Los Angeles, May 16 IANS | 6 months ago

Actress Robin Wright says Hollywood is a difficult place to get good roles if one has integrity.


The "House of Cards" star refused to take wife and arm-candy roles, which would have raised her profile, and instead concentrated on raising her daughter Dylan, 23, and son Hopper, 20, with ex-husband Sean Penn and waited for a good role, reports contactmusic.com.

"Hollywood is difficult to navigate if you have integrity, so I opted not to work if there wasn't enough to do in a role, which doesn't have to do with the role's size," said Wright.

"If there's nothing for me to do as an actress, then that's frustrating. I'd rather go work at a menial labour job, where I can actually get my hands dirty," she added.

The 48-year-old said her decision to stand back had an effect on her.

"In a sense it hurts, because you're like, 'I want to play too! I just don't want to play that way'. I'm not up there with Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts. I don't sell tickets. I've known that for a long time," she said.
