Robin Wright was born in Dallas, Texas, on April 8, 1966, but grew up in San Diego, California. The daughter of a pharmaceutical executive and an autonomous executive sales director for Mary Kay cosmetics, Wright was a natural beauty and started modeling at an early age, moving to both Paris and Japan while still in high school.
Wright states she continued modeling mainly for the traveling opportunities it provided: “I think that the whole idea of beauty changes your ability to not only find yourself but to have a healthy sense of your identity. And then I went to Europe and I didn’t want to come home. I loved Europe so much.”
Even though, as a teenager, Wright was selected homecoming queen and had a thriving modeling career, she was really more interested in dancing than being photographed. “I think the beginning of my interest in arts was when I was around 9 or 10 and I began dancing, she states. “I was really satisfied that I was going to go to New York and be onstage in A Chorus Line. Then that idea was sort of assumed from my life because we went to San Diego.”
