Rosamund sat down with W Magazine to discuss books, films, art and more.

It’s been a few years since Rosamund Pike starred in Gone Girl, but the British actress has found other ways of staying off the map, from distancing herself from the news for days to keeping her social media-less phone on airplane mode. It’s no surprise, then, that lately she’s also been sporting a giant analog watch, which she received from IWC Schaffhausen as its brand ambassador, and which has come in particularly handy this week for her role as “timekeeper” for its partner, the Tribeca Film Festival. Fresh from flying in from London, Pike made time to sit down at the brand’s New York flagship store and talk movies and her upcoming one-woman show, in her culture diet, here.

What’s the first thing you read in the morning?
Well, I don’t read a paper. If I open my laptop, it’ll be the New York Times or it’ll be an email, but I never do it first thing in the morning—I try not to read anything for the first hour. I keep all my devices on airplane mode. If I do read, I read a book before I let the world kind of crash in.

What books are you reading right now?
I’m reading a lot of biographies, actually—I’m doing a film about Marie Colvin, so I’m reading a lot of her journalism at the moment. I’ve been obsessed with her and wanting to make a film about her for well over a year, so as soon as I heard there was something out there, I really wanted to do it. I just believe in her courage and voice, and am very, very compelled by it. But for the last year, really, I’ve been incredibly engrossed in rereading Liu Cixin’s The Three-Body Problem. It’s a Chinese science fiction trilogy made up of three immense books that are the best thing I’ve read in a while.

Rosamund sat down with Conde Nast Traveler to discuss her year abroad while filming several films.

Rosamund Pike has spent a busy year shuttling between her home in London and Africa, where she filmed political thriller High Wire Act in Morocco—the latest go-to location for filmmakers (Tangier stands in for Beirut)—and A United Kingdom in Botswana. Based on an epic true love story, Kingdom stars David Oyelowo as Botswana’s first president, Seretse Khama, who stirred up some trouble in the 1940s by marrying a white British woman, Ruth Williams (Pike). The country has been referred to as one of the movie’s main characters, and it’s easy to see why. When Pike came to New York City recently to attend the IWC Schaffhausen’s For the Love of Cinema gala, she took some time to chat with Condé Nast Traveler about her recent travels, family vacations, and her guide to London.

Your career obviously takes you around the world. Do you get inspired by the places you travel?
Yes! I did a film in Morocco and came back thinking all of my bathrooms had to be in Moroccan style. Then you realize there’s a reason that style belongs in a hotter climate and London is utterly different.

Rosamund sat down with Architectural Design to discuss how she restored her London home.

Rosamund Pike made her screen debut two decades ago, but it was her appearance in the 2014 film Gone Girl that made her a household name. Perhaps that’s why the 38-year-old English actress still possesses such an intense aura of privacy—it wasn’t until relatively recently that the public was clamoring to know every little detail of her life. Pike’s primary residence is still in London, where she lives with her partner, businessman Robie Uniacke, and their two sons, Solo and Atom. While in New York City to attend the fifth annual For the Love of Cinema event in support of the Tribeca Film Festival, hosted by IWC Schaffhausen (Pike is a brand ambassador for the luxury watch company), the actress sat down with AD to discuss the renovation of the 19th-century Georgian home she shares with her family in London.

Architectural Digest: Where did you start with your renovation?
Rosemund Pike: My house was built in 1830, as a lot of London houses are. It’s a terraced house, late Georgian period. Even before I did the inside, I restored the outside of it because I felt the love of the building was very important. I did the façade and really explored the techniques that would have been used during that period. I wanted to clean the bricks, but not to a point of modernity. So, we used spray soot to keep some of that color. We really looked into techniques for filling in the grouting also. Also, the quality of the grout we used didn’t make it too white, so it blended in. The same for all the plaster work—we made sure it was the right tenor and that it was Georgian period. And we used the colors available at that time. Inside we have very dark rooms, but we offset them with furniture and pictures.

The Telegraph published an interview with Rosamund about IWC’s new collection. Check it out below.

“I became interested in watches because I’m such a terrible timekeeper,” admits Rosamund Pike. The British actress and ambassador for IWC glances at the timepiece adorning her wrist, a bracelet version of the brand’s new 36mm Da Vinci automatic with a delicate diamond bezel and round date window. The rose-gold case goes nicely with her pink and black metallic cocktail dress – something of a development for a brand whose slogan not so long ago was “engineered for men”.

I put this to her. “Oh, that’s an invitation to storm the bastion!” she replies. This is the first time in decades that IWC has openly courted the women’s market, although it has long had female ambassadors, including Cate Blanchett. Three years ago it launched the 37mm version of its dress watch range, the Portofino, with a diamond bezel and coloured strap, which it coyly described as “for the smaller wrist” – the campaign pictures featured women wearing dinner suits.
