Rooney Mara greeted fans at the Santa Barbara Film Festival last night, and the star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo happily signed autographs and posed for pictures. While she's still rocking Lisbeth Salander's black hair and pale skin, it was a nice change of pace to see the starlet wearing something colorful!
The 26-year-old actress was presented with the Virtuosos Award, which honors "a select group of actors who have distinguished themselves through performances in film." Other 2012 Virtuosos Award honorees include Shailene Woodley, Patton Oswalt, Andy Serkis, Demián Bichir and Melissa McCarthy, so she's definitely in good company -- and let's not forget about that Oscar nod!
Think she'll win Best Actress?
