Celebeauties | Separated at birth?

Is it just me or does Lisbeth Salander look like a more satanic version of our little local albino Yo-Landi Vi$$er?

Yo-Landi, doing something very Zef that we'll never understand.

When I imagine the whole angel/devil routine (you know…sitting on my shoulders whispering sweet/vicious nothings into my ears)…these are the two that come to mind. Although I imagine sweet Rooney Mara would make a better angel than blondie Yo-landi…I doubt The First Lady of Zef would be giving me all die antwoords.

I thought perhaps I was the only one, but it turns out that there was indeed a rumour going around a year or so ago that David Fincher, the director of the-movie-based-on-the-book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, originally wanted our very own zef chica for the role of Lisbeth Salander. Media junkies reported that Yo-Landi told him computer sez no, but Fincher denies she was even offered the part.

But the resemblance is still uncanny and we can’t help but feel like Yo-Landi might have been a leeeetle hint of inspirasie for the character…if only for her hairstyle…and eyebrows…and inability to crack a smile.

Of course, there’s still no mistaking them in public – Rooney cleans up like a princess and…well, we couldn’t really find many a squeaky clean picture of Yo-Landi. Perhaps she’ll surprise us one day and rock out with her frock out, and a beautiful red lip?

Yo-Landi from her Max Normal days looking...fairly normal.
