    In the interview for the magazine, the 35-year-old actress told that Gone Girl's director, David Fincher, encouraged her to base her character (Amy Dunne) on the late Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. She prepared a lot to get the aloof quality of the wife of John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. on the big screen.

    Fincher told Vanity Fair, "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."

    Rosamund revealed, "I ordered old copies of the Vanity Fair in which she appeared on the cover. I scoured the Internet for any footage of her or, even better, any interviews or recordings which captured her voice. ' And I realised that David had basically given me a cipher to study. There are countless photographs of Bessette...but I could find nothing of her in her own words. And I thought, Well, maybe that's fine. Amy, as she wants to be seen, should be created from outside in."

    Bessette-Kennedy, her husband and sister died in a plane crash in 1999.
