Rosamund Pike Says She Buries Awards in Her Garden | Video
Rosamund Pike doesn’t display her many accolades on a trophy shelf or in her living room for guests to see — that’s just too ordinary. She actually hides her awards outside . . . in her garden. “I just find it an uneasy thing to display any award in your home because how do people interact with them when they come home?” the actress said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on March 10. “Do they say, ‘Oh wow, look, those are your awards?’ I think it’s awkward, so I bury it in the garden, with a little bit showing up so you can have an enticing glimpse of a hand or the globe maybe.”
Now, I don’t have any Globes or Emmys, so my opinion is probably irrelevant, but I would personally find seeing an “enticing glimpse of a hand” in someone’s backyard more troubling than any display of awards in the home. But that’s just me! Rosamund, who took home a Globe a few weeks ago for her performance in I Care a Lot, continued, “I think it’s amusing because in the future, when I’m dead and gone or when somebody else buys the house, they’ll be landscaping and they’ll hit metal. They’ll think they found buried treasure and they’ll have in fact found a host of awards . . . I suppose they’ll probably be centuries ahead and they won’t even have [award shows] anymore so they’ll be relics.” She says “amusing,” I say it might be a little strange. Anyone else thinking this sounds like something straight out of Gone Girl? Watch the clip above to see Rosamund explain the unusual way she stores her many honors.
