David Fincher: Scarlett Johansson too sexy for Dragon Tattoo Role


Scarlett Johansson was just too sexy to play edgy Lisbeth Salander in the big-screen adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, director David Fincher tells the November issue of Vogue.

"We flew in people from New Zealand and Swaziland and all over the place,” he says. “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," he goes on. "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."
I'm assuming this interview was done before Johansson's pictures were leaked.

This is the same reason they ultimately passed on me for The Dark Knight Rises.

Lisebth Salander isn't supposed to be sexy or hot, so he's right I guess.

He's kinda right, but said it in the worst way possible.

So the actress that did get picked to play Lisbeth can live comfortable knowing that she's not nearly as sexy as Scarlett Johansson.
