Aging isn't easy, especially in Hollywood. But "House of Cards" star Robin Wright is taking a healthy, positive approach to the inevitable.

In a new interview with Town & Country, Wright bristles at the idea that her aversion to plastic surgery could have prevented her from accepting roles. Case in point: the actress had her doubts at the time David Fincher, executive producer of "House of Cards," tapped her for the role of Claire Underwood three years ago.

"I was sitting there going, 'You're 45, and you're not gonna get a face-lift,'" she told Town & Country for the June/July cover story. "I was really considering that stuff, because in Hollywood the pressure's there. You better lift that face and pump those lips and hike those boobs! And I was like, 'I don't want to do that. I'm going to get older. I'm going to have wrinkles!' "

Yes, one day she's going to have wrinkles, but, refusing to go under the knife, Wright hasn't written off the wonders of Botox. "It’s just the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year. I think most women do 10 units, but that freezes the face and you can’t move it. This is just one unit, and it’s just sprinkled here and there to take the edge off," she told The Telegraph in February.

Wright also spoke to Town & Country about her decision to refuse any "wife and arm candy" roles that were often thrown her way, revealing that her big break, 1987's "Princess Bride," may have come much sooner if it weren't for Molly Ringwald, to whom she often found herself losing roles.
