What Are You Like, Rosamund Pike?

I wanted to make a quick post regarding the fantastic English actress, Rosamund Pike.

I had one idea in my head about who she is, naively based on her characters in Made in Dagenham and The World’s End, but since seeing Gone Girl my image of her has been completely crushed.
