Robin Wright and Ben Foster have called off their engagement for a second time, according to Entertainment Tonight. The couple have an on-again, off-again relationship after first meeting in 2011. Although representatives for Wright and Foster haven’t confirmed they’ve called it quits, a source confirmed to People magazine that the couple secretly split months ago.
Robin Wright, who stars in House Of Cards, met Ben on the set of Rampart in 2011 when Foster invited Wright to a poetry reading. In an interview with The Telegraph, Robin confessed it was a first.
“I’d never, ever been asked out on a date before… I was frickin’ married my whole life, and even before that I hadn’t been asked out.”
Reports surfaced in 2012 that Wright was dating Foster after the couple was spotted in Australia, reported People. Wright confirmed in January 2014 that they were engaged. At the time, Wright told The Telegraph that Ben’s “proposal was such a shock. But we felt married anyway. We’ve been together ever since the first date.”
Robin and Ben ended their relationship for the first time in November 2014, but reconnected just months later, when they were spotted at LAX holding hands, reported People. In an April 2015 interview with Vanity Fair, Robin opened up about her relationship with Foster, claiming it to be one of the happiest of her life.
“Perhaps it’s not ladylike, but I’ve never laughed more, read more or come more than with Ben.”
Wright elaborated that her relationship with Foster, “… inspires [her] to be the best of [herself]. There’s so much to learn. It’s endless.” Robin Wright opened up in the past about her divorce from actor Sean Penn, which she described as “devastating” to The Telegraph, especially with their children.
“Divorce in and of itself, and with children, is devastating. Worse than that. One of the reasons why we got back together and broke up so much was trying to keep the family together. If you’ve got kids, it’s a family, and you try again, and you try again. We did that for a long time.”
About her past relationships, Robin Wright insists it’s all about what she manifests.
“I think we manifest the very thing we put out. If you’re putting out negativity, then you’re going to retrieve that same sentiment. If you emanate joy, it comes back to you. I don’t think there was much joy coming back to me before, because I wasn’t putting much out.”
