Robin Wright Career

Wright began her career as a model, when she was 14. At the age of 18, she played Kelly Capwell in the NBC Daytime soap opera Santa Barbara, for which she received several Daytime Emmy Award nominations.

Wright transitioned into feature film work with a role in Hollywood Vice Squad in 1986, followed by her breakthrough role as Princess Buttercup in the cult film The Princess Bride in 1987. She gained critical acclaim in her role as Jenny Curran in Forrest Gump (1994), receiving Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations for Best Supporting Actress.

In 1996, she starred in the lead role of the film adaptation of Daniel Defoe's Moll Flanders (1996), for which she received a Satellite Award nomination for Best Actress in a Drama. She was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress for her role in She's So Lovely (1997), a film in which she co-starred with her then-husband Sean Penn. Wright received her third Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for her role in the television film Empire Falls (2005).

Since 2013, Wright has appeared in the Netflix political drama streaming television series House of Cards in the role of Claire Underwood, the ruthless wife of political mastermind Frank Underwood. On January 12, 2014, she won a Golden Globe for the role, becoming the first actress to win the award for a streaming television series; she was nominated for the same award the following year. She also received nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award in 2013 and 2014 for the same role. Following Season 4 in 2016, Wright stated that she felt Claire Underwood was the equal of Frank Underwood and demanded equal pay for her performance as her co-star Kevin Spacey; Netflix acquiesced. In 2017, for her performance in the fifth season, Wright was nominated for her fifth consecutive Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. For the years 2014, 2016, and 2017, Wright received Best Actress in a Drama Series nominations for the Critics' Choice Television Awards, with her being the only nomination for the show in December 2017.

In October 2017, she was set as the show's new lead for the final season, following the firing of Kevin Spacey due to sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey. For her last appearance as Underwood, her performance was acclaimed - described as a "commanding performance [that] is more than enough to keep [the final season] standing strong" - earning her her final nominations for the role at the Screen Actors Guild and Primetime Emmy Awards in 2019. For the latter, she became one of seven women to be nominated for the category six or more times for the same show (the first in 10 years since Mariska Hargitay for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).

In 2017, Wright played General Antiope in Wonder Woman (2017) and its 2020 sequel alongside Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. She appears in the Blade Runner sequel Blade Runner 2049 alongside Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, and Jared Leto.

In April 2019, it was announced that she would make her feature film directorial debut in the film Land. Wright would also be starring as its lead, Edee Mathis, a lawyer who retreats in grief to the Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming. Sales for the film would start at Cannes the following month. Filming began by October that year and the movie was picked up by distributor Focus Features.

Recently, Wright directed the final two episodes of the first part of season 4 of the Netflix show, Ozark. The final two episodes are entitled "Sangre Sobre Todo" and "Sanctified".

In April 2022, Wright joined the cast of Netflix's fantasy film Damsel directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.


Woman, 23, shocked to find $800 shirt that looks identical to one worn by Robin Wright in iconic film Forrest Gump on sale at Goodwill for just $6, October 25, 2023
A woman has discovered that a $6 top that she found at a thrift shop 'goes for $800 plus online.' Brailee Banbury found the gold, sparkly piece of clothing while walking around a Goodwill store and documented it in a video. The 23-year-old has an eye for vintage and often resells items on Depop after recognizing their potential. The Texas native shared a video of her find on TikTok and the clip has gained more than 5.2 million views, with many noticing that the top resembles the one that Jenny wears in the iconic movie Forrest Gump.

JAMES MACMANUS: I've dedicated my new book to a beautiful French lover I knew for months in 1974. My wife's not happy - but Marie-Aude's heartbroken fury as she hurled wine at me and fled from my life has haunted me for 50 years, September 19, 2023
JAMES MACMANUS: A spring time affair in Paris should be enshrined in memory, sacrosanct from the trembling hand of time. That first kiss in a Renault cab under rear-view mirror eyes, the hip-hugging walks along the Seine, the throat-clutching glass of Pernod, all the makings of a cinematic cliche, they cannot surely become blurred with age? And they aren't. Everything else about those weeks in Paris in 1974 remains in my mind as if yesterday. A memory etched more deeply and more painfully than most is that of Marie-Aude. An introduction from a fellow journalist in a bar on the Rue de Berri off the Champs-Elysée, a handshake offered with that gracious word enchantée, a glance from grey-green almond eyes, a few words and then she was gone. She had to go back to the office. 'Désolé,' she said. She was beautiful. A pale oval face framed by brown hair that fell to her shoulders in curls, a figure that complimented the dress sense seemingly possessed by all French women (another cliche but definitely true). She worked as a secretary for a big British company in Paris and thus spoke much better English than my passable schoolboy French. And so it began.

Sean Penn & Ex-Wife Robin Wright Seen Arriving In New York Together!, May 30, 2017

Something is definitely going on between Sean Penn and ex-wife Robin Wright! Nearly seven years following their divorce and over 20 since their wedding, the two were spotted at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York on Tuesday, with the actor walking their bags to a car. Hmm. Inneresting! Related: Kit Harington Wants Sean To “Fuck Off” It sounds like these two stars have put their dramatic past behind them, which we’re sure is happy news for their two kids, Dylan, 26, and Hopper, 23. But could the former flames be doing more than reconciling their relationship as they both happen to be single after previously calling off engagements?? Guess we’ll have to wait and see! Thoughts??
