Rosamund Pike - Pike Stunned By Her Old Lady Image

Actress ROSAMUND PIKE was shocked when make-up artists transformed her into an old woman for her new movie role - because she looked "hideous" with wrinkles.
The former Bond girl plays Miriam, a woman who ages from her 20s to 58, in upcoming drama Barney's Version, and admits she was in "crisis" when she saw her future self.
But Pike's fears were short-lived - the make-up artist had accidentally transformed her into an 80-year-old lady.
The actress tells Britain's Culture magazine, "I had a moment of total crisis, because I thought, 'Maybe this is what I'm going to look like. I'll be hideous. And people are going to recoil.'"
And Pike's ageing fears were not eased by a later conversation with her mum: "My mother told me how it feels when men no longer stop you on the Tube and tell you you're the loveliest thing they've seen all day."
