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 off."
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.
