Rooney Mara is sad, you guys. She and the rest of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo team put a lot of thought into what hair Lisbeth Salander would have between her legs, and now she's worried that we won't even notice! Mara says:

"There was a lot of discussion that went into my merkin for the movie, because I was naked quite a lot. And I don't think a lot of people will notice all of the attention that went into that. But there was a lot of discussions around that ... In the book she's meant to have strawberry-blonde hair originally and she dyes it, so we had a special merkin made that was, you know, strawberry-blonde so that it would fit."

Don't underestimate your audience, Rooney. We never fail to notice fine merkin craftsmanship.

I used to think merkin craftsmanship was a pointless art, because "why don't people just grow out their pubic hair?" I'm a hirsute lass myself and prefer full-bush to smoothness down south. I'll raze the forest every now and then, but it always comes back as fabulous as ever. But after having to be shaved for my c-section... I guess it's the trauma of having my vulva sliced open and stretch out to accommodate an 8 pound baby... my pubic hair has just not bounced back. Now I could use a good merkin! So sad...
