If you’d told me when I was a little kid that I’d want to be Princess Buttercup when I grew up, I’d have been pretty sure you were on drugs. I mean, I love Princess Bride, don’t get me wrong, but no one ever loved that movie because of the Princess. They loved it because of the swashbuckling heroes and the comedy.
But the gal who played Princess Buttercup, Robin Wright, went on to play Antiope in Wonder Woman, a character who was onscreen for all of ten minutes and who is my new favorite person. Seriously, she was badass. Robin Wright also plays Claire Underwood on House of Cards, a character who is even more terrifyingly formidable than Antiope, and without even having a sword.
I want to be the women Robin Wright plays these days.
