Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike to 'W Magazine': I Have to Prove I'm as Dark as David Fincher Thinks I Am!

Rosamund Pike gets her close up on the cover of W Magazine‘s May 2014 issue, on newsstands April 21.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Gone Girl actress had to share with the mag:

On landing the role in Gone Girl: “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.”

On being chosen by David Fincher for the role: “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.”

David, on choosing Rosamund: “I liked that people didn’t immediately know who Rosamund was. I’d always liked Rosamund in movies, but I didn’t really know her. That made her very interesting.”

    So happy for Rosamund! An incredible actress who deserves this more than anyone out there! She is going to rock this part, she’s perfect for Amy. Have been a huge fan of hers for years, this is her big break. A huge + possible chance of an Oscar too! Congrats to Rosamund and a huge thank you to Mr. Fincher (who I’m OBSESSED with and still can’t believe he’s directing this movie) for giving her this opportunity that’s definitely going to change her life!
