The 10 Best Instances of Female Cinematic De-Prettification

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | January 12, 2011 | Comments ()


This morning, Bleeding Cool uncovered the first really good photo of Rooney Mara's transformation for David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It's as total a transformation as Noomi Rapace's was in the Swedish version, which bodes well for Fincher's adaptation (you know what else bodes well? That it's Fincher's adaptation).

I'm even more excited about the movie than I was before. And while it may not be considered much of a downgrade for certain goth-y types, for mainstream America, it's a definite de-prettification given how stunning Rooney Mara looks in reality. So, why not? Here's her de-prettification put into the context of nine other cinematic de-prettifications.

10. Renee Zelwegger in The Bridget Jones Diary
