Robin Gayle Wright Penn

Born on April 8, 1966
Robin Gayle Wright Penn is an American film actress.

"When I had money in the past, I would always travel rather than spend it on big apartments or cars. And I still feel exactly the same way"

"We really enjoy entertaining our children with characters. We`ll act out all of The Wizard of Oz together"

"After every movie, I always kick myself for the same things-didn't do enough, not enough variation, not enough interesting choices, too bland."

"Hollywood is a suction for your confidence or your faith or your togetherness. Just walking on the street you can feel it."

"I could not understand why Meryl Streep, for example, is allowed to work while pregnant and I'm not."

"I just love getting dirty."

"Unless you`re a star in this town, you`re really nothing"

"I was technically a Valley Girl, even though I absolutely dreaded being called that. I really hated the idea that I was a Valley Girl."

"I would have made a lousy stripper. I'm just not very comfortable exposing myself."

"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."

"No nude scenes. No sex-symbol parts. I want people to recognize me for my work, not just for being pretty"
-Robin Wright Penn

Robin's sexiness quotient may have slipped some over the past decade, but she still looks fine for a woman hovering around the 40 mark. Celebrity Sleuth magazine lists her measurements as 33-24-34, but don't expect to see Mrs. Penn posing in a sexy Maxim or FHM spread anytime soon. Check out some of her films from the '90s to see her in her sexy prime.

She was listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1986" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 38. [1986]. Wright first became famous on television, playing Kelly Capwell on the soap opera Santa Barbara, which earned her three Daytime Emmy nominations. She shot to stardom after her roles as Buttercup in The Princess Bride and Jenny Curran in Forrest Gump, the latter role garnering her Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild nominations for Best Supporting Actress. Wright was offered the role of Maid Marian in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, but turned it down because she was pregnant. She had to back out of the role of Abby McDeere in The Firm (1993), with Tom Cruise, upon discovering that she was pregnant with her second child (son Hopper Penn). The role eventually went to Jeanne Tripplehorn.

In 1996, she married Sean Penn and changed her name to Robin Wright Penn. She went on to co-star with her husband in the 1997 film She's So Lovely, for which she was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress. One of her most recent successes was a supporting role in the TV movie Empire Falls as Grace Roby, mother of Ed Harris's character Miles Roby. Penn received her third Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for this role.
