Robin Wright and Ben Foster Call Off Their 10 Month Engagement
By Sarah Flanigan
After three years together and a ten-month engagement, Robin Wright and Ben Foster have reportedly called off their engagement, according to Us Weekly.
The two began dating in 2011 after they met on the set of Rampart and Foster popped the question in January 2014. The 48-year-old House of Cards star told the Telegraph in February that same year that that getting engaged to 34-year-old Foster wasn’t all that different than dating.
"We felt married anyway,” Wright said. “We've been together ever since the first date."
The Golden Globe winner added that it wasn’t just the ring she had on her ring finger that represented her devotion to her now-ex.
“Ben has an ‘R’ tattoo in the same place,” she said, admitting that she actually has a ‘B’ tattoo on his ring finger as well. “I’ve been so anti-tattoos my whole life. But doing this felt right because we’re not that traditional.”
Foster is not Wright’s first Hollywood romance. She was married to Oscar winner Sean Penn (who is now dating Charlize Theron) from 1996 until 2010. The two were on-again-off-again for a while and they have two children together, Dylan Penn, 23, and Hopper Penn, 21.
"Divorce in and of itself, and with children, is devastating,” Wright also told the Telegraph in February about her split from Penn. “If you've got kids, it's a family, and you try again, and you try again. We did that for a long time."
