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.
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!
Robin Wright, who kills it on House ofCards is engaged to Ben Foster, who just kind of exists. The couple have a 13 year age difference between them — Wright is 47, Foster is 33. They’ve together for about 2 years.
In fact, Kate Mara is so hot that ever since I saw her in Brokeback Mountain, she makes me want to do things to her. Nice things. Yes, I have girl-crushes, and yes, I have affinity for redheads. Deal with it.
But this isn’t about me, and certainly not about the way Kate Mara’s lips make me feel. This is about the fact that she is so much more… full of life than her sister Rooney. Kate Mara stars in Netflix’s new remix of the British miniseries House of Cards along with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, and I know I’m going to be watching it because the reviews are so flattering. The show is directed by David Fincher, who was responsible for some of the greatest movies ever (Se7en, Fight Club), and for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, where the ‘Mara connection’ comes from, I suppose. Here’s the trailer for your viewing pleasure:
