Rooney Mara has mastered the art of being a heavily tattooed waif, so, like any good hipster, she's got Brooklyn in her sights.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" star has signed on as the lead in the film adaptation of Colm Toibin's 2009 novel, "Brooklyn."

The book tells the story of Eilis Lacey, a young Irish woman living in the 1950s, who leaves her homeland for Brooklyn, only to find herself so enamored with her American life that she becomes unsure if she can return to her native country.

Toibin's novel is being adapted for the big screen by Nick Hornby, who last made his way to theaters with his adaptation of Lynn Barber's "An Education," for which Horsnby was nominated for an Oscar. Get More »

Must be rich folk can afford better body armor than your average working class vigilante, and 400-years as a vampire gives you a leg up playing the stockmarket, as Forbes Magazine adds Bruce Wayne (#8) and Tony Stark (#5) as well as "Twilight" vampire Carlisle Cullen (Peter Facinelli) at #3, to their 2012 list of the "Fictional 15," the wealthiest made-up people in the world.

Our Nominees for Worst Dressed at the 2012 Oscars

Hollywood might be the land of dreams, but the Oscars are the night of fashion — and in an industry in which everyone's a critic, it comes as no surprise that we've got a few opinions on some of the more (ahem) questionable choices of the night.

We know it may be hard to imagine that some of the most stunning people on the planet, clad in some of the world's most coveted labels, could manage to look anything less than perfect, but a handful of stars who walked this carpet have proven that it's possible. Trust us.

So how does one land on our worst dressed list for the Academy Awards? While there's no surefire way, there are a few cardinal sins to avoid, including (but not limited to) long sleeves, dressing inappropriately for one's age, and, last but not least, playing it way too safe.
