Watch: Rosamund Pike in first TV Spot for 'Gone Girl'

Image
The first TV spot for  Gone Girl starring Rosamund PikeBen Affleck aired on TV last night during commercials of the Emmys 2014 telecast.

Rosamund's character Amy Dunne seems a bit of a mystery, but she reveals a very interesting inspiration for her character: Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, the late JFK Jr's late wife. “There’s not much out there about her. You never heard her speak,” Pike told EW. “You just see those pictures of her hiding her face. The way she moved—I used quite a lot of that body language and mood. She’s the dream girl. That’s what Amy was for Nick. She’s the one you can’t get out of your head because she’s perfect.” Gone Girl opens in wide U.S theater release October 3rd!
