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)
