When Rosamund Pike landed the highly coveted role of Amy Dunne in Gone Girl, she was best known for her strong supporting roles. But all of that is about the change when she takes center stage in the upcoming mystery thriller.
The 35-year-old British actress, who stars opposite Ben Affleck in the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel, graces the cover of W Magazine's May issue and opens up the moment she found out she was chosen for the career-changing character.
"The only evidence I have that I got the call to play Amy is a selfie of me jumping in the rain in the Highlands," the blond beauty revealed to W's editor-at-large Lynn Hirschberg. Unfortunately for Pike, she accidentally deleted the confirmation text from Gone Girl director David Fincher.
