Cary Elwes Wishes Princess Bride Co-Star Robin Wright Happy Birthday
Nearly 30 years after the Princess Bride made us root for "True wuv" to conquer all with Buttercup and Westley's unbreakable love, lead Cary Elwes is continuing to say "As you wish" to co-star Robin Wright, and it's giving us all the flashback feels.
On Saturday, the actor took to Instagram to wish his former onscreen love interest a happy 51st birthday with a photo from the 1987 film, and it's like no time has passed for the two.
"Happy Birthday Robin," Elwes began the sweet message, which depicts a throwback shot of the pair sitting together on set of the movie.
"You were a princess when we met, and now you're lovelier than any queen. Please join me in wishing her the very best. @robingwright," he continued. In the nostalgia-inducing photo, the House of Cards star keeps warm in a red dress and matching puffer jacket while Elwes pairs his iconic pirate costume with a black baseball cap and a fur-trimmed green coat.
As Westley says best, "This is true love. Do you think this happens every day?"
With the film's anniversary officially coming up in the fall, we're more excited than ever for a Buttercup and Westley reunion and to see our favorite characters from the fantasy flick!
