On a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Robin Wright made an appearance to talk about her career and share some amusing anecdotes. The lively conversation between Jimmy Fallon and Wright covered a range of topics, from her early days as a dancer to her experience working with the late André the Giant.

Wright started off the interview by joking about how she hasn’t aged a day since her last appearance on the show, ten years ago. They even made a pact to have her visit the show every ten years. Jimmy Fallon couldn’t hide his excitement, expressing his love for Robin Wright and remarking how it feels like she was just there last year.

The conversation took an unexpected turn when they discussed Wright’s early dancing career and how it landed her a Doritos commercial. Jimmy was eager to see the signature move that got her the gig, which involved a pirouette with Doritos in hand. Robin Wright graciously obliged, showing off her dance moves on the set to the delight of the audience.

Switching gears, Jimmy asked if Robin Wright had lived in New York City at any point in her career. She revealed that during her time filming “House of Cards,” she had a place in the city and shared that her favorite part about Central Park was the squirrels. It was a lighthearted moment that showcased Wright’s down-to-earth personality.

The conversation then shifted to auditions, and Jimmy jokingly asked if Wright ever walked into auditions thinking she nailed it every time. To his surprise, she replied with a resounding “no,” except for one instance during the audition for “Forrest Gump.” She recalled feeling confident because she was pregnant with her second child and had a great connection with Tom Hanks. Their chemistry was undeniable, and Wright walked out of the audition feeling like she had secured the part.

Revisiting some of Wright’s iconic roles, Jimmy brought up “The Princess Bride” and how she was the perfect fit for that movie. Wright humbly mentioned that she believes she got the part because exhaustion had set in after auditioning 500 other actresses. The director, Rob Reiner, simply decided to cast her, and the rest is cinematic history.

One of the highlights of the interview was Wright’s recollection of working with André the Giant on “The Princess Bride.” She described him as a gentle giant who would comfort her on the cold and rainy set by palming her head like a basketball. His constant sweating made it feel like having a sauna on her head, creating a unique on-set experience.

Aside from her acting prowess, Robin Wright has also made a name for herself as a director. She directed episodes of “House of Cards” and “Ozark” and is now preparing for a new project called “The Girlfriend” on Amazon. Fallon expressed his admiration, stating that he would be honored to be directed by her anytime.

Towards the end of the interview, they discussed Wright’s role in the fantasy film “Damsel,” where she plays Queen Isabelle. The conversation turned lighthearted again, with Wright jokingly suggesting that her character could be an older and angrier version of Princess Buttercup from “The Princess Bride.”

The interview concluded with a clip showcasing Wright’s commanding performance in “Damsel,” leaving the audience eager to see more. As always, Robin Wright‘s charisma and talent shone through during her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Fans can catch “Damsel” on Netflix starting next Friday, and we can’t wait to see what Robin Wright does next in her flourishing career.
