Robin Wright: Hollywood is hard if you have integrity


Speaking to Town and Country magazine, Robin Wright reveals why she didn’t take ”wife and arm candy” roles, which would have boosted her career, and chose to focus on her family while waiting for the right project.

The actress says that Hollywood can be tough for a woman with integrity.

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.”

Robin took a long break from acting, but now she realizes her decision had consequences.


“In a sense it hurts, because you’re like, ‘I want to play too! I just don’t want to play that way,'” she explains. “I’m not up there with Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts. I don’t sell tickets. I’ve known that for a long time.”

The 48-year-old actress also admits she considered plastic surgery at some point.

She said: “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!’ “

    Too bad to hear that Hollywood is so negative on people with real integrity. What Hollywood does is showing off fake boobs, lips, hair, almost dying (anorexic) women and not always the best talents. It has come to the point where earning money and fame as become a priority, instead of becoming a better actor or actress and do your best to people like your acting on screen. I am very sad that such a decay is happening in Hollywood and not only.
