I’ve never really paid much attention to Robin Wright, but then I started watching House of Cards and I was like, damn, b. That’s one sexy lady. I love her as Claire and can’t imagine anyone else in the role, which requires so much cool self-assuredness and fire in a way that she embodies so perfect. Basically, she’s amazing.
Turns out, Robin was worried before taking on the role as Claire Underwood that she might be forced to undergo plastic surgery for the role – something she really, really didn’t want to do.
From Town & Country:
When Fincher pitched House of Cards, “I was sitting there going, ‘You’re 45, and you’re not gonna get a face-lift,’ ” she says. “And I was really considering that stuff, because in Hollywood the pressure’s there. You better lift that face and pump those lips and hike those boobs! And I was like, ‘I don’t want to do that. I’m going to get older. I’m going to have wrinkles!’ “
For the record, Robin has said that she does get a tiny bit of Botox twice a year, but I think she looks fantastic. It’s not too overdone, she can still emote, etc. She’s a great actress and it’s a great interview that’s worth reading. She seems so charming!
