Rosamund Pike is the cover star of Town & Country’s December 2018/January 2019 issue – on newsstands now.
The self-described Hollywood chameleon tackles the life story of war correspondent Marie Colvin and exclusively for T&C (photographed for the cover by Liz Collins and styled by Nicoletta Santoro in Dior and Cartier), Colvin‘s fellow war correspondent Janine di Giovanni talks to Pike about A Private War (in theaters now).
Inside her T&C cover story, Pike, a former Bond girl who broke out in the U.S. in 2015 with an Oscar-nominated performance in Gone Girl, opens up about why she wanted to play Marie Colvin, her hope for audiences seeing the film, family life in London, and the surprise her second son’s early birth gave her.
On what she wanted to achieve by playing Marie Colvin: “I wanted to capture her spirit of rebellion. But I also had to dive into Curie’s bitterness.”
On her hope for audiences after seeing A Private War: “I want people to care about journalism again.”
On the surprise of her second son’s early birth: “There was no time for pain medication, no time to get to the clinic, so I just let my body take over. I thought, If I can let my mind go somewhere else, my body will do the job.”
On life with her family in London: “People might recognize me, but I think they just see me as a mother trying to handle small kids on the subway.” Image courtesy of Town & Country. (source)
In advance of the release of her highly anticipated memoir, Becoming, the former First Lady, Michelle Obama (photographed by Miller Mobley wearing Dior) stars on the December cover of ELLE US and gets candid with Oprah Winfrey about her struggles with Barack, the threats to her children’s lives, and her vow to be a force for good.
The image is styled by Meredith Koop with hair and makeup by Yene Damtew and Carl Ray.
On Donald Trump’s birther claims: “In order for my children to have a normal life, even though they had security, they were in the world in a way that we weren’t. To think that some crazed person might be ginned up to think my husband was a threat to the country’s security; and to know that my children, every day, had to go to a school, and soccer games, parties, and travel; to think that this person would not take into account that this was not a game—that’s something that I want the country to understand. I want the country to take this in, in a way I didn’t say out loud, but I am saying now. It was reckless, it put my family in danger, and it wasn’t true. And he knew it wasn’t true.”
On going to counseling with her husband: “It was about me exploring my sense of happiness. What clicked in me was that I need support and I need some from him. But I needed to figure out how to build my life in a way that works for me.”
On the pressure of being the first black family: “We felt the pressure from the minute we started to run. First of all, we had to convince our base that a black man could win. It wasn’t even winning over Iowa. We first had to win over black people. Because black people like my grandparents—they never believed this could happen. They wanted it for us. But their lives had told them, “No. Never.” Hillary was the safer bet for them, because she was known. Opening hearts up to the hope that America would put down its racism for a black man—I think that hurt too much. It wasn’t until Barack won Iowa that people thought, Okay. Maybe so.” (source)
