Robin Wright was "way too young" when she had her daughter.
The 49-year-old actress gave birth to Dylan with her ex-husband Sean Penn when she was just 25, welcoming their son Hopper two years later in 1996. At the time she was happy to look after her family and let her actor spouse continue to work, but looking back she thinks things happened too soon in life.
"Way too young," she told Britain's Harper's Bazaar when asked about her thoughts of having children at that age. "I didn't know me! I'm living my life now. I've raised kids my whole life.
"Oh my God. (I'm discovering) so many things (now). So many things that I probably would have learned in my thirties had I not been a mom and a wife... I'm finally getting to me. You know? It's an essence, it's a feel thing."

The pretty 23 year old makes her feature film debut in professional skateboarder Eli Morgan Gesner's new thriller Condemned, which is scheduled for release next month (13Nov15), but she admits she only took on the role to build up her acting credentials for when she steps behind the camera.

The familial advice shook shy Dylan up because she feared she didn't have what it takes to be an actress, especially in such a gritty film.
