As Robin Wright Penn enjoys a resurgence in her career with the upcoming film The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, she says she harbors no regrets about stepping away from the cameras to focus on family. “I knew by making that choice to be a full-time mom and turning down commercial movies took me out of the game, I knew that,” the 43-year-old actress tells WalesOnline. “I knew that would happen and I was absolutely fine with that.”
“I did it very willingly and happily and loved it – loved raising my kids.”
Now that Dylan Frances, 18, and Hopper Jack, turning 16 next month, are coming into their own, however, Robin says that the finish line is in sight — and she likes what she sees! “I’m like ‘Go!’” she admits. “The kids are grown – one’s off to university — so I’m a free bird.”
Dylan and Hopper are Robin’s children with husband Sean Penn.
