She’s meant to look like a little 14-year-old boy. Her look to us was always meant to repel. It’s alway meant to be a means to get the kind of response that I got, people don’t pay attention to you, they don’t have expectations of you, they just ignore you. We certainly didn’t want her to be sexy or attractive in any way. I think by the end of the film she is beautiful. I think a lot of people before they see the movie think “God, she’s so ugly, why would they make her so ugly.” I think those people will leave the film thinking she’s beautiful. - Rooney Mara on Lisbeth Salander

"It was really important for all her [Lisbeth’s] clothing to seem authentic, for nothing to appear to be brand new, everything to kind of be worn in. A lot of her stuff is very dirty, there’s holes and things like her boot is taped up… to feel very lived in. I wanted her to be someone that could easily disappear into the shadows if she chose to."
