Robin Wright on Being Called a Cougar: 'I Don't Read Anything About Myself!'

Robin Wright on Being Called a Cougar: 'I Don't Read Anything About Myself!'

Robin Wright and her fiance Ben Foster bundle up for their brunch together on Sunday afternoon (February 2) in Vancouver, Canada.

The 47-year-old actress recently responded to gossip that she’s a cougar – her love Ben is 33-years-old.

“Am I?” Robin asked when her Details magazine interviewer told her she’s referred to as a cougar. “You know, I deliberately don’t read anything about myself for that reason.”

She was also asked if she liked her Princess Bride character or her House of Cards character more.

“My instinct is to say Claire, but you never know, right? We’ve seen a lot of young girls in Hollywood turn into beasts,” Robin said.

    They look so happy together. Why mention the age and the cougar thing? If it were a 47 year old man with a 33 year old woman they wouldn’t even mention it. Look at Penn and Theron, their age difference is even bigger and nobody mention it. Robin and Ben look the same age, they’re make a great couple! Best to them!

    Justjared at leaf read the articles to report: She wasn’t asked if she preferred the role of Princess Bride, Details asked what character would win a fight Buttercup or Claire?

    Ben Foster is hot hot hot! A very masculine virile guy, can’t wait to see him as Lance Armstrong! And Robin is ice chill b-i-t-c-h-i-e as Claire Underwood! Golden Globe well deserved!

    Can’t wait to season 2 House of cards! And can’t wait to see Robin more in movies, but I guess that filming a success show consumes most part of the year. But I love every single of her performances in movies, great actress!

    @billy_nanny: If you’re a fan of House of cards don’t miss the director’s commentary of Season 1: is amazing get to know how this show was made: Fincher filmed it like a 13 hour movie, it’s not TV. And if you’re a fan of Robin Wright Fincher talks very fondly about her. Practically every director praises her not only for her amazon talent but also for her beauty and elegance

    It’s clear how Robin doesn’t give a damn about fashion and I love her for that. She’s not like other stars who dress up to go to the grocery store, knowing the paps will be there, maybe hoping they’ll be there, maybe calling them. And the you remember Robin in a gown like the one she wore at the golden globes and you think that only a naturally stunning beauty like she is can give a damn about fashion. Great talented and elegant woman, great body and a real character actress!

    @tupeca_boy: You bet! I remember Robin at the Golden Globes, what a killer body! I would sell my soul to the devil to have those arms and shoulders, damn it. She must be doing Pilates or Yoga, that’s a very well trained body. And a healthy living style, sure. And leaving that ugly d*ck penn. LOL

    sissy566 Says:

    @Texprex: I’m a huge HoC fan and I literally binged the director’s commentary, it’s amazing! At one point Fincher describes Robin Wright as “completely playful, and absolutely authoritarian!” and being Fincher a very well know intimidating director it gives you the idea that Robin personality must be pretty strong! Good for her, that’s how I like my favorites actresses!

    Robin honey don’t you worry of being called a cougar, there’s nothing wrong, it’s just labels that this misogynist world put on women who have the courage to rebel to the stupid rule that men can do anything and women can’t. And with a body and a face like yours and a hot cutie like your fiancé I bet you don’t give a damn what people say. Go girl.

    she’s incredibly sexy on House of Cards and she looked amazing at the Golden Globes…jaw dropping. She could definitely date a 33 year old guy…killer body Yay! Ben Foster is a lucky guy!!

    She scares me to death on House of cards, she’s absolutely terrifying. Great performance! She could start a new career as evil characters in movies and would be incredibly efficient, I’m sure. Kinda a new Sharon Stone icy b*tch but with real act skills, because Robin actually can act.

    Ben Foster in this photos gives me the vibe of Michael Fassbender with that gingery bread of his. He’s very macho type. A real upgrade from orange dic* face Penn.

    What are they filming in Vancouver? Robin is amazing in House of Cards, but I can’t wait for her to come back to movies, she a phenomenal actress!

    why can’t an accomplished and mature woman have some fun without being labeled? She took a lot of sh#t from her ugly ex. Let her be!

    Kitty Says:

    Mature? she’s about the same age as Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock. None of these women are being called “mature”. Just when one of them is dating a younger guy then, yes, she’s being labeled as “mature”. She doesn’t even look 47. she has a better body and skin than any 20 something starlet. look at the Golden Globes. Margot Robbie, whatever her name is, is like 23 yo. and looks like a 35 yo. playmate. All the other 20 something girls flaunted flabby physiques and tired facial skin.

    I saw them having brunch at manhattan last year. They looked totally in love. The guy is head over heels for her, he looked at her like totally infatuated. I wanted to take a picture of her and ask for an autograph but I didn’t had the courage to interrupt them. She had no make up at all and her skin was flawless, she’s very very skinny.
