She Wanted Out: Robin Wright (Buttercup) has been in the public eye since she was a fourteen year old model in Paris. When she grew older she became a regular on the soap opera, Santa Barbara, but she wanted to do movies.
Made a Deal: When the opportunity came for her to be in The Princess Bride, she made a deal with the Santa Barbara executives. She could take the required time off in exchange for signing on for another nine months with the soap. She agreed reluctantly.
