Robin Wright picked up a best actress Golden Globe on Sunday for House of Cards. And while you wait for the premiere of the Netflix series’ second season (it premieres February 14, which may be the only date that guarantees it won’t be binge-watched all in one sitting), what better way to spend the post-Globes glow than by revisiting the exquisite actress’s career?
“I think I grew up late,” Wright tells PEOPLE. “Women always say [that] about men over 40. I was a late bloomer. Now I know I’m 48, almost, but I feel like I m 30. I feel like I am going to live my thirties again.”
Warning: This post may engender extreme jealousy when you realize that it looks as if Wright has aged about five years for the past 30 the rest of us have been living.
