“House of Cards” star Robin Wright recently shared how devastating her divorce was with ex-husband Sean Penn.
In a very transparent interview with The Telegraph, the 47-year-old actress expressed why it was so hard for her to move on from the marriage, one reason being her children.
“One of the reasons why we got back together and broke up so much was trying to keep the family together… and we did that for a long time,” she said. “Sean sees the kids. They see him. They see me. We’ve all got our own lives.”
However, Wright has now moved past the upsetting experience with a newfound personality, and it shows all too well with new fiancé Ben Foster.
The two lovebirds first met in 2011 on the set of “Rampart,” which 33-year-old Foster produced and Wright starred.
During the interview, Wright fondly remembered her first date with Foster.
“I’d never, ever been asked out on a date before,” Wright explained. “Never. I was frickin’ married my whole life, and even before that I hadn’t been asked out.” (image)
After two years of dating, Wright said that Foster surprisingly popped the question, one that she referred to as a “surreal” experience.
Yet, it appears that the pair has already tied the knot in a way with their matching tattoos.
Located on Wright’s left hand is the initial “B,” and of course it stands for Ben.
“Ben has a ‘R’ tattoo in the same place,” she explained to The Telegraph. “I’ve been so anti-tattoos my whole life. But doing this felt right because we’re not that traditional.”
Well, one thing Wright seems not so traditional about is embracing a few wrinkles here and there.
She confessed how she enjoys getting Botox at least twice a year.
“Everybody f**king does it…Perhaps it’s not wise to put that in a magazine? But I ain’t hiding anything.”
Along with a new attitude and a successful love life, the former “Forrest Gump” actress is also really focused on taking her career to a whole new level of confidence.
“I used to lie in wait and hope to see what roles would come in,” she said. “But my new ambition is to go out and find what I want. I also want to direct more. I totally have the bug now.”
