Pike stars as Clara in the romantic comedy directed by Peter Chelsom and based on the novel by Francois Lelord. Clara’s boyfriend, Hector, travels across the world to seek happiness, and realizes that it is only with Clara that he will find what he is looking for. Co-starring Simon Pegg.
I really liked it. I knew it wouldn’t be a major commitment for me—the Clara portion is contained. I felt that it was the sort of thing that whenever it was ready to go, I could fit it in. Simon and I did know about this when we went into The World’s End. We sort of said, “The next six months, we’ll get to work together.” Which is great. And we have this very easy, very joyous friendship. It’s really nice.
