The Robin Wright Penn Dilemma
There hasn’t been much real writing posted here in quite some time. My recent unemployment has left me bored, lazy, and very into NCAA Football 10 on the X-Box. All of this has kept me away from the computer and thus, away from the blogosphere. Today, my wife had an interesting thought while channel surfing…what’s the deal with Robin Wright?
See, the awful, terrible movie “Message In A Bottle” was on TBS or something like that. Well, Robin Wright is awfully hot in that movie. We started wondering why she seems older looking or not hot in so many movies. There just isn’t any in between; she either looks fantastic or really boring. Here are some examples of movies in which she is hot:
– “The Princess Bride”, “Message In A Bottle”, “Forrest Gump”, “Moll Flanders”, “State Of Play”
…and the not hot ones:
– “The Crossing Guard”, “Hurlyburly”, “The Pledge”, “Unbreakable”, “Forrest Gump”
“Forrest Gump” is in both lists because when Jenny is young and trying to be a folk singer, she’s totally hot. When Jenny goes hippie and is strung out on H…not so much buddy. So, it makes both lists.
Cinematically Correct note: The one thing that isn’t debatable is that Robin Wright is pretty damn good in every movie though, regardless of her appearance.
