Daniel Craig On Intimate Piercings For 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' (VIDEO)

Rooney Mara, as the world has been so repeatedly made aware, underwent a radical transformation to play Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." She went from having lush brown hair to angular black spikes and saw her skin go from flawless to filled with tattoos. What got the most public attention, however, was her new set of piercings: ear, lip, nose and nipple.

Her co-star Daniel Craig, on the other hand, was able to avoid any major physical adjustments -- aside from the weight he was happy to put on -- in order to play journalist Mikael Blomkvist. To one reporter, from NerdTears.com, that discrepancy begged a question: if Craig did have to get a piercing, where would he have it done?

Given that Craig is an intensely private man and is known best for his indomitably badass take on James Bond, his answer -- and the jovial nature with which he gives it -- may surprise the casual fan unaccustomed to his easy sense of humor and sarcasm. Because note, this is sarcasm. It's just also too funny not to share.

Keep watching the video, by the way, for serious answers about "Dragon Tattoo" from Craig, Rooney and their co-star Christopher Plummer.
