Did Emma Watson Cut Hair for Movie Role?
By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: Days after a candid interview revealing that Harry Potter‘s Emma Watson has wanted to cut her hair since she was 16, rumors have surfaced that suggest another reason may have also spurred the dramatic change.
Watson’s name has come up in the latest round of actresses rumored to be competing for the role of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the film based off the best-selling novel of the same name by author Steig Larsson. Lisbeth has been described on the author’s website as “a young computer hacker, an asocial punk and most importantly, a young woman driven by her vindictiveness.” Other names that have come up for the coveted role include Natalie Portman, Kristen Stewart, Scarlett Johanssen, Keira Knightly and Zoe Saldana.
So far, only three actors have been confirmed for the project: Robin Wright (who has gone back to using her pre-marriage name since her divorce from actor Sean Penn became final last week); Daniel Craig, and Stellan Skarsgård.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is scheduled for a December 21, 2011 release date. (IMDB)
