Robin Wright is hot, right? Like, we can all agree on that? House of Cards is great, but Robin as Claire Underwood is like, 80% of that greatness. Admittedly, I don’t know too much about her in “real life”, but she does seem pretty decent – intelligent, thoughtful and she actually has self-respect. How do I know? Well, despite the fact that her ex-husband Sean Penn is happy to be an asshole about her in public, Robin won’t speak about their relationship.
From Vanity Fair:
“I’m not in the business of talking about what ‘isn’t.’ My eyes are set forward and I’ve never been happier. I have too much respect for Sean and our two extraordinary children to sell our past joys and woes for public consumption and fodder. I believe we were together not only to have our beautiful children but to learn how to love … for the next time around, the right way. And then, what I’m looking for in people now is kindness.”
Good for her. That’s how a mature adult would handle things, anyway.
Here are a few other excerpts from her cover story.
On her relationship and life with Ben Foster:
“I’ve never been happier in my life than I am today. Perhaps it’s not ladylike [to say], but I’ve never laughed more, read more, or come more than with Ben. He inspires me to be the best of myself. There’s so much to learn. It’s endless. How great! It took me a long time to grow up. Love is possible as life is possible.”
On Claire Underwood’s hair:
“I was just cutting off damaged hair—too much bleach over months of [appearing in] different movies. It was a mercy killing, but it works for the character.”
On gaining stardom late in life:
“I feel as though I’ve just graduated. I mean, I never went to college. I was pregnant at 23. You hear people say how they have ‘arrived,’ but it was just always there, waiting to come out. For me, it just took a long time. I’m 48. I’m finally a person. I think I’m finally ready.”
Yep, love her.
