It feels like just yesterday that I was staring at the coupling of Robin Wright and Ben Foster and thinking “Oh, she’ll go back to Sean Penn. Trust.” But what do I know? I can barely read my dentist (“Your hand is in my mouth; dinner Thurdsay night?”)
Life & Style is reporting that we should all do a dance around the sanity maypole because Robin Wright is FINALLY de-dickmatized from Sean Penn and is engaged to her hot younger piece:
“She’s been talking all about her upcoming wedding and how excited she is for it,” an insider tells the mag.
The couple met on the set of the 2011 drama Rampart. Ben is best known for his work in films X-Men: The Last Stand, Alpha Dog, Hostage and 3:10 to Yuma.
Robin and Ben have been linked since early 2012 — a year-and-a-half after she ended her tumultuous 20-year relationship with Sean Penn.
Thanks, Life & Style, but I still have no idea who Ben Foster is; I think I’m confusing him for about 12 different people. Here’s an idea! Let’s play a game called Who Ben Foster Isn’t, shall we?
1. Okay, so he’s definitely not Ryan Gosling in poor lighting
2. He’s not Laura Dern’s ex-husband (that’s Ben Harper)
3. The internet tells me he’s not Hawaii 5-0’s Scott Caan, but I haven’t found any pictures of them in the same place, so he could very well be Scott Caan
Regardless of who I can’t tell Ben Foster apart from, one thing is for sure: he’s probably lovely, because Robin has terrific judgement in guys. Ugh, I’m being so cynical; I’m sure they’re sweet in a together-forever high school yearbook love way. Fast forward to 2015, where I’m tagging Another One Bites The Dust on a story about the two fighting in the bathroom of a Santa Monica Denny’s.
Mazel tov, you two! Don’t get too overwhelmed with the mawage planning. All you need for a great party is an open bar, and one of Ben’s co-stars from Get Over It singing an acoustic ballad version of the ‘Thong Song’ during the reception. Sisqó makes the most sense, but I’m sure you could get Kirsten Dunst by promising her access to that open bar.
