Scarlett Johansson was deemed too sexy to star as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

By Andrea Petrou on October 18th, 2011

Scarlett Johansson was deemed too sexy to star in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Director David Fincher decided against giving the role of main character Lisbeth Salander – who is played by Rooney Mara – to the 26-year-old beauty, despite her “great” audition, because people “can’t wait for her to take her clothes off”.

He told “We flew in people from New Zealand and Swaziland and all over the place.

“Look, we saw some amazing people. Scarlett Johansson was great. It was a great audition, I’m telling you. But the thing with Scarlett is, you can’t wait for her to take her clothes off.

“I keep trying to explain this. Salander should be like E.T. If you put E.T. dolls out before anyone had seen the movie, they would say, ‘What is this little squishy thing?’ Well, you know what? When he hides under the table and he grabs the Reese’s Pieces, you love him! It has to be like that.”

Before finally casting Rooney in the role, David – who directed ‘The Social Network’, the 26-year-old stunner’s last movie – was worried he wouldn’t ever find the right actress to portray the character.

He added: “I had seen a lot of actresses. I was beginning to get to the point where I was thinking, ‘Maybe conceptually you are talking about a person who doesn’t exist’.”

Kristen Stewart and Carey Mulligan are both huge style icons and great actresses in our books. However, when there’s only one role going between the two of them, things can get a little competitive.

In fact it’s done so well that Fight Club director David Fincher is looking for a star to fill the shoes of tattoo-covered computer hacker Lisbeth Salander for an English re-make.
