Robin Wright Penn’s New Dark Hair

  • Pin it

I hereby confess a weakness for Robin Wright-Penn. (scratch the Penn? Oh, it doesn’t matter!) I like the woman. And I thought (and still continue to do so) she made a wonderful pair with Sean Penn.

Where I failed to have a proper update on was Robin’s hair. I believe she was a blonde. Since forever? Which color goes better on Robin’s pretty head? Golden or post-brake-up black? Cast your vote right after the first picture! (if you need more images to decide, click through!) (photos via)

UPDATE: a couple of years later, we find Robin Wright with a new hair, a new man and new, successful TV show. Let’s talk about them, in that order:

Robin Wright new haircut new man

She’s been a brunette briefly but cut her hair pretty short after the official separation from ex-husband Sean Penn, in 2010 and kept it short ever since. Robin’s new partner since 2012 is young Penn’s lookalike, actor Ben Foster (32) with whom she has been seen everywhere and most recently at the 2013 Emmy Awards.

Robin Wright as Claire Underwood House of Cards

Talking about the Emmys – Robin has a new TV show, Netflix’s House of Cards in which she’s costarring with Kevin Spacey, directed by the grand David Fincher. Although she was nominated, and even covered, with Kevin, the Emmy magazine, Robin didn’t receive the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (it went to Claire Danes, again, for her Homeland performance).

She truly suits being a blonde. For me I will always love her for her role as the Princess Bride! That was a great and funny film with a stellar cast!

Ah, I love Robin Wright too. Yes skip “Penn”. Robin seems to have had enough now. It’s funny how women often change their hair when she starts all over. I prefer a blond Robin though. I wish her all the best with her new start. and great parts since I like her a lot as an actress but hope she’s going back to blond……I don’t like it.

Mr. Penn and his cheating ways is off my “GRRR-men list”. I wish him luck though the fool.

Hmmm, VERY interesting as a brunette. Still lovely! Maybe a shorter cut so her long face isn’t accentuated?

Robin is hot as hell with short hair. Hope she keeps it short.
