'House of Cards' actor Robin Wright covers the May 18th issue of The Edit, ready to talk about her new blockbuster 'Wonder Woman' and the fifth season of being America's First Lady Claire Underwood.
The 51-year-old actor is interviewed with Garage singer Shirley Manson, and Wright explains that she had a complete body transformation while preparing to play the role of General Antiope in the 'Wonder Woman' movie.
Wright reveals how she altered her training regime and diet in order to portray her fierce warrior character. "We would do horse riding for an hour, then drive from the stable to the studio and do weight training for an hour -- heavy weights and short reps to build size quickly," she explains. "We were trying to do 2-3,000 calories a day: raw oats in smoothies with avocado, whole milk and weight-gain powder, three times a day.” The younger women worked much harder.
