There you have it...that's a wrap, until next time!


  1. Isn't Rosamund Pike beautiful? I hope she's as nice as she looks.

  2. She's very beautiful, indeed. She's very talented and underrated actress too, who should be in more high profile films. Love her in P&P and Barney's Version. I've never meet her, but from what I've heard/read from fans who were lucky enough to have met her in person, she seems very nice and friendly.
