Rosamund Pike Opens Up About Suffering From 'Imposter Syndrome'

Rosamund Pike graces the cover of the latest issue of PorterEdit, out now.

Here’s what the 39-year-old A Private War actress had to say…

On suffering from ‘imposter syndrome’ at the start of her acting career: “In the beginning, especially in the Bond film [Die Another Day], you think, ‘What right do I have to be here? Who am I?’ I look at people in their twenties now and I think, God, you’re so self-composed. But I’m sure I seemed composed [then], too.”

On wanting to make sure that young actresses are alright when she is on set with them: “It was the height of the #MeToo movement, and I thought, I am just going to make sure I check in with all these younger actresses. They probably look pretty composed, but I remember looking composed and feeling so insecure, not knowing what to do. I’m not going to take outward appearance as [a sign] that somebody is fine.”

On why she won’t be inviting many friends to the premiere of A Private War: “I don’t want to put [my friends] in a situation where I am center of attention. I think it’s why I don’t necessarily want to have a wedding.”
