Robin Wright Talks Ex Husband Sean Penn, Fiance Ben Foster with 'Vanity Fair'

Robin Wright is glowing on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s April 2015 issue, on newsstands March 12.

Here’s what the 48-year-old House of Cards actress had to share with the mag:

On her ex husband Sean Penn: “I’m not in the business of talking about what ‘isn’t.’…I grew up very fast as a young girl, but I grew slowly into my womanhood. We were learning as we were going along. We agreed as parents that we’d not work at the same time, so that one of us was always with the kids. He was making more money than I was at the time, so it was a simple decision: ‘You go work—I’ll stay with the kids.’ And we got along great as creative people. Acting together, him directing me [in The Crossing Guard in 1995]—that was great. I believe we were together not only to have our beautiful children but to learn how to love…for the next time around, the right way. And then, what I’m looking for in people now, is kindness.”

On her fiance Ben Foster: “I’ve never been happier in my life than I am today. Perhaps it’s not ladylike [to say], but I’ve never laughed more, read more, or come more than with Ben. He inspires me to be the best of myself. There’s so much to learn. It’s endless. How great! It took me a long time to grow up. Love is possible as life is possible.”

On stardom coming late for her: “I feel as though I’ve just graduated. I mean, I never went to college. I was pregnant at 23. You hear people say how they have ‘arrived,’ but it was just always there, waiting to come out. For me, it just took a long time. I’m 48. I’m finally a person. I think I’m finally ready.”

    Class act! to speak of her ex-husband in such a classy and respectable manner speaks highly of her. As opposed to him and how rude he was during his Oscar acceptance speech by not even having the courtesy to acknowledge her and his latest comments. Congrats to her and her much deserved success.

    She is a example of what a real self made mature women is all about. Real women always remain classy no matter what happens.
