The Harry Potter fashionista is said to be in the running for the big role, but will have to fight off other Hollywood heavyweights to land the part
Harry Potter fashionista Emma Watson is said to be in the running to play the lead in Hollywood’s anticipated adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and is rumoured to have chopped her locks off for the part.
Just last week the Burberry beauty lopped off her long hair in favour of a short pixie crop, posting pictures on facebook, and revealing it was a ‘liberating experience’.
But now it seems Emma may have had an ulterior movie for going from long to short.
The star has reportedly been screen tested for the biggest vacant role in Hollywood – the lead in Steig Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
‘Emma has auditioned with director David Fincher and cut her hair to look the part,’ one insider told the Sun.
‘The character of Lisbeth is a misfit goth-type girl with spikey hair.’
But it seems Emma may have a fight on her hands if she wants to secure the coveted role. Carey Mulligan, Ellen Page, Natalie Portman and Kristen Stewart are rumoured to have their eyes on the part.
