Wright de­lighted film’s a dud

SundayXtra - - ENTERTAINMENT -

SEAN Penn’s new movie is a to­tal stin­keroo — and Robin Wright is de­lighted, the New York Post says. Here’s why:

The movie, The Last Face, is a love story about aid work­ers in Africa. The idea was for many years “a pas­sion project for Wright,” the pa­per says. She was go­ing to star with Ryan Gosling, then with Javier Bar­dem in the Pen­ndi­rected film, but the fi­nanc­ing never came through.

Af­ter Wright and Penn di­vorced in 2010, he took an op­tion on the script (vin­dic­tively, some say), started dat­ing Theron, cast her in the pic­ture, and here we are.

There­fore, as Name­less In­sider told the Post, “Robin is thrilled the movie bombed. She has too much class to say so pub­licly, but… it would have killed her if Char­l­ize had won an Os­car in the role that was meant for her.”
