Aging isn't easy, especially in Hollywood. But "House of Cards"
star Robin Wright is taking a healthy, positive approach to the inevitable.
In a new interview with Town & Country, Wright bristles at the idea
that her aversion to plastic surgery could have prevented her from accepting
roles. Case in point: the actress had her doubts at the time David Fincher,
executive producer of "House of Cards," tapped her for the role
of Claire Underwood three years ago.
"I was sitting there going, 'You're 45, and you're not
gonna get a face-lift,'" she told Town & Country for the
June/July cover story. "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!' "
Yes, one day she's going to have wrinkles, but, refusing to go under
the knife, Wright hasn't written off the wonders of Botox. "It’s
just the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year. I think most women do
10 units, but that freezes the face and you can’t move it. This
is just one unit, and it’s just sprinkled here and there to take
the edge off," she told The Telegraph in February.
