Rosamund Pike: Actor son would be exciting

Rosamund Pike would only want her son to try acting if he was any good at it.

The actress has 14-month-old son Solo with her boyfriend Robie Uniacke.

Having been a Bond girl in 2002 and starred in films such as Jack Reacher and The World's End, Rosamund would have no qualms should Solo want to emulate her success.

"I'd be delighted if it's what he wants to be, if he is good," she smiled to British magazine OK!

"But it's hard to be in this profession and if it's what you really want to do and you're not good enough, then that's really tough."

The 34-year-old first rose to fame when she played Miranda Frost in 007 flick Die Another Day.

Rosamund believes she has really come into her own since having Solo.

"It's funny, because every actor is a perfectionist," she admitted.

"Everyone wants to be great at their profession and there are times when I'd feel that I didn't do my best and I'd beat myself up and agonise about it. But now, since having Solo, I think, 'Oh yeah, I might have missed that.' But I forget about it and it's liberating."

Rosamund and Robie have been dating since 2009 and the star hinted a wedding is on its way.

"I do believe in marriage but I just knew I wanted to be a mother first," she smiled.
