Girlfriend Rooney sat down to do an interview with Vogue, and she’s far different than her roles as Nancy in A Nightmare on Elm Street and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

On not being seen as your typical nude model:

“There’s a certain way people are used to seeing nude women, and that’s in a submissive, coy pose, not looking at the camera. And in this poster, I’m looking dead into the camera with no expression on my face. I think it freaks a lot of people out.”

On the difference between the original Swedish portrayal of Noomi Rapace and her own:

“One of the things that make our version that much more heartbreaking, is that even though I am playing a 24-year-old, I look much younger. I look like a child.”

And she’s nothing like Paris Hilton:

“I don’t have a trust fund. I grew up in a little cul-de-sac in the suburbs and went to public school. I went to Costco on the weekends. When my great-grandfathers founded those teams it cost, like, $500. My dad is one of eleven children. I am one of 40 grandchildren. What bothers me about the whole trust-fund thing is that it sort of presumes that everything is handed to you. And if there is one thing about my family that I do identify with, it is that everyone is extremely hardworking. Also, the people whom I grew up with all did things they really loved. And I think that’s an important lesson.”

On the media circus sure to surround “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” upon its release:

“That kind of fame is not something I ever wanted for myself. It just so happens that this huge, gigantic monster of a film came around that also happens to have the most incredible character that I ever could have dreamed up. But my fear with a movie like this is the kind of exposure you get from it. I think that can be death to an actor. The more people know about you, the less they can project who you are supposed to be. It’s unfortunate that you really only get one shot at that. After this, I won’t be able to be that girl again.”

Right, well, I pretty much love this girl. If she’d get rid of those stupid, God-awful bangs, we’d be in business.
