Just saw this For Your Consideration advert of Gone Girl promoting Rosamund Pike for both the BAFTAs and Oscars and thought I'd add it here...
Rosamund Pike to appear on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon Thursday February 5th!
British actress Rosamund Pike memorably portrayed a Bond girl in 2002's Die Another Day. Three years later, she went on to star as Jane Bennet, the older sister of Elizabeth, in Pride & Prejudice, and in 2007 she shared screen time with Ryan Gosling in Fracture. In 2012, Pike played Queen Andromeda in Wrath of the Titans and acted opposite Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher. The actress was recently Oscar-nominated for her performance in 2014's Gone Girl.
Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike Is Adorably Overwhelmed by Award Season
British actress Rosamund Pike is nominated for a best actress Oscar for Gone Girl, and when she stopped for a Q&A at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon with reporters, she was happy to keep discussing the film and its controversial ending. It's especially nice to see the first-time nominee seem a little overwhelmed, albeit adorable and composed as she admits to her experience feeling like "a game show."Keira Knightley and Judi Dench both featured in Vanity Fair's Hollywood Portfolio in a short film directed by Jason Bell
Keira Knightley re-enacting the most famous fake orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally, and Judi Dench delivering the iconic punch line, "I'll have what she's having."

How did Bell get the two A-list actresses to participate? As he tells it, it was pretty easy. “I didn’t know which bit [Keira] would do,” he recalls, saying he offered each of the stars three or four options of a classic Hollywood scene to re-create. “She kind of laughed, and said ‘It’s the orgasm we’ve got to do.’ ”
With Knightley on board, Bell says, “it’s very easy to take it to Judi Dench.” And, in turn, getting those actresses to re-create the racy, iconic scene made participation from the rest of the stars a cinch. “Once you had Keira Knightley faking an orgasm and Judi Dench saying ‘I’ll have what she’s having,’ it was a pretty easy sell,” Bell recalls. “Everyone just said, ‘Sure, what do you want me to say?’ ”Watch the short film below...
