Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike Talks Being Pregnant During Magazine Photo Shoots

Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike Talks Being Pregnant During Magazine Photo Shoots

Rosamund Pike shows off her glowing smile on the cover of Glamour magazine‘s October 2014 issue, on newsstands September 16.

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

On sex scenes with Neil Patrick Harris: “Neil [who plays Amy’s obsessed ex Desi] was incredible at that. We were in hysterics in the editing room. It was very funny doing [rehearsals for our sex] scene. David 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.”

On shooting magazine covers while pregnant: “A lot of girls who are high-profile in Hollywood—they’ve been doing cover stories for big magazines since they were in their early twenties. And I haven’t. I feel quite nervous about it! And having to do cover shoots while pregnant. You’re like, ‘Well, I’m pregnant. So, you know, I haven’t really got a waist anymore.’ I don’t enjoy the pregnancy bit of having big boobs, really.”

On doing kids and career all at once: “The question is really why do so many women’s careers take off just as they have children? Is it because you are risking everything in your relationship and the risk taker in you carries through into your professional life? You have less time to worry and overanalyze—maybe that’s it. Or the huntress instinct to provide for your family is awoken. [Either way,] with children you spend so much time reexperiencing the world as a child experiences it, and that has a nourishing effect on your imagination—in my job, imagination is key.”

    This movie will forever change the life of Rosamund … and for the best! The movie isn’t even out yet and she’s receiving MAJOR Oscar buzz! Not that Fincher can do wrong (imo), but he did right by casting her as Amy. I read the book back when it was first released, I am so excited for this! Hope it lives up to the book.

    so apparently if you don’t become a mother, your career will never take off? idiot.

  • Anne

    She’s stunning, and a class act. Been a fan of her stage works. Not many celebs can look this good doing a cover shoot while pregnant.
