Pike's anger over Wright wedding claims
Actress Rosamund Pike has angrily dismissed suggestions moviemaker Joe Wright called off their wedding because she turned into a "bridezilla", insisting she never had any plans for a "fairytale" ceremony.
The couple, together for four years, became engaged in 2008 and planned to marry last summer (09) - but the Atonement director dumped his partner just weeks before they were due to walk down the aisle.
Pike has previously insisted she had no idea why Wright terminated their relationship so suddenly - and she's angry about speculation it was down to her bride-to-be behaviour.
She tells The Times, "All this stuff about organising flowers and cakes! It's like, no way. The truth is that I hadn't even tried on a f**king wedding dress.
"When you're an actress you've so many chances to do the fairytale thing. For me it wasn't about the wedding at all, it was about the marriage. I was really interested in marriage, and what it means, and what one promises. I take that very seriously.
"Naturally I'd rather not be thought of as Bridezilla, but apart from that I care less and less about what people think."
