Did you get your copy of Psychologies in the mail yet? Yeah, me either. I can't wait either. Every day I rush home from work hoping upon hope that my issue of Psychologies is there and that no one in my family has stolen it so they can read it first. I know, but apparently someone reads the magazine because they have a five page interview with Robin Wright Penn. The interview was done in April. That was after the Academy Awards snub, but before they split again. Got it? It is confusing. I'm just glad it isn't a Shanna Moakler interview because it would be impossible to figure out if a split had been in progress or a reconciliation or if anyone cared.
How did Robin describe her marriage in April?
"You know, all marriages have their cycles and phases. It’s life – we all go through it, if we’re married long enough. If you’re lucky, you grow and you change and you work it out. But it feels good now – if it didn’t I wouldn’t still be here."
Umm. Didn't they split up like a week later?
Talking about the bond she shares with Sean, she said, "Sean and I have a lot of history – there are a lot of chapters in that book. It’s back to what we were just talking about – you have to do the work in your marriage, but it has to be laid on a really strong foundation of love. We have that, and shared history deepens that foundation, I would say."
I must have missed the day in school when they talked about strong foundation of love. Because I think I would have remembered how hookers on a family vacation fit into that foundation.
And in the most sickening quote since whenever the last Katie Holmes interview took place, you have this gem when talking about life at home. "Oh Sean is hopeless domestically. I’m the homemaker, and that’s fine with me, because I really like that. But he’s so completely a family man – he always wants us all to be together and do things together, and he’s the one who injects a lot of energy into the family. I’ll bake, and Sean will say, ‘I know, let’s take a boat up the Colorado River!’"
And the reaction from the judges to that quote? Yes, Tom Cruise is standing and applauding. I think those are tears in his eyes and wishes he could have had Katie say it first.
