British actress Rosamund Pike covers the May 2014 issue of W magazine . In the “Dark and Twisted” photo spread shot in Los Angeles by Willy Vanderperre the 35-years-old actress looks flawless.
In an interview for the magazine Pike talks about her new movie ‘Gone Girl’ , being a Bond girl and her career .
On being 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.”
On her acting career : “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. Instantly, I had to come to terms with myself as a woman and also as an object. I was looking at myself from the outside for the first time. That awareness, for any girl, is both horrible and fascinating.”
On David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’ movie : “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.”
