on this press tour!

As for the movie itself… I saw it (a while ago, I’ve needed to write this up for a while!) and my overall opinion is I really liked it. STOP READING NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT. For the most part – I really liked the movie. I was very skeptical about Rooney playing Lisbeth, in my opinion Noomi Rapace did an amazing job in the Swedish films – and would have been hard to beat. But Rooney really stole the show. She did amazing. Every scene she was in – you were just in awe. She really transformed herself for this role. I thought Daniel Craig did a great job as Mikael, and Stellan Skarsgard was suuuuper creepy as Martin. The movie moved along so well it didn’t feel like it was 2:45, which is pretty good. The brutal rape scene in the Swedish film was almost unbearable, and the US version wasn’t quite as bad (thankfully). However the scene where Lisbeth goes back to her rapist was much more graphic in the US version than it was in the Swedish version. My only real complaint about the movie was the ending. Sex played a much bigger role in David Fincher’s version. In Fincher’s version, he made Lisbeth fall in love with Mikael…which isn’t true to the Swedish film. In all fairness, I didn’t read the book – so I’m not sure how their relationship was intended. In the end of the US movie, Lisbeth goes back to Mikael – with a present she has made for him – but she finds Mikael back in the arms of his ex-girlfriend, Erika. She looks deflated, hurt, embarrassed. So she hops on her motorcycle and takes off. That’s the end of the film. I didn’t care for this. In the Swedish film, Lisbeth and Mikael have sex – but it didn’t have anything to do with love … or feelings she had for him. In the end of the movie – Lisbeth takes off – and sort of leaves Mikael in the dust, which… if you ask me, is much more in tune with her character. Lisbeth was much colder in the Swedish film. In Fincher’s take – Lisbeth had heart, and fell for Mikael. I don’t know… that’s my 2 cents. What did you think?

Daniel Craig, George Clooney and Matt Damon on the cover of Vanity Fair!

Daniel Craig, George Clooney and Matt Damon land the February cover of Vanity Fair, which was shot by Annie Leibovitz. The three actors sat down for Vanity Fair’s Proust Questionnaire, and gave candid answers. I think they make a pretty hot cover, but I second Celebitchy’s sentiment in wanting to see Michael Fassbender or Ryan Gosling on the cover instead.

For the first time ever, Vanity Fair pits three of Hollywood’s most fascinating leading men against one another for that signature illuminating interrogation of ours, the Proust Questionnaire—and the monthly back-page feature proves even more revelatory when offered in triplicate, from George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Daniel Craig.

If George Clooney could choose what to come back as, it would be his dog—as the actor states, “he lives better.” The Descendants lead also admits to being displeased with his posture and considers patience the most overrated virtue.

Daniel Craig values patience in his friends above all, but doesn’t like his knees, and you’ll never guess what he considers his most treasured possession—but then, we can’t really be sure. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star admits that he lies when answering questionnaires.

Matt Damon, who played a widower twice this year, in Contagion and We Bought a Zoo, is focused on family off the camera—he says that he was happiest in bed making his four children and in the hospital watching them being born. He says that his greatest achievement is his marriage, that his real-life heroes are his parents, and that his favorite names are those of his wife and children. He and Clooney both wish they could play instruments, while the more practical Craig only wishes he had opposable toes.

George Clooney:

What do you consider your greatest achievement? Working in the Sudan.

If you could choose what to come back as, what would it be? My dog — he lives better.

Matt Damon:

When and where were you happiest? In our bed, making our children, and in the hospital watching them being born.

What is your motto? “Don’t be a d-bag.”

Daniel Craig:

What is your most marked characteristic? My third nipple.

What is the quality you most like in a man? A good mustache.

What is the quality you most like in a woman? A good mustache.

What is your most treasured possession? Apart from my penis and my health?

Daniel Craig is wanted for 5 more Bond films!

Daniel Craig is about to become the longest running James Bond star, if he accepts the film bosses offer to star in five more movies.

The 43-year-old actor is currently shooting ‘Skyfall’, which is his third Bond film. Producer Michael G. Wilson revealed that he hopes to lock Daniel in for five more films, which would bring his total to one more than Roger Moore’s seven.

Speaking about a potential multi-million pound deal for Daniel, he said: “Daniel’s been a terrific Bond, a superb actor and a terrific man. The fans love him and I don’t think there’s a better actor to play the part.

“It’s certainly something we’ll be discussing with him once we finish shooting ‘Skyfall’. Filming has gone very well so far and I’d love Daniel to surpass Roger’s record and do eight pictures. Daniel’s been an absolute pleasure to be around because he takes the role so seriously. There’s really no one more passionate about making these films than him – he’s a filmmaker’s dream.

“A lot of people have said Daniel’s been their favourite Bond since Sean Connery and I can’t argue with them. He’s doing a great job.”

Michael also revealed the latest film is going back to its roots and fans can expect a ‘Goldfinger’ feel to the movie.

He told People: “The director Sam Mendes and Daniel are taking it back to a 60s feel -more Sean. I think that’s what the fans wanted. There’s a magical ‘Goldfinger’ feel surrounding it all. It’s all very exciting. I can’t wait for people to see the movie because I think we’re making a very special Bond.”

I hope he does sign on to star in five more films. I think Daniel Craig makes the perfect Bond! What do you think?

“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” Premieres in New York

When it came time to play Lisbeth Salander in “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” Rooney Mara was ready to go to more than a few extremes. Namely, she knew she was going to be naked onscreen and as such, that her naked body ought to resemble Lisbeth’s as much as possible. “Nudity is such a huge part of the character in the book, so I never thought twice about it,” she tells Allure. She even got her nipple pierced, because Lisbeth had the same piercing in the original story. “I’m naked quite a lot in the movie, and I thought, she has it in the book, and she should have it [in the movie],” reasons Rooney. “Because of all the tattoos and the makeup and the piercings, and the physical transformations my body has to go through, it would always feel sort of like I was in costume, even if I was naked. It just felt like a good one to get — a necessary one to get.”

I cannot wait for this movie! Almost there!

What do you think of Rooney’s dress? It’s Prabal Gurung Spring 2012.
