We’ve bestowed our Girl Crush honor upon a number of butt-kicking actresses, including Lily Collins, Teresa Palmer and Nina Dobrev, but none have undergone a transformation quite as complete as Rooney Mara did in order to portray hacker-punk Lisbeth Salander in the big-screen adaptation of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” (Chica pierced her NIPPLE for Ikea’s sake!) So, in honor of her intense dedication to the role and the film’s opening tomorrow, we’ve named the star this week’s Girl Crush.
In exchange for the title, we asked Rooney to divulge her own Girl Crush. “Lykke Li,” she said, citing the 25-year-old musician whose “Possibility” appeared on the “New Moon” soundtrack. “I just saw her live for the first time a few weeks ago, and I’ve had a Girl Crush on her ever since.”
Seems a fitting selection for Rooney considering Lykke and Lisbeth share Swedish roots. Perhaps with a little prodding on Rooney’s part, we could see Lykke on “The Girl Who Played With Fire” soundtrack?
What say you, Crushers? Do you have a Girl Crush on Rooney? Will you be seeing “Dragon Tattoo” this week?
