“I don’t want to do that. I’m going to get older. I’m going to have wrinkles.” That’s Robin Wright’s response to Hollywood’s pressures to “lift that face and pump those lips and hike those boobs!” according to her recent interview with Mary Kaye Schilling in Town&Country.

Robin has been in some films I’ve loved – The Princess Bride, Forrest Gump, Message in a Bottle, White Oleander, A Home at the End of the World, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and more. Most recently Golden Globe winner Wright and Kevin Spacey drew me into Netflix’s House of Cards so deeply I was waiting for season two like I wait for the yearly release of Harlan Coben’s newest book.
