Robin Wright Workout and DIET
Robin Wright was born in Texas. Her parents divorced when she was 2 and her mother moved the kids to San Diego. Wright began modeling when she was 14, and landed a role in the soap opera Santa Barbara when she was 18. Wright’s first film role was in 1986 with Hollywood Vice Squad, and her breakthrough came the following year with The Princess Bride. In 1994, she won a SAG award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in Forrest Gump. Other acting credits include Message in a Bottle, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Blade Runner 2049. Wright also starred in and won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in House of Cards. She is one of the highest paid actresses in the US. Wright was married to Sean Penn and has 2 children with him. Charitable foundations she supports include Pour Les Femmes, the SunnyLion and The Gordie Foundation. She has hundreds of thousands of followers on social media. Wright is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs about 130 lbs.
Robin Wright‘s Diet
Well into her 50s, Wright’s body has been described as ‘ageless.’ She works for it, both through diet and exercise. For House of Cards, she followed a strict Paleo diet, which amounted to lots of protein and veggies and virtually no carbs. For Wonder Woman, she loaded up on protein and consumed mass-gainers. Left to her own devices, she takes a moderate approach, and doesn’t deny herself the occasional glass, or bottle, of wine. No matter what diet she is following, she always drinks a lot of water.
- Medium Fat 20% 20%
- variable Carb 30% 30%
- High Protein 50% 50%
To play the role of a ruthless modern woman, Wright ate like a cavewoman. The Paleo diet involves eating like our ancient ancestors, meaning meat and plants but no grains.
Eat Like an Amazon
To get ripped for Wonder Woman, Wright bulked up by drinking a lot of protein shakes made with whole milk, raw oats, avocados, and protein mass gainer powders.
It’s All About Balance
Wright says she does a fine job of maintaining her diet. Even if she indulges and has some wine one evening, the very next day she’s back to salads.

I’m trying to do the Paleo diet. No carbs. I’ve got to get thin for the show.
Wright on her Wonder Woman diet
We were trying to do 2-3,000 calories a day: raw oats in smoothies with avocado, whole milk, and weight-gain powder, 3 times a day.
Wright on her diet
I’m a moderate person. I’ll have a bottle of wine, and then I’ll wake up the next day and drink green juice and eat salads.

I eat In-N-Out Burger every chance I get.

Dark chocolate covered blueberries are my favorite sweet.

How to Get Sculpted Arms

Wright is an exercise fiend. While she enjoys SoulCycle, she says that just doesn’t get the job done.
Wright is a big fan of running, and often hits the beach in the morning.
For Wonder Woman, Wright did a workout worthy of an Amazon: an hour of horseback riding and another hour of heavy weights training. She actually did less training than her costars as she had to juggle the schedule with shooting House of Cards.

Robin Wright‘s Supplements
Wright downed protein shakes like they were going out of style for Wonder Woman. Protein builds muscle, curbs appetite, and can help you lose weight.
Also in prep for her Wonder Woman role, Wright also took a lot of mass gainer which is great for people who are looking to get stronger but struggle to get enough calories each day.
Wright started taking Nutrafol after finishing up with House of Cards to help her hair grow back thicker and faster.
