There is no denying the fact that Rosamund Pike's 'Beauty Close-Up' for W Magazine's May issue isn't a big deal. First off, it's not just one cover it's two and secondly the 35-year-old Brit actress talks her latest role in Gone Girl.
The first cover sees Pike doing that whole natural glowy, undone look (read: nudes and immaculate contouring) in a Prada top and dress styled by Olivier Rizzo and photographed by Willy Vanderperre. And yes, she makes a turban look incredible.
On her latest role in Gone Girl Pike tells the fashion glossy: "The only evidence I have that I got the call to play Amy is a selfie of me jumping in the rain in the Highlands.
"I look both happy and thoroughly daunted-the whole 'You got the best gig in years' scenario gives me the creeps. I'm a very hard worker, and maybe people who have underestimated me or just thought I looked good will say they were wrong."
This might be an amazing gig for the Brit beauty but let's not go forgetting she was an actual Bond girl, yes Miranda Frost in Die Another Day.
On being cast by producer by David Fincher, Pike tells the magazine: "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."
Pike's second cover for the mag's 'Beauty Issue' is all intrigue, mystique and drama. Think dark side, think sultry beauty shot by David Fincher. In a monochrome Valentino dress and Van Cleef & Arpels rings the look is all about the reveal and sees Pike with a slicked back updo removing her makeup. Smudgy much?
