This quote comes courtesy of Rooney Mara, who is currently filming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in Sweden. Since it was announced that Mara would play hacker Lisbeth Salander, Mara has been silent. Only a few paparazzi shotsof Mara on set have been circulating around the Internet.

I laughed out loud when I read this. While I may not be ecstatic about this adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Mara is slowly winning me over.
