Scarlett Johansson might be one of the most sought after actress
but it did not help her to fetch the female lead role in Davin
Fincher's forthcoming movie The Girl with the Dragon
Tattoo (2011). Well, her sex appeal among her fans is the
reason behind it.
Director David Fincher believes that Scarlett Johansson is a
great actress but she is too sexy for the role of Lisbeth Salander
in the forthcoming Hollywood movie. Speaking to the Vogue magazine,
he said, “Look, we saw some amazing people. Scarlett Johansson was
great. It was a great audition, I'm telling you. But the thing that
with Scarlett is, you can't wait for her to take her clothes
The filmmaker explains that his leading lady should look like
'E.T' dolls, which should give the audience the feel of lovability
and strangeness. He felt that Rooney Mara has that quality and she
could do the justice for the character.
However, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo also features
Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer, Robin Wright Penn, Stellan
Skarsgard and others in the cast. The movie will hit the US
theatres on December 21.
