Vanity Fair's Hollywood cover posted


Yes, once again it's young and mostly white actresses. The ones picked for the front fold are Rooney Mara, Mia Wasikowska. Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain. Mario Testino shot the cover for the first time. Mara and Chastain are both nominated for acting Oscars. VF web story

Video bonus: Mara in her cover costume getting done up and talking to VF's Krista Smith about Lisbeth Salander, David Fincher and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

What's wrong with this picture? Rooney Mara nominated for an Oscar (and she did a fine job), but there has yet to be any acknowledgment at the Oscars for Noomi Rapace and the original Lisbeth Salander films. Rapace was on last year's Vanity Fair Hollywood cover.
