Wuv, twoo wuv…it’s still going strong, nearly 30 years later.
Cary Elwes posted on social media Saturday the sweetest 51st birthday tribute to Robin Wright, his co-star in the 1987 cult fantasy film The Princess Bride. The two play love interests Westley and Buttercup.
Elwes, 54, posted a photo of the two sitting in their costumes on their outdoor set, with her wearing the red dress she sported when her character gets kidnapped under a matching puffer coat. The actor sports an olive green parka over his black pirate’s outfit, as well as a cap.
“Happy Birthday Robin,” Elwes wrote. “You were a princess when we met, and now you’re lovelier than any queen. Please join me in wishing her the very best. @robingwright.”

I’ve updated the Robin Wright Web Gallery with screencaps from Robin’s role in “Everest”.

On the actress side, Tatiana Maslany (BBC America’s Orphan Black) was once again back on the bench, as was Robin Wright (Netflix’s House of Cards). Netflix’s Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown was considered likely to get recognized in the supporting category, but although the sci-fi breakout did get into the drama category and a nom for Winona Ryder, its kid stars were left out. Same for Emilia Clarke-Sophie Turner-Maisie Williams on Thrones, Constance Zimmer on Lifetime’s UnReal, and Maura Tierney in Showtime’s The Affair.
Reese Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard and Spotlight producer Anonymous Content are teaming to produce a timely TV series based on Kate Andersen Brower’s bestseller First Women: The Grace & Power Of America’s Modern First Ladies. It will be directed and executive produced Robin Wright, who plays a First Lady on TV on Netflix’s House Of Cards.
The book, published April 12 by HarperCollins, is described as an intimate, news-making look at the true modern power brokers at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: the First Ladies, from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama. Wright, who won a Golden Globe for her role as FLOTUS Claire Underwood on House Of Cards, is attached to direct the pilot. She executive produces, along with Pacific Standard’s Witherspoon, Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar, and Bruna Papandrea. Anonymous Content’s Ashley Zalta and Doreen Wilcox-Little are co-executive producers.
