SheWired�s Shot of The Day: Rooney Mara Toughs it Out as Lisbeth Salander on 'W'

There is a moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being nothing lesbian about it and often there being no redeeming value. Well, we at SheWired have made an executive decision to just throw any of our pseudo-feminist caution to the wind and to just post our fave shot of the day, whether it be sexy, salacious, or just because... Today’s shot is sure to leave literary lesbos extra excited as it's the very sexy Rooney Mara on W’s cover as hacker heroine/Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Lisbeth Salander.

There is a moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being nothing lesbian about it and often there being no redeeming value. Well, we at SheWired have made an executive decision to just throw any of our pseudo-feminist caution to the wind and to just post our fave shot of the day, whether it be sexy, salacious, or just because...

Today’s shot is sure to leave literary ladies extra excited as it's the very sexy Rooney Mara on W’s cover as bisexual and hacker heroine/Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Lisbeth Salander.

For the cover shot, obsessive director David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network) shouted, “"I think we need more blood. Lisbeth Salander is not about suffering! She is not Jesus! She is about vengeance!" Rooney rocks a cropped, black hairdo, facial piercings, and a huge chest tat sporting her surname (and nothing else) under a Burberry Prorsum’s leather jacket. And it is hot, Hot, HOT.

"Before I read the book, I didn't think I could do it," Mara said, who reveals a little skin in this shot of Lisbeth getting some extra ink. "I locked myself in a room for a week and read all three books, and decided I really wanted to be Lisbeth. But I thought I had no shot at it."

Check out the fascinating full interview with Fincher and Mara in W now.
