Rosamund attended the 8th Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party yesterday. She looked stunning in a Giambattista Valli dress. Photos from the event have been added to our gallery.
It has been an amazing ride for Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike, who, as Amy Dunne, puts the freak on her screen husband Ben Affleck and bloodily dispatches Neil Patrick Harris.
Her Oscar-nominated performance garnered major kudos upon the movie’s release in October and she gave birth to her second child in December.
“To have this new life and this complete career turning point at the same time — it’s a pretty heady cocktail,” says Pike, 36. “But the two are so separate.”
The actress gives USA TODAY’s Bryan Alexander five insights into her world.
1. Her partner likes that Amy Dunne lives within her.
Some might be put off by Pike’s dead-on sociopath performance. Not her true-life partner, Robie Uniacke. “He says it’s part of the appeal,” says Pike.
She found a gateway into her character via online forums such as sociopathworld.com, which discusses, for example, how sociopaths study and feign emotion to appear like regular people.
“It’s people owning it in private, anonymously,” says Pike. “There’s a feeling there that one is not unlucky to be a sociopath. I think they feel more charismatic, more empowered. Life is good, without getting hung on emotional issues.”
2. She has natural-born pipes, but she hasn’t shown them off on film.
London-born Pike is the only child of opera singers Caroline and Julian Pike. She, too, has vocal chops, but hasn’t had screen occasion to share them. Into the Woods director Rob Marshall recently asked informally if she could sing on screen.
“I felt very inclined to say yes. But I have yet to sing in a professional capacity,” says Pike. “Never say never.”
In the meantime, she’s happy to sing Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan in her car.

As promised I’ve added additional photos from Rosamund from last night’s British Academy Film Awards. Unfortunately Rosamund did not win a BAFTA for her role as Amy Dunne in “Gone Girl”, the award went to Julianne Moore. Massive thanks to my friend Gaby, who is the webmaster of Claire Danes Network, for donating the photos.
Sorry for the delay on this guys. Last Thursday Rosamund was a guest during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Check out part of the interview below.
