Rosamund Pike Hates Movie Labels
Rosamund Pike gets frustrated when people don't know how to perceive her because she doesn't fit ''in a bracket''.
Rosamund Pike doesn't believe she "fits in a bracket".
The 'Made in Dagenham' actress - who has previously played a Bond girl in 2002's 'Die Another Day' as well as Jane Bennett in 2005's 'Pride & Prejudice' - admits she doesn't believe people can hinge her on any one role and believes many people are "misguided" about her.
Asked about the labels she is often given, including "ethereally pretty" and "posh", she told The Times Arts & Ents: "Why are people so f***ing misguided? Is it because I don't fit in a bracket? Is that the problem? I don't actually fit into anything.
"Instead, I'm someone who analyses everything and observes people closely, because that's my job. And when people don't afford me the same courtesy that p***es me off."
However, she admits she does "identify" with her 'Made in Dagenham' character Lisa Hopkins because of that exact reason.
She said: "I identify with Lisa. And when she asks Rita, 'Do you know who I actually am?', that's a question to which I feel really connected.
Rosamund is currently filming a role in comedy spy spoof 'Johnny English' alongside Rowan Atkinson and Gillian Anderson.
