What a weekend for Robin! Just before the Golden Globes, where she’s nominated for an award, it was confirmed that the sexy actress would be tying the knot with her younger actor boyfriend. Congratulations!
Robin Wright has found yet another gritty actor to marry! The 47-year-old House of Cards actress confirmed her engagement to boyfriend Ben Foster on Jan. 10, stepping out and flaunting her engagement ring at Diane von Furstenburg‘s “Journey of a Dress” exhibition in Los Angeles. And ironically, the engagement news comes just a day before Robin’s ex, Sean Penn, was spotted packing on the PDA with his new famous girlfriend, Charlize Theron.
Robin Wright & Ben Foster Get Engaged
Ben, 33, and Robin were all smiles at the fashion event and totally had that newly engaged glow. Robin’s rep confirmed the couple’s engagement, which had been rumored since mid-December, according to People.
The two actors starred in Rampart in 2011, and reports about their relationship began to surface in Feb. 2012 when they were spotted getting cozy with each other at an Italian restaurant in Australia.
“Ben is a sweet guy and you don’t even notice the age difference,” a source told Us Weekly. “He’s a lot more mild-mannered than Sean.”
This will be the third marriage for Robin, who was married to Sean Penn for 13 years, and with whom she has two children: Dylan, 22, and Hopper, 20.
Sean Penn Cozies Up To Charlize Theron
Speaking of Sean, Robin’s engagement news comes just as his own new romance heats up. Over the holidays, Sean was spotted on a Hawaii vacation with Charlize Theron. The two megastars looked very romantic and comfortable together, and they’ve hardly left each other’s sides since returning to LA on Jan. 5.
Then on Jan. 11, the same day Robin’s engagement was confirmed, Sean and Charlize cozied up to each other as he hosted the Sean Penn & Friends Help Haiti Home Gala. With Sean in a smart tux and Charlize in a stunning black dress, the two packed on the PDA and proved that their romance is just as healthy as Robin and Ben’s.
Love must really be in the air! What do you think about Robin’s engagement, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
