Rosamund Pike's backstage breastfeeding business

Rosamund Pike has been one of the first to arrive at this year’s awards ceremonies so she can go and express her breast milk.

The British actress made a stunning return to the red carpet at the Golden Globes last month just five weeks after giving birth to her second son. She’s also attended the BAFTAs and Screen Actors Guild Awards after being nominated for her role in Gone Girl. And during a chat with Ellen DeGeneres, the 36-year-old opened up about juggling her professional duties at such events with being a new mum who needs to cater to intimate tasks.

'I’m the sort of really uncool one who shows up very early for carpet'

“It’s a whole operation,” she explained. “It’s kind of like it’s a funny kind of rock and roll. I do the red carpet. I get there really early. I’m the sort of really uncool one who shows up very early for carpet. First off, I’ve never been early for anything in my life, right. And then I disappear off and I set up a sort of station backstage somewhere.”

Rosamund already has two-year-old son Solo with partner Robie Uniacke. With plenty of breastfeeding experience under her belt, the blonde beauty turns up at the star-studded events well prepared for the job in hand.

“It started off very organised, y'know I’d bring a robe and I’d bring all the kind of gear and I’d change into slippers,” she added.

But her best laid plans came unstuck at the BAFTAs, after her robe wouldn’t fasten up properly backstage. So Rosamund took refuge in the chairman of the London Royal Opera House’s office, with comical results.

“[I] just tried to put on the robe and it just wasn’t... I couldn’t do the buttons, and whipped it off.

“And I was just sitting there butt naked with the double breast pump. And if this guy had seen the kind of scene in his office, it was as underhand as if we’d been taking drugs or something. But it was the most innocent, pure kind of...” she trailed off with a laugh.
