Has Stellan Skarsgård come over a bit of Sigmund Freud? It sort of feels the Swedish actor has a slightly of the Austrian psychologist about him in the case of comparing directors. “They all have their very own ways of working and the more talented the administrators are, the more you ought to know what their childhood was like really,” the Thor and Avengers star told Superhero Hype. “David Fincher said to me after we met, ‘This may not be fun, because I sometimes do 40 takes of every set-up’. And that i said, ‘It better be fun, and that i don’t mind doing 40 takes, so let’s make 40 fun takes’.” So was it fun? “I really enjoyed it. He’s very thorough, but it is not an anal thing,” Skarsgård added. “You can actually do 40 takes which are 40 versions of a scene, which brings it to life.” That being said, seems Fincher could be one to circumvent for actors who like hanging out of their trailer. “He works hard and fast, because of this you shoot at all times. You do not sit and wait and that i like that,” Skarsgård added. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo opens on 26 December 2011.
