Here’s some amazing acting advice from actress Rosamund Pike.

Rosamund Pike played a manipulative and psychopathic Amy Dunne in the hit thriller Gone Girl. Her acting was so incredibly believable and shockingly amazing. But, Pike, 37, revealed she had an unusual method when it came to rehearsing her sex scenes for the film, when she appeared on The Graham Norton Show.

She explained: ‘I rehearsed with a Dora the Explorer doll in my back yard, probably in full view of the neighbors.’
