So sad! Robin and her fiance of 10 months, Ben, have decided to call it quits. Here’s what went wrong.
Some fans were surprised when Robin Wright, 48, confirmed her engagement to a much younger man, 3:10 to Yuma actor Ben Foster, 34. So did their 14-year age gap play a role in their split? Here’s what we know.
Ben Foster & Robin Wright Split: Couple Breaks Up After 10-Month Engagement
Robin was super excited about her engagement at first but it seems that once the dust settled, she had a major change of heart, according to Us Weekly.
“She got swept up in the engagement last Christmas, but then their schedules got crazy and she realized it wasn’t the right decision,” an insider tells the mag.
The summer of 2014 was “the breaking point” for the former couple, Us reports. Robin had an extremely busy summer jetting back and forth across the country to film House of Cards in Boston and be with her children with ex-husband Sean Penn, Dylan, 23, and Hopper Jack, 21, in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Ben was in London starring in a production of A Streetcar Named Desire, so he and Robyn definitely weren’t spending much quality time together.
Their considerable age difference was another reason behind the split. “The gap just ended up being too much,” a source close to Robin tells Us. “Ben was kind of immature. She couldn’t deal with him anymore.”
Yikes! We’re sorry to see Robin and Ben part ways but it definitely sounds like it’s for the best.
Robin Wright & Ben Foster Confirm Their Engagement
Robin first confirmed her engagement to Ben on Jan. 10, 2014, when she flaunted her stunning engagement ring at Diane von Furstenburg‘s “Journey of a Dress” exhibition in Los Angeles.
The two actors met on the set of Rampart in 2011, and rumors about their romance began to swirl in Febuary 2012 when they were spotted cozying up to each other at a romantic restaurant in Australia.
This would have been the third marriage for Robin, who was previously married to Dane Witherspoon for two years and Sean Penn for 13 years.
