Personal Quote:

[on the character of Amy Dunne in Gone Girl (2014)] In my head I saw her as Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. I had these images of before and after - of Carolyn as an 18-year-old and as a 20-year-old, the notion of someone self-made. She crafted herself, she re-invented herself, and invented that persona. That's where I began. See more »
