Rosamund Pike Says 'We Are Really Seeing Journalists Under Threat'

Rosamund Pike keeps it chic and sophisticated while attending The Committee to Protect Journalists & The Council on Foreign Relations special screening of her latest film A Private War held at NYIT Auditorium on Broadway on Thursday (November 1) in New York City.

In the film, the 39-year-old actress plays one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin who was an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.

During a panel for the film, Rosamund admitted that the film has, unfortunately, a lot to say about our present-day circumstances: “It has a very upsetting timeliness right now,” Rosamund expressed. “Which is not great, frankly. We are really seeing journalists under threat. There was a shift, I think. When Marie started her career, there was a sense that you were protected as a journalist, and it shifted, maybe during the Arab Spring— journalists did become targets. Marie had many, many upsetting experiences. She was shot at, and she was sexually assaulted as well in Cairo. Her determination to get to the front—she paid a hard price for that.”

“In America, the authenticity — or the morals — of journalists are daily being called into question, and your government seems really hostile to journalists in a very disturbing way,” Rosamund continued. “I think never has it been more important to put a story out there that really reveals what a journalist does.”
