Rosamund Pike Did 36 Takes of Her Neil Patrick Harris 'Gone Girl' Sex Scene

Rosamund Pike gets a stunning close up on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine’s February 2015 issue.

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

On doing 36 takes of Neil Patrick Harris‘ sex scene for Gone Girl: “I spent more time in front of the camera on that film than in my entire career to date, because he’s shooting five to six hours of footage a day, and over a hundred days shooting—that mounts up.” Director David Fincher adds, “I told them to rehearse it for three days, as we’re pumping five gallons of blood out of Desi’s throat. 36 sheets, 450 gallons of blood and 36 pairs of underpants”

On a strange fan encounter: “I went into this lovely Spanish shop and the girl said, ‘Has anyone ever told you you look just like the girl in Gone Girl?,’ and I said, ‘Well, that’s me.’ And then she just looked at me with this deepest look of suspicion. And I said, ‘I’m pregnant, so I look a bit different, and I’m English.’ And she’s like, ‘But why are you here?’ And I said, ‘Well, I’m from here.’ And it was like, ‘You should not be buying cold cuts in a restaurant in Soho!’”

On her partner Robie Uniacke: “[He's] the most interesting person. [He's a] clever partner who’s got a very astute mind and is very, very well read and articulate. The quality I most admire about him is he sees the value in anonymity.”
