Since the dawn of Elena Mrs. Robinson has been the question of how old is she? Ok, the question might have really heated up once people started discussing casting the role, either way…
It’s never mentioned in the book, but we know two facts about her:
- She’s friend’s with Grace who is likely in her 50s if she adopted Christian 23 years ago.
- Ana describes her as looking late 30s to early 40s
Based on those two things I guessed she was in her early to mid 40s. She works in a salon, she should know how to take a few years off with a little make up.
But we finally have the answer to the question: she’s in her mid 40s, 17 years older than Christian.
@XO_BB_XO 17 years. Mrs R is in her mid 40s.
