  • Rooney Mara is a committed vegan.
  • Rooney is actually her middle name.
  • She's been nominated for an Oscar twice.

Rooney Mara has been named as the new face of the seriously chic brand Givenchy. The 27-year-old actress has signed up with the French beauty house and will front the campaigns for its famed parfum.

Rooney (real name Patricia Rooney Mara) is best known for her role in the smash hit film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, but the exotic beauty has appeared in an unusually wide variety of roles. There was the indie flick Carol for instance, A Ghost Story and Una. She played the title role in the film Mary Magdalene.  She's been nominated for two Oscars and yet somehow she seems to have slipped under the commercial Hollywood radar.

She isn't blonde, she doesn't wear revealing clothes, she once pierced her nipples. Nutshell -- the woman is uber cool. And now, the face of an equally cool fragrance. What we're talking about here is a match made in French beauty house heaven.

Givenchy Parfums CEO Romain Spitzer is clearly delighted by the new partnership. “Rooney is a captivating actress with a remarkable talent," he says. "Her committed and generous personality, elegant look and radiating intensity perfectly reflect the world of the new fragrance she will embody from Autumn 2018 onwards. We are very much looking forward to working with her.”
