Talking to press, Pike said: "People have ridiculous expectations of a mate."In my grandmother's day, you wouldn't expect your husband to fulfill the same need in you as your sister, or girlfriends, or colleagues at work.She also received British Independent Film Award nominations for An Education, Made in Dagenham (2010), and was nominated for a Genie Award for Barney's Version (2010).In 2014, her performance in the psychological thriller film Gone Girl was met with critical acclaim and she was awarded the Saturn Award for Best Actress and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress, the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, and the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama.She said: “I have a very clever partner who’s got a very astute mind and is very, very well read and articulate and ruthless about how something I do might play out on screen.
Her earlier boyfriend, Simon Woods, turned out to be homosexual.(born 27 January 1979) is an English actress who began her acting career by appearing in stage productions such as Romeo and Juliet and Skylight.After her screen debut in the television film A Rather English Marriage (1998) and television roles in Wives and Daughters (1999) and Love in a Cold Climate (2001), she received international recognition for her film debut as Bond girl Miranda Frost in Die Another Day (2002), for which she received the Empire Award for Best Newcomer.You'd have different needs met by different people.Now we want all our needs met by one person, and I don't believe that's possible." While I wouldn't go so far as to use the word ridiculous, Pike has a point.Our partners don't really stand a chance against the romanticised version of what love and marriage is meant to be.In this idealised world, they are meant to be our soulmates - a word that is inherently daft because it implies destiny and if you're thinking on those lines, you might well join the type of people who clip their toenails on a Tuesday because their horoscope said so.Decades ago we had a generation of women who solely relied on their husbands for income and physical comfort.While the rise of the working woman has put paid to that, it seems there may be an unexpected danger: in the words of actress Rosamund Pike, we may be relying too much on our partners and husbands to be our entire emotional world.She also appeared as a CIA agent in the pilot of the science fiction series, Seven Days (1998), and as Sarah Beaumont in an episode of the series Foyle's War.but was offered a role as a Bond girl and MI6 agent assigned to aid James Bond in Die Another Day.
