Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Robin: (on show business) When you think about it, our craft is pretty silly. We dress up like other people, we act like other people.

    • Robin: (on playing Starr in "White Oleander") It's scary just because it's the fear of failing, and you HAVE to fail when you act and you HAVE to go over the bar, to come back to what's real.

    • Robin: Famous is celebrityism and I don't want that. I know that I'm not that. Everybody knows who you are, I can't imagine living that life, but I don't think I consider myself famous.

    • Robin: It was never instilled in me of how to play. You know these are the rules and regulations, of how to submerge yourself into a character that's different from yourself. I don't have the tools, so it's more observing and I have always been a good mimic.

    • Robin: I was always drawn to the more provocative stuff. I mean, the rumors were definitely flying. 'She doesn't want to work.' That was the consensus. And it's like, no. I just like to do good work. I like to do work that means something, that I can sink my teeth into. Otherwise, it's not worth being away from my kids.

    • Robin: (on the sudden death of her brother-in-law Chris Penn) It's bizarre, death. Nobody really prepares you for it. Nobody can. And there's waves that come and go. But it's a process of life, definitely, and you can't fight it.

    • Robin: (on their kids having two famous parents) It's a concern in that you don't allow them to delve into that lifestyle and we killed that by moving out of Los Angeles where you're so surrounded by the industry... but they can't become an actor until they're out of the house - that's the rule! It's not allowed.

    • Robin: (on Sean Penn directing her) Experience pays its dues but I think it's so much more enriching having an actor who's a director and that's coming from my experience of working with him. It makes a big difference having the actor who's the director, because they know the system and they know what not to ask.

    • Robin: I loved my role in She's So Lovely, my character was so damaged. I had to wrap my soul around her in order to feel that. I think the audience got her. Understood her? Now, that is a horse of a different color.

    • Robin: I spend a lot of time researching where I want to go next with my characters, so if a role comes to me, and it doesn't quite fit in what I want to be at that time, I will pass.

    Robin Wright (wife of actor Sean Penn) is really a talented actress. In every role she really makes you believe that she actually is the character she's portraying. This sense of realism is what makes her really stand out above the masses of the rest of actresses today. My favorite movie of her's is "Forrest Gump."

    I think that she was kind of cool in some movies like in "Forrest Gump", but apart from that I don't think that I've seen her in many roles, except maybe in The Pledge, but I think that she is cool and she was a very good and great actress. I just hope that she tries to make more movies, for now.
