Rooney Mara goes topless, shows off nipple ring for provocative 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' poster

rooney-mara-topless-tattoo.jpgWe have to hand it to "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" star Rooney Mara -- she's certainly going all-out for her role as damaged goth investigator Lisbeth Salander. The film, which won't even hit theaters for another six months, has already launched a highly provocative marketing campaign, including a leaked Redband trailer and the poster above.

In the uncensored version of the poster, Mara bares all -- including Lisbeth's nipple ring -- as co-star Daniel Craig holds her protectively. You can view the image here, but obviously, it's NSFW. In addition to this revealing shot, Mara posed for a racy in-character spread in W Magazine.

The first poster for the film (billed the "Feel bad movie of Christmas"), showed a brighter version of the same image, with the release date stamped over Mara's exposed nipple - though you could still see the barbell piercing she's sporting.

What do you think of the controversial marketing campaign? Weigh in below.
