Rooney Mara stars as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. If you saw her in The Social Network and were puzzled over how she could portray tougher-than-tough computer hacker Lisbeth, then wonder no longer. Just pick up the February issue of W, which features a photo spread of Mara going full-out Lisbeth.

The text also features a significant clue to how the movie will differ from Stieg Larsson's novel:

Fincher’s film departs dramatically from the book: Mikael Blomkvist is more gentlemanly, Salander... is more aggressive—and the ending has been completely altered.

Millennium Trilogy fans (and I know there are a lot of you, since The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest was near the top of our 2010 Readers' Choice list): How do you feel about Fincher changing the ending? Do you prefer strict interpretations of your favorite books?
