Robin Wright’s Approach to Aging in Hollywood

robin-wright-house-of-cards

Robin Wright is someone who has always done Hollywood her own way. In the June/July issue of Town & Country, the 48-year-old actress explained why she forged her own path versus following a stereotypical starlet career.

She said, “Hollywood is difficult to navigate if you have integrity. So I opted not to work if there wasn’t enough to do in a role, which doesn’t have to do with the role’s size. If there’s nothing for me to do as an actress, that’s frustrating…I’d rather go work at a menial labor job, where I can actually get my hands dirty.”

Wright almost passed on Netflix’s original series, House of Cards, but it was producer David Fincher who convinced her to take the role.

“David assured me that this would be a collaboration, that I could help create the character as we went along, that we would make discoveries together,” she shared.

The Netflix star also took on the challenge of directing the 10th episode this season. It intrigued her enough that she stated, “I honestly don’t want to act anymore.”

Wright also rebels agains Hollywood’s notion that youth is king even though there is pressure to go under the knife.

She summed up, “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.”

A refreshing approach to Tinseltown.
