Robin Wright Admits to Botox and Devastating Divorce Experience

“House of Cards” star Robin Wright recently shared how devastating her divorce was with ex-husband Sean Penn.

In a very transparent interview with The Telegraph, the 47-year-old actress expressed why it was so hard for her to move on from the marriage, one reason being her children.

“One of the reasons why we got back together and broke up so much was trying to keep the family together… and we did that for a long time,” she said. “Sean sees the kids. They see him. They see me. We’ve all got our own lives.”

However, Wright has now moved past the upsetting experience with a newfound personality, and it shows all too well with new fiancé Ben Foster.

The two lovebirds first met in 2011 on the set of “Rampart,” which 33-year-old Foster produced and Wright starred.

During the interview, Wright fondly remembered her first date with Foster.

“I’d never, ever been asked out on a date before,” Wright explained. “Never. I was frickin’ married my whole life, and even before that I hadn’t been asked out.” (image)

After two years of dating, Wright said that Foster surprisingly popped the question, one that she referred to as a “surreal” experience.

Yet, it appears that the pair has already tied the knot in a way with their matching tattoos.

Located on Wright’s left hand is the initial “B,” and of course it stands for Ben.

“Ben has a ‘R’ tattoo in the same place,” she explained to The Telegraph. “I’ve been so anti-tattoos my whole life. But doing this felt right because we’re not that traditional.”

Well, one thing Wright seems not so traditional about is embracing a few wrinkles here and there.

She confessed how she enjoys getting Botox at least twice a year.

“Everybody f**king does it…Perhaps it’s not wise to put that in a magazine? But I ain’t hiding anything.”

Along with a new attitude and a successful love life, the former “Forrest Gump” actress is also really focused on taking her career to a whole new level of confidence.

“I used to lie in wait and hope to see what roles would come in,” she said. “But my new ambition is to go out and find what I want. I also want to direct more. I totally have the bug now.”

    Sorry, but I have to be a grammar freak here, because if you work as a writer that means you should know better — you wrote "The two lovebirds first met in 2011 on the set of “Rampart,” in which Foster, 33, produced and Wright starred in." Nope: you have two better choices — the first of which is actually correct, and the second of which is commonly accepted: You can say " … the set of 'Rampart,' which Foster, 33, produced, and in which Wright starred" OR "…the set of 'Rampart,' which Foster, 33, produced, and which Wright starred in…" Just sayin'. Proofread before publishing, writers….

      absolutely correct!

      Hopefully, this "passionate freelance writer" Jasmine Allen is "passionate" enough to take some journalistic and writing classes. If not, she won't last long, there are thousands more where she came from.

      • Bradon Nave

        I highly doubt one simple mistake is enough to discredit her
        entire career, or warrant her taking additional training. I would hate to be a writer in a sea of
        vultures that have nothing better to do than criticize and pick apart. Try motivating once in a while…

        • Pat Rice

          I agree.

    • Bradon Nave

      wow. so glad you caught that. if not for your expertise, this journalist wouldn’t have been able to relay
      the message behind her article. Spot-on,
      Picky but Right! Way to go, you champion!

      • Francesco Calitri

        @Bradon Nave: You're correct one simple mistake should not discredit her carreer; however, multiple mistakes might. Therefore, without "a sea of vultures," who nitpick her grammatical mistakes, she might just undermine her career, and deservedly so.

        After all, her job is journalism, and the tools for that trade are words and clarity; there should be no excuses for careless mistakes.

        • Bradon Nave

          Well I'm certainly enthused to learn of such dedicated and passionate individuals. The literary community is in great hands with people like you patrolling! Get'em girl!!!

    • Dot

      Grammar freak here! One should never end a sentence with a preposition! Your second suggestion should read…the set of 'Rampart," which Foster, 33, produced and, in which, Wright starred…" Just sayin'.

    • Jadzeia

      Actually, your own sentence is incorrect. You wrote:

      "Sorry, but I have to be a grammar freak here, because if you work as a writer that means you should know better — you wrote…"

      You should have written it this way:

      "Sorry, but I have to a grammar freak here because, if you work as a writer, that means that you should know better. You wrote,"

      Basically, you should have put the commas after because and after writer. Although you were using the hyphens to be emphatic, you would have done better to make "you wrote" into a new sentence and use a comma or colon after the second word, as that is what one does when quoting someone.


  • Mirae

    A good actress and a beauty, but her current short hair style doesn't do her justice.

  • IHateFatChicks

    The age difference will be the death of the their relationship. It's only a matter of time.

    • Guest

      Is that what the voices in your head told you? They seem to say a lot of weird stuff, that you then go out and post on the Internet.

      • IHateFatChicks

        No, it's just a practical, pragmatic response, you half-wit. She's 17-18 years older than he is. Game over. :) Obviously, Michelle, you're a fat, older woman who's angry at men and really don't understand how this works. Lol I suggest you focus on losing weight and aging gracefully, granny.

        • Aunt Tasty

          I love people who call strangers half-wits! You're reallllly sexy!


          • Michelle Burnett

            I know Aunt Tasty, guys who use the handle IHateFatChicks and post weird stuff all over the Internet are SO HOT, dontcha think? COME AND GET SOME FROM GRANNY HONEY

          • IHateFatChicks

            It doesn't take much to please a pig like you, does it? :)

          • ILoveIHateFatChicks

            OOOH YEAH that is the hottest thing yet that you have said! SO AWESOME…SAY SOME MORE HOT, RIDICULOUS THINGS…

          • IHateFatChicks

            You're barren and fat. Why would I. Lol

          • IHateFatChicks

            You're picture speaks volumes. So, how is that GPS phone map app that identifies all the buffet and delivery fast food restaurants working out for you. Seems to be a success judging by how fat you are. :) Honey, I suggest you focus on losing that unsightly lard otherwise someone will connect a milk machine to those "breasts" that hang to your knees. Lol

          • Aunt Tasty

            You're totally turning me on, baby! Keep it up! (If you can!)

          • IHateFatChicks

            Any guys who shows up with a bucket of chicken and a dozen donuts has found his way to your cholesterol ridden fat heart. :)

          • Aunt Tasty

            You know me now, baby!

          • IHateFatChicks

            A "glamour shot" of you consists of: the biggest tent Lane Bryant sells, makeup being thrown on your fat face from 3 feet away, someone using a metal grinder on those hooves you call feet to remove callouses and corns and you ugly mug surrounded by empty pizza boxes, chicken wings, donuts and hot pockets.

          • Aunt Tasty

            Oh MUCH better. So creative!

          • IHateFatChicks

            Tasty, you realize how much work it took you to become such a fat pig, don’t you? What’s it like not being able to wipe yourself and be forced to wash with a rag on a stick?

          • ILoveIHateFatChicks

            OMG. Aunt Tasty better BACK OFF because this REAL MAN is ALL MINE!! I am SO SUPER HOT right now…Aunt Tasty, stay away from my mans! I will totally cut you!

          • IHateFatChicks

            Look, it's fat ghetto trash. Good to know.

          • Aunt Tasty

            Come ON, you can do better than that, can't you?

    • ugly

      hey you sound like a really hot dude with lots going on.. NOT

      • IHateFatChicks

        You're the fat chick at 2 am who goes home alone. How is it washing with a rag on a stick and unable to see your stinky, unwashed vagina. :)

  • bh

    Tattoos are a bad idea.

  • joeymegatron

    She must have been the only person in the universe that didn't know, before she hooked up with Sean Penn, that Sean Penn is a psychotic.

  • J F

    You're much better off, honey …. that Sean Penn is a looney toon .. I don't know what Charlize Theron is thinking but he's a losing bet not matter how you slice it.

  • Ramona

    Penn had done good work in Haiti but he is a very weird and angry man

  • MJB

    Anybody stupid enough to marry a nut case like Penn and then take up with some guy 14 years younger needs Botox injected into her brain.

  • mxmikol

    The woman seems happy in her own skin, has the love of an exciting guy and is ready for some exploration. She is certainly mature enough to not give much credence to – or give a fig about – comments about her current relationship or previous one. Life is good, just don't give in to the internet trolls!

  • Trying it from the other side

    For the pseudo-grammatical wizards, sentences should not end with a preposition. Also, it should read, "in which the 33 year old Foster produced and Wright performed." Just saying drop all of the commas. I find many people try to sound so correct in an incorrect way.

  • Elle Allonz

    Robin Wright is one ugly bitch. Looks like part man, part smoked meat.
