Rosamund Pike


Anyone who has seen Gone Girl will know that there was one particularly gory scene which you may have watched through your fingers.

And it involved Rosamund Pike and Neil Patrick Harris…on a bed… with a box cutter.

Yeah we know, the memories are stressing us out too.

Reflecting on her preparation for her role as Amy Dunne in the gripping thriller, Rosamund told Graham Norton that in order to play the part to the best of her ability she enlisted the help of a local butchers… and a Dora the Explorer doll.

No, seriously.

Opening up about the scene which saw her character kill her former boyfriend during sex, Rosamund said: "I'd never cut anyone's throat so I went to a local butchers and with great determination set about the carcasses with a Stanley knife in full view of customers."

And not only did Rosamund get knife-happy in front of the locals, she also did a little improvising with poor ol' Dora.

"I rehearsed with a Dora the Explorer doll in my back yard, probably in full view of the neighbours!" she laughed while chatting about the movie which had audiences on the edge of their seats back in 2014.

And if anything, this little reveal has made the whole thing even more terrifying.



It’s hard to believe that it was three summers ago that all we could talk about was the thrilling summer read, Gone Girl.

And for a refreshing change, the movie was almost as good as the book. This was in no small part thanks to the stellar cast and the brilliant direction from David Fincher.

While author of the novel, Gillian Flynn, has remained sceptical on whether or not she may get down to writing a sequel, we do have one ally on our side – none other than Charlize Theron.

The Oscar-winning actress stars in another on-screen adaption of Ms Flynn’s, Dark Places. And it appears that Charlize is as eager as to try and get Gillian to write the next instalment of Gone Girl as we are.

In an interview with E!, the Mad Max: Fury Road star joined reporter Marc Malkin in attempting to woo the author into telling us what happens next to Amy and Nick Dunne.

“Come on,” Charlize urges. “You have to.”

To which Ms Flynn replied, “I don’t know if I can go back to the Dunnes quite yet – those diabolical Dunnes. I think about it every once in a while… I do. It’s hard to shake sometimes.”

Well, at least that didn’t rule anything out!

Thakfully Charlize had a fool-proof plan (hmmm) which she revealed. “I’ll get her drunk tonight and make her sign a contract,” the 39-year-old proposed.

Although it doesn’t look like anything is going to be in the works anytime soon, Gillian has said that she wouldn’t rule out a second film in the future if she could get David Fincher, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike back on board. 



We always look forward to the Oscars for some serious fashion and hair inspiration, but the problem is how to actually recreate those red carpet looks without the help of a million-dollar stylist!

Thankfully Great Lengths have stepped in with this handy tutorial showing you how to style your hair in a chic knotted bun like Rosamund Pike's gorgeous one from Sunday night's Academy Awards.

This is WAY easier than you might think, especially with the step by step instructions.


Now… to get our hands on that gorgeous Givenchy gown to complete the look!

A girl can dream, right?!



Congratulations are in order for Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike today, as it has been confirmed that she has welcomed her second child.

The Gone Girl star gave birth to a baby boy at home on Tuesday, having announced her pregnancy in June.

The 35-year-old and her long-term partner, Robie Uniacke, are already parents to two-year-old son Solo.

Speaking after the announcement of her pregnancy in the summer, Rosamund revealed that playing the role of Amy in Gone Girl was what drove her to try for another baby.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, she said: “After filming I just knew I had to go out there and make a human being. The film was so tough and such a hard experience that the instant I finished, I thought, ‘I need to bring something positive into the world.’”

What lovely news for the star! After her interesting choice of name for her first child, we can't wait to see what she names her new bundle of joy!



We don’t know how actors film sex scenes. We really don’t. Talk about the most awkward thing EVER! And Rosamund Pike sounds like she’s not a fan of them either!

The actress opened up about filming sex scenes for Gone Girl with Neil in a recent interview, and it sounds pretty cringe worthy!

“It was very funny doing [rehearsals for our sex] scene. David [Fincher] left Neil and me alone on that set for like two hours to make sure we could do it. But when it’s just two of you, basically kind of f**king on a bed, it feels so inappropriate.”

‘Inappropriate’ sounds like an understatement to us! Rosamund’s character was pretty busy with all the men in the film – as she said that getting intimate with her onscreen husband Ben Affleck wasn’t always easy either, as the two had such a strange relationship:

“Ben and I would have these scenes that were very giggly and sort of romantic, and then we'd go to this very dark place… I tried to get us out of that. Neil was incredible at that. We were in hysterics in the editing room.”

We are pretty excited about this film here in SHEmazing! – only a few more weeks to wait – it’s released the first week in October! Yay!



British actress, Rosamund Pike has confirmed that she’s expecting a second child.

Rosamund’s rep. revealed this evening that the actress is expecting her second baby with her boyfriend, Robie Uniacke.

The Pride and Prejudice star spoke about her unique relationship with Robie and how she is in no rush to get married.

“It is interesting to break all the rules. I’m not married, I have a baby, and it feels infinitely more right.”

The couple are also parents to their two-year-old son, Solo.
