Late Night with Seth Meyers

LIVE with Kelly and Michael
We 9/24: Denzel Washington, Rosamund Pike
Last night Rosamund was a guest at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. She was there to promote Gone Girl, which will premiere during the New York Film Festival tonight. Check out a clip of the interview below.
Jimmy talks to Rosamund Pike about her movie Gone Girl and the moment she was offered the lead role.
With all the Gone Girl news you’d almost forget that Rosamund had another movie coming out. I found a review for What We Did On Our Holiday. Check out the entire review at this site.
Pike and Tennant are both very convincing in a wits end portrayal of parenthood, juggling the attempts to manage every childhood issue with the very real problems of the end of their own relationship, trying to remain calm when all around them is begging them to lose control. The script here is probably most impressive, suggesting an understanding reserved for those that have lived through the relationship issues witnessed here. Thankfully, this never becomes too overbearing, with both Hamilton an Jenkin clearly keen to veer away from becoming too bogged down in these potentially depressing plot pitfalls and instead keeping the mood airy and light for long periods, which given the plot, is no mean feat at all.
Earlier tonight Rosamund attended the London premiere of What We Did On Our Holiday. We’ve added the first few photos of her during the premiere to our gallery with hopefully more to follow soon!
Edit: Tons of extra photos have been added thanks to my friend Nicole, who is the webmaster of Lily James Source.
Seems like the first reviews are really coming out now. This time I have the review from Variety for you. Once again they have great things to say about Rosamund’s portrayal of Amy. Check their website for the full review and read the part about Rosamund below.
Still, as its title suggests, “Gone Girl” belongs to its leading lady. Pike is the sort of elegantly composed blonde beauty with whom Hitchcock would have had a field day, and some may well quibble that the actress’s cool British hauteur doesn’t fully capture Amy’s America’s-sweetheart side. Yet as evidenced by her years of solid supporting work, she also possesses the sort of ferocious charisma that magnetizes the screen, and it’s a thrill to watch her fully embrace the showiest, most substantial role of her career. Hers is the low, seductive voice we hear coaxing us through the story’s early passages, and hers is the character who ultimately exhibits the most dynamic range: In any given scene, her Amy can seem vulnerable, aggrieved, calculating, heroic, overmatched, viperous and terrifying.
The Hollywood Reporter has written a great review for Rosamund’s upcoming movie Gone Girl and they have great things to say about Rosamund’s and her co-star Ben Affleck’s performance. Check out the entire review on THR.com and read some snippets about Rosamund below.
A good-looking pair of New York writers, Amy (Rosamund Pike) and Nick (Ben Affleck) were uprooted and transplanted, quite infelicitously, to small-town Missouri, thanks to a financial setback and Nick’s father’s illness. Glamorous and sexy back East, they quickly became grating and loveless as they knocked around a personality-free house in one of the world’s most boring places.
Affleck, who has never been more ideally cast, delivers a beautiful balancing act of a performance, fostering both sympathy and the suspicion that his true self lies somewhere between shallow jerk and heartless murderer. Pike, who has been notable in several roles over the past dozen years (Pride & Prejudice, Jack Reacher) but has rarely played full-blown leads, is powerful and commanding. Making Amy even steelier and more brazen than one might have imagined, she evinces no vulnerability but, rather, a strong sense of self-worth, as Amy seems to dare others to size themselves up against her. Physically and emotionally, Pike looks to have immersed herself in this profoundly calculating character, and the results are impressive.
Along with the parallel structural device and alternating narrative voices, what distinguishes the novel Gone Girl from any number of other modern mystery thrillers is its corrosive view of marriage, a theme amply underlined by Pike’s spiky performance.
