Robin Wright does ‘sprinkles’ of Botox: ‘You bet. Everybody f—king does it.’

wenn21055182

Robin Wright gave an enchanting interview to The Telegraph. I’m surprised. I don’t necessarily think of Robin as a dour person, but she just never seemed like the type to gush about a new love or… like, have fun. She always seems so serious. But maybe that was Sean Penn’s influence. Because nowadays, there’s a whole new Robin and she’s banging a hot young guy (Ben Foster) and she gushes about him in interviews and she just sounds really cool. You can read the whole Telegraph piece here – she talks about tattoos, love, dating, self-confidence and BOTOX. Some highlights:

Winning a Golden Globe: “I am still in shock. No, really. I didn’t prepare a speech, because I truly thought, ‘There’s no f— way. There’s no way I’m going to be up there.’ Even when I heard my name, my first instinct was, ‘They’ve got it wrong.’”

She has a “B” tattoo for Ben Foster: She removes a ring on the third finger of her left hand to reveal a small letter “B” tattooed beneath. “Ben has an ‘R’ tattoo in the same place,” she explains, then laughs. “I’ve been so anti-tattoos my whole life. But doing this felt right because we’re not that traditional.”

Ben’s proposal: It was “such a shock”. She pauses, revelling in the memory. “But we felt married anyway. We’ve been together ever since the first date.”

Her short hair: “I can’t imagine going back to long hair. Cutting it was the greatest thing I ever did.”

Radiating joy: “I think we manifest the very thing we put out. If you’re putting out negativity, then you’re going to retrieve that same sentiment. If you emanate joy, it comes back to you. I don’t think there was much joy coming back to me before, because I wasn’t putting much out.”

Ben asked her out, their first date was at a poetry recital. “I’d never, ever been asked out on a date before. Never. I was frickin’ married my whole life, and even before that I hadn’t been asked out.”

She once said she would never marry again: “Never say never,” she laughs. “Ben and I have a connection between us that just feels right. I don’t know any other word for it.”

Doing House of Cards: “I started out doing daytime TV, and I didn’t want to go back there. I also don’t watch much TV. But television is not what it used to be. The material, most of the time, is better than a lot of film.”

Ambition and self-confidence: “I think I grew up. I’m a late bloomer. I used to lie in wait and hope to see what roles would come in. 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.”

Her divorce from Sean Penn: It was “devastating. Divorce in and of itself, and with children, is devastating. Worse than that. One of the reasons why we got back together and broke up so much was trying to keep the family together. If you’ve got kids, it’s a family, and you try again, and you try again. We did that for a long time, and…” She stops, leaving a long silence hanging in the air. She doesn’t want to say anymore, other than that they have found an accord. “Sean sees the kids. They see him. They see me. We’ve all got our own lives.”

She loves Zumba: “Oh my God, Zumba is the greatest invention ever for women. I like to exercise, though I do nothing consistently because I get bored and impatient. With Zumba, you’re dancing, you’re moving your hips. So much fun.”

She maintains her appearance with “sprinkles”: “You bet. Everybody f— does it. I suppose I can’t say ‘everybody’ because I don’t know for sure, but come on… 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 hesitates. “Perhaps it’s not wise to put that in a magazine? But I ain’t hiding anything.”

[From The Telegraph]

See what I mean? She just seems so much lighter, happier and more fun these days. I guess Ben Foster is great for her. Which is weird, because he always seems like such a Grumpy Gus too. Maybe the sex is just fantastic? Or maybe this is like the lady’s version of the mid-life crisis. Johnny Depp got Amber Heard and a closet full of scarves and Robin Wright got Ben Foster, a Golden Globe, Botox and laughter.

Also: I suspect Robin is getting some fillers in addition to her “sprinkles” of Botox, but I have to give her some credit – she’s not overdoing it.

    #santabarbaraFOREVER

  2. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Whatever she’s done, she looks good–I thought she was all natural.

  3. SonjaMarmeladova says:

    She seems awesome, but I hate when celebrities gush about their personal life so publicly, You never know if it will last. And she should grow her hair out, this isn’t doing her any favours.

  4. Zandy says:

    She is hot, but he is not….!

  5. Green is Good says:

    She rocks that short haircut!

    And Sean Penn is somebody else’s problem now.

  6. emma says:

    Maybe it’s not so much that Ben Foster is good for her, so much as Sean Penn was bad for her.

  7. amanda says:

    I will always bow down to Princess Buttercup. Love her. Love that she seems happy and in a good place. That’s a nice reward for putting up with so many hard years with SP.

  8. JaDeRu says:

    I had my first lady crush when I saw her in The Princess Bride. Been in love with her ever since.

  9. amarie says:

    I loved her in “the Princess Bride’ and ‘Forest Gump’. I am so happy for her! Rock on Robin

  10. Talie says:

    Just started watching House of Cards — LOVE her in it.

  11. Suze says:

    Exactly – they all do it. Preach it Robin. And may your new found happiness last.

  12. laura says:

    One of the greatest actress in hollywood! she has beauty, charisma, intelligence, vulnerability that she is not afraid to show! it is such a unique blend….a personal advice I would love for her to grow back her long hair…

  13. HadleyB says:

    ONE unit? I LOL’d so hard over this. Does she mean her whole face gets one unit or one unit lets say by the eye, another unit under the eye, another unit on the side etc?

    Forehead takes a lot — even with someone with no wrinkles. I have slight eye wrinkles and no forehead wrinkles and to stop my “11″ it takes more than 10 units. And 2x a year? I WISH.

    Oh these celebs kill me .. but I still like her. And if the Secret works for her .. great. I find that doing some of it does work for me as well. I am not rich and famous but for other things it does seem to work or maybe I just make myself happy lol and when I do my “slight” botox I look happy hahaha

    • bondbabe says:

      I had to laugh too! One unit…sprinkled here and there—my ass! My forehead and the “three sisters” between my eyebrows takes 10 units, twice a year.

      Other than that, I do really like her.

    • ncboudicca says:

      Thank God it’s not just me! I get anywhere between 7-10 units, twice a year, and I was wondering how in the h-e-double hockey sticks she makes do with one unit all over her face.

    • sunnymummie says:

      It really depends on the type of skin. I see she has a very pale and delicate white type, it is possible that sparkles work for her. she said that is one unit here and there, which means that maybe she’s doing like 10 units twice a year, I thick it might be true.

      Finally is refreshing to read no bullish*t from stars that thinks that nobody can notice what they’re doing ( for example Julia Roberts)

    • phlyfiremama says:

      Yeah I had to LOL at the 1 unit myself!! Maybe 1 full syringe unit!! ;) That being said, I have had botox twice, and I love it! The first time I got it on my forehead (12 units) and around my crow wrinkles (8 units) and it lasted for about 6 months until I re-upped again. I am now looking for just the right groupon or special to do it again. My lid has been lagging over my right eye for several years~it drove me nuts because I could see it so clearly in pictures, and it made my face look assymetrical so that I was constantly trying to raise my eyebrows by lifting the muscles in my forehead. One of my patients told me that getting GOOD botox was like having a facelift because it lifts those muscles and freezes them in place for a while. So I tried it, and lo and behold it worked. I still do my Acupuncture needles on myself, use high quality skin products (because its my FACE!!), and have had several IPL facials which I bought via groupon, all of which I think have also helped the process. My skin looks fantastic~Oh yeah, and I also wear sunscreen RELIGIOUSLY.

    • Bridget says:

      One unit at a time. And I believe it – she looks great, but she still looks her age. It could also be that she goes in for more appointments, say every 3 months instead of every 6.

    • mayamae says:

      I have no idea if she’s telling the truth, but if every actress refused to answer this question, it would stop being asked. How about a little, “That’s a personal decision every woman makes for herself, therefore I won’t comment on it”.

    • The Wizz says:

      Yeah I doubt the one unit. I’m on 3 units for my 2 angry friends between my eyebrows and I’m a lot younger than her.

    • Jenn says:

      I LOL’d too. So hard I almost choked. I’m her age and I get 70 units every 3 months, my face still moves yet looks smooth. I will say that 30 or so units are cosmetic and the rest are for Migraines/TMJ. She probably gets 10 between the eyes, a bunch “sprinkled” throughout her forehead and 3-5 for crows feet. At least she admits to it.

  14. bns says:

    Something about Ben Foster rubs me the wrong way, but good for her, I guess.

    Also, I’m glad that she didn’t lie about the botox since it’s been obvious for a while that she does it.

  15. dizzylucy says:

    She does look great. I’m glad she’s happy and doing well, she’s talented and seems like a nice person. After difficult years with her ex, glad to see her happy.

  16. Leah says:

    Cant wait for the new season of house of cards. She is an awesome actress!

  17. se says:

    I am so glad she is being honest. Seriously she just won my respect. I’m sure pretty much everyone is doing it. Even the ones that say they regret doing botox are probably doing botox.

  18. Penelope says:

    She looks better with longer hair.

    That said, I’ve always loved her. Glad she’s happy & can’t imagine the hell Sean Penn must have put her through.

  19. Jayna says:

    I am not a huge fan of her shorter hair. It gives her a longer face. But she’s always been a pretty woman, so is still pretty with it. I just like her better witha little bit longer hair and think she looks younger with it. I always enjoy her work, and she was so pretty in Forest Gump. I loved her in that movie.

    Joy Behar won’t get a facelift and other things, but she has always admitted to botox when she started it. Her face moves and everything. She said if they give it right and not overdo it, it can tighten, or maybe lift is the better word, the face in places too. I didn’t believe it had done much until I went back and looked at a picture before she started it, and it really did give her a little refreshening and a little tighter.

  20. roxy750 says:

    She is so my favorite. I absolutely adore her. Who she is, what she is, just love it! Empowering! Fascinating woman!

  21. crazyhorse says:

    I’ve just read an interview to House of Cards costume designer:
    “Q: Where are Claire’s pantsuits and dresses from? Every single one looks amazing.
    “A: That’s because Robin Wright is a genetic freak and has the best body ever. But she works to keep her body that way.”

    I would sell my soul to the devil to look like her at 47!

  22. bobby f. says:

    She’s so freaking HOT in House of Cards, the ultimate sexy ice b*tch. She’s so talented, I would love to see her playing ice cold queen on movies, she would be a perfect villain.

  23. sammy says:

    I saw her around Santa Monica like a month ago, she’s sooooo skinny, but has a great body, tight and toned, and you can certainly see she works out. She made eye contact with me and I almost die: she has the most amazing blue eyes, the kind that freezes you. She was with her kids and some kind of assistant, her kids are beautiful and cool and you can tell by the way the talk to her how much they look up to her. She was kind of b*tchy with one guy, but, maybe because everybody was staring at her, taking pictures.

    • Greg says:

      I remember reading somewhere that she is kind of a cold b*tch, and I love her more for that. That, plus the fact that she systematically turned down commercial sh*t movie roles, and refused to go mainstream, makes me love her and admire her more and more. She’s one of the most talented actress, an between her fellow actors she’s a legend, she turned down millions and photo covers to be taken seriously.

  24. Lynn says:

    Great actress, I’m sure this visibility with House of Cards will pave her way back to big important movie roles, she’s a natural talent and a natural beauty, is beyond be why she hasn’tt won an Oscar yet, she has made enough work Oscar worthy. The botox thing is as she says something everybody does in Hollywood but everybody loves to deny. He’s ballsy to admit it without fear. Hands down.

  25. santa says:

    I find it hard to believe that she wasn’t asked on a date before. C’mon the woman is HOT and has always been since her 20′s.

    There’s a scene in House of cards when her lover takes off her dress: JAW DROPPING. I remember thinking “how on earth this woman is 47!”

  26. lullaby says:

    Great upgrade with Ben Foster. Let Charlize deal with Penn’s old, wrinkled, grey haired and smelly balls.

  27. Greg says:

    Robin rocks the pixie better than anyone. Better than new b***h charlize. Robin she was one of the first to have the courage to go pixie, and it work great with her jawline and head shape. Love her! Super talented actress.

    • FingerBinger says:

      WTF? Why is Charlize a b***h? Robin was with him for a long time isn’t she a b***h too? BTW the pixie has been around for years she didn’t invent it. Mia Farrow and Edie Sedgwick had the pixie long before Robin Wright so let’s not give her too much credit for a haircut FFS.

      • Keyraa says:

        I don’t think Greg used the word b***h as an insult. I think he tried to just sound jokingly ghetto, like I did in my post below, calling Robin that way. Is just a way of saying. About the haircut I do believe Robin was one of the first that rock it, not invited it of course, but started a new comeback of it. I think the first one at all was Michelle Williams. But it is true that there was a big revival of the pixie thanks to Claire Underwood, in fact, my hairstylist in NY told me about people coming at him asking for the “Claire” or the “Robin Wright”

  28. Emily C. says:

    I don’t know anyone who uses Botox. Somehow I think the vast majority of the population on this planet, most of whom are lucky if they can even get a roof over their heads and enough to eat, are injecting themselves with fish poison so that their skin appears frozen. Hollywood people, ugh. So insulated from the rest of the world. And so unable to move the skin on their foreheads.

  29. Jason says:

    She’s so freaking sexy. The epitome of elegance and class. I find her short hair sexier and classier.

  30. Jason says:

    Sean Penn is a d*ck. He tried to find a new Robin in Charlize, they look alike so much. But he will show his real personality when the romance phase will finish, just a couple of months. What an a**. Robin was a keeper you loser. Cry your a** off

  31. Amy says:

    Totally in agreement with her about Zumba. You’re exercising but dancing at the same time and they play a lot of Pitbull. Just recently got into it and it is so much fun.

  32. Mel says:

    I always thought she was one of the most beautiful faces on film EVER.
    Not anymore. Now, she’s barely pretty – and no, it doesn’t have anything (or much) to do with ageing. It must be the Botox, I suppose. That’s the problem with it: it does NOT seem to make you prettier. (Or even look younger, for that matter.)

    As for her “we manifest what we put out there”… Poppycock.
    A person can “radiate” pure heaven, straight from the heart – and still get hell.
    It’s not about the ideology of it – “ideologically” I could not agree more with her.
    It’s LIFE – my own and other’s lives observed – that has taught me otherwise.

    • pressqueen says:

      I disagree. She was and is a one of the most beautiful actresses. Her face has changed, as is natural that happens to everyone, barely pretty is not fair to say, honestly, she’s stunning, on-screen and off-screen, I can guarantee personally, she’s flawless, best cheekbones I’ve ever seen. She wears almost no make up, ever. I think the botox she’s doing lately has taken away the edge she naturally has, being so skinny, I remember seeing her at TIFF 2009 her face was way too bony and edgy. She’s a classic beauty and she will always be. That face is not going anywhere thanks to a great bone structure.

    • mercy says:

      I think she’s gorgeous, and would look even moreso with a hairstyle that was more flattering to her strong jawline, as well as a little extra weight. The cut itself is really cute, though. Any cosmetic work she’s had looks tasteful and well done. I wouldn’t do botox, but easier to say when you’re relatively young and you’re job doesn’t focus on appearance or involve extreme closeups.

      Tend to agree with you on the ‘you get what you put out’ comment. Not everyone and not always. I wish it were true, though. It’s a lovely sentiment.

    • nat says:

      barely pretty? I’m sorry could you make an example of who you’d consider beautiful? because, I don’t want to be polemic or rude, but you got to be blind. I know that the concept of beauty is subjective but there’s an animosity in consider an exceptionally stunning woman like Wright just “barely pretty” It has nothing to do with age? I think that our misogynist culture has been so focused on pairing beauty with youth that the concept is in our veins to the point that like it or not has become one.

      • Mean Hannah says:

        Beauty really is subjective…I don’t find Robin beautiful or pretty, but I do think she is, like Cate Blanchett, very good looking. I call women like that handsome (I don’t mean masculine) – they have great bone structure, some standout features, beautiful skin, hair, etc. but they don’t seem beautiful or pretty to me. As an example, I think Julianne Moore and Angelina Jolie are beautiful. As for pretty, Hollywood is filled with pretty women. I feel like all pretty girls who aren’t tall enough to be models are actresses. They are dime a dozen.

      • nat says:

        Well, this is the demonstration that beauty it is a subject matter: I pair Wright’s beauty with Blanchett’s as an example of absolute classical and timeless beauty, meanwhile Julianne Moore is in my opinion just very pretty and lovely and Angelina Jolie WAS very beautiful and now I can barely look at her, too try hard for my taste.

      • sassyland says:

        It could be subjective but Askmen has just made public their list of the 99 most desirable women 2014 and Robin and her daughter had made it. This is indicative that Robin Wright is not barely pretty for most of people.
        From Askmen: ” Thank you Netflix for reminded us that Robin Wright is one of the hottest women alive. As the impeccably coiffed and power hungry Claire Underwood in House of Cards, Wright is unforgettable with her icy glare, statuesque figure and perfect tailored clothes. With a wife like that, why would Frank Underwood stray?”
        Again, this lists are so subjective and maybe even ridiculous (Amy Poheler desirable? really?) but they are indicative of people, in general think as a collective mind. Robin Wright is NOT barely pretty.

    • mayamae says:

      I think she’s very pretty, but her face used to be so much softer. Whether it’s aging or being so thin, I don’t know. She’s getting to the age where people say you choose your body or you choose your face.

      • kutekitty says:

        I think the angles and the edgy features comes from her excessive thinness. But she’s been always that skinny, except the early Buttercup days, when she way very young almost baby faced. I like angles and I like the way she uses botox. She should keep doing it as long as she feels like herself and tries to avoid the excess. Well done Jenny (for me she will always be Je-nnay) Love and wish you the best to you and Ben, you make a lovely couple)

  33. Kim says:

    I don’t know what’s more beautiful…her face or her honesty. This lady is all class!

  34. mar says:

    she is my eternal woman crush. Ever since Princess Bride.

  35. matt g. says:

    She’s stunning. If you watch House of Cards you will understand the potential Robin Wright has never exploited on red carpets. She’s the ultimate elegant, poised and sexy woman. Bad enough that Robin in real life doesn’t give a crap about fashion, she admitted it. She can do so much with so little. She’s beautiful with no make-up at all. At the Golden Globes had everybody talking about in the room (I was there) because of that tremendous body. She made more than one A-lister at the Hilton turned heads that night, as seen with my own eyes. I think easily we can say that she has one of the five best bodies in Hollywood, all ages included. It is just that she doesn’t over exposes herself and she never has used her good looks to get media attention. Never in 30 years of career.

  36. closetoyou says:

    Ben Foster has big feet… good for Robin. Totally upgrade from leather face/baked ham Penn.
    PS: LOL gray haired balls is a good one too.

  37. Martin Hayes says:

    Both Robin and her daughter Dylan are included in the Askmen 99 most desirable Women 2014. Robin is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood consistently through all her 30 years in the business. Timeless. Botox or not, the important thing is that she has keep her own features. Kudos for the honesty.

  38. lau says:

    Lainey gossip said many times that in Hollywood it was a common knowledge that she and Penn had an open marriage, and that they finally broke up when she had major love affair with a co-star. She felt in love so much, like totally infatuated but then it didn’t went on and eventually tried to work things out with Penn. Hence the scene Penn furious at the Oscar night, not mentioning her in his speech. I totally believe this because it is the only explanation to 20 years together with that piece of s*ht that is Penn. Lainey always say also that she’s very b*tchy, on the reds carpets and interviews she’s rather ice cold and pricky. That’s something that also David Fincher said in some interview, that she’s some kind of authoritarian b*tch, he said it in friendly way, but he said it.

    • sunset-blvd says:

      OMG an open marriage with Penn? That would explain everything! She tolerating his cheating (because she would cheat back), and putting up with his temper and tantrums. I do remember that back in the time Penn was crazy about her, I remember one EW cover when he said that he loved her so much and that she was his anchor. When asked what he would have known in the past that he knows now he answered: my wife Robin. I guess that he was totally in love with her, and somehow he managed to ruin it with his ego and self indulgence. Now he makes me feel pity about his relationship with Theron, he looks so pathetic, like trying to be with her and her son the decent guy he wasn’t with his own family.

  39. Jennifer Bradford says:

    I cannot think of another actress that has managed to remain in people’s heart with such iconic roles as she’s played:
    -Princess Buttercup
    -Jenny Curran
    -and now Claire Underwood. I’m sure that when season 3 of House of Cards will finish in 2015 Claire will be the type of woman that american males would like as a wife and american woman would want to be.

    There has to be a particular quality about Robin Wright’s acting that when she nails a character and gets to be in big productions that guarantee visibility, her performances emanate a sort of magic that makes audiences love her automatically, and even call her with the character’s name. I cannot think of another similar case. Amazing

  40. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    I think she would look exotic and stunning with her head shaved – she ‘s got the right shape and this look would make her eyes stand out even more.

  41. AnnieCL says:

    C’mon, she looks younger than him! Awesome! 😊

  42. Keyraa says:

    She’s scary sexy in House of Cards. B*tch CAN smoke out of a window with class like no other.

  43. Moi says:

    She’s been my girl crush since she was on “Santa Barbara”. Yep. :-) But there is no such thing as someone getting “one” unit of Botox. Doesn’t happen. If someone has ever received one unit of Botox, I would love to hear from you. Just not the way it works. You don’t have to go as high as twenty for wrinkles by any means, but one? No way. Even with a Botox party, just, no. Sorry, I worked for a plastic surgeon for close to 5 years.

    By the way, now one of my accounts are Neurologists. Some patients receive up to 300 units for migraines.

    One unit, lmao

  44. Chiaretta says:

    We love Robin in Italy! she’s such a talented actress, and a bellissima donna! Love love love! Come visit our country, Roma loves you!

  45. MistressMaryQuiteContrary says:

    This last year (i’m 37 in 2 months) I got “baby botox” twice, just between my brows. I furrow my brow a lot, and decided to try to prevent lines from etching in there. I used very few units and it does work well, and I have movement everywhere except just between my brows. It looks very natural, which I was concerned about. I miss furrowing, though. Not sure I’ll get botox again. Probably not. Neato experience, but ultimately not for me. That said, I will totally judge those who freeze up their whole faces in desperate bids to freeze time. Like kim k.
