Ever since Rooney Mara was picked to star in David Fincher’s upcoming adapatation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, we’ve been eager for every bit of news about her adventures as Lisbeth Salander.
To celebrate her inclusion in EW‘s Entertainers of the Year issue, Mara — alongside her Social Network cast-mates — emailed EW a personal status update. Hers comes straight from the Dragon Tattoo set in Stockholm, Sweden, where she took a moment to poke fun at Fincher’s well-known penchant for doing dozens of takes.
“It’s -9 degrees Celsius. 37 takes down, only about 42 more to go,” she writes. “Every time he says, ‘Okay, last one,’ I fall for it. Every. Single. Time. If only I could get this damn shrug right, then maybe I could go inside and my nipple ring would have time to thaw out…”
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 21, 2011.
