Robin Wright: Ben Foster Was the First Guy to Take Me On a Date
Here’s what the 47-year-old House of Cards star had to share with the mag:
On her relationship with fiance Ben Foster: “Can I tell you something? That was the first date I had ever been on in my life. I had never been on a real date.”
On House of Cards season two: “Just wait. What we have in store for you guys… In [House of Cards Executive Producer] David Fincher’s words, “You will be tied and skinned.” We’re sworn to secrecy!”
On playing Claire in the hit series: “The only note that David Fincher ever gave me when we started the show was to be still. People were suggesting to base the character on Hillary Clinton or other strong women personas, and I didn’t want to do that. When we shot the first couple of scenes, David would come over to me and say, “Don’t move. Don’t move. Claire is a bust.” Now when I have the Claire clothes, the Claire hair, and say the Claire words, it just clicks. I’m completely and totally still [except with Kevin]. We’re so goofy. In between takes, we’re very goofy. We giggle a lot.”
