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.”
