The 42-year-old actress recently took home a Golden Globe award for her performance in ‘I Care a Lot’, and has confirmed she has a unique way of storing her accolades which involves burying them in amongst her flowers with just “a little bit showing up” above the soil.

During an appearance on ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’, Ellen asked Rosamund if a rumour about her award habit was true, and the actress said: “I find it an uneasy thing to display any award in your home. How do people interact with them when they come home? I think it’s awkward so I bury them in the garden with a little bit showing up so you can have a glimpse of a hand or maybe a crown or the globe maybe.

“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 think they’ve found buried treasure.

“They’re probably centuries ahead and won’t even have [the awards] anymore.”

Rosamund also revealed she celebrated her Golden Globes win in a “ghostly” hotel in Prague, Czechia.

She added: “It was 3:30am when I won, I was in a ghostly hotel where I checked in where I rented a room so that I would be away from my children in the morning. I said when I checked in ‘How many guests do you have?’ And they said ‘You are the only one.’

“Because you can’t be in a hotel here for pleasure, only for business [during the pandemic]. I wouldn’t be allowed to check in for a romantic night but I would be allowed to check in to potentially win a Golden Globe.

“Once I won maybe I was supposed to leave because the pleasure kicked in.”
