Posted on April 16, 2014
Actress Rosamund Pike covers the May 2014 issue of W magazine. Rosamund is wearing Prada on the cover, which was photographed by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo. In the interview, Rosamund talks about being chosen by David Fincher for the role Gone Girl. She also talks about getting cast as Miranda Frost in Die Another Day.
On Being Chosen by David Fincher for Gone Girl: "I do remember saying to David, 'I know you know I have this character in me; you zeroed in on me for good reason.' With David Fincher, it's like being X-rayed - he sees things that you may not want anyone to see. Now I have to prove him right - I have to show the world that I'm as dark as he thinks I am."
On Getting Cast as a Bond Girl: "Before I was cast as a Bond girl, I had never actually seen a James Bond movie. The Bond audition was strange - I'd just come back from China, doing the kind of hippie-backpacking thing that people do when they leave school. All the girls in this beautiful old town house waiting to see the casting director were sleek and dressed in what seemed to me like leather. I was wearing something very thick and woolly. I was convinced I was all wrong." She also says, "The Bond film was like an ejector seat from normality into a crazy circus world. It was trial by fire. I was 21, and I was made to look far more sophisticated than I felt."
