Actress Robin Wright is set to wed boyfriend Ben Foster after almost two years of dating, according to a U.S. report. The 47 year old officially ended her 14-year marriage to Sean Penn in July, 2010 and began dating Foster, who is 14 years her junior, in early 2011 after meeting on the set of movie drama Rampart.
Now the couple is said to be heading down the aisle, seven months after going public with its romance.
A source tells Life & Style magazine, "She's been talking all about her upcoming wedding and how excited she is for it."
Representatives for the two stars have yet to comment on the report.
Wright will be hoping third time's the charm - she was also married to another actor, Dane Witherspoon, for two years from 1986.
It will be 33-year-old Foster's first marriage.
Sean Penn and Robin Wright's daughter, Dylan Penn, is eager to start her own career in the spotlight - the aspiring model has reportedly landed a deal to become the face of a new Gap campaign. The 22 year old will be featured in the clothing company's ads in magazines, retail stores and online campaigns from January (14).
"We were in Washington, D.C. on Halloween, and it just so happened Arnold Schwarzenegger was in town doing True Lies... So me and my kids, Sean Penn and Robin (Wright) and their kids and Arnold and his kids went out trick or treating together, in Georgetown. If anyone was to come out of their house to see who’s on the sidewalk, they’re going to win the celebrity lottery here." Tom Hanks recalls a celebrity Halloween night out.
Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson has found love again with Sean Penn's model daughter, according to a U.S. report. The British actor, 27, is moving on from his Kristen Stewart split by dating 22-year-old Dylan Penn, whose mum is actress Robin Wright.
A source tells People.com, "They've been dating a month or two. He's crazy about her."
Pattinson and Stewart ended their on/off relationship for good earlier this year (13), following Stewart's so-called "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders in July, 2012.

Sean Penn's ex-wife Robin Wright went public with her romance with actor Ben Foster on Saturday (04May13) when they walked their first red carpet together at a prizegiving celebrating the best in Off-Broadway theatre. The Moneyball actress, 47, has been dating Foster - who is 14 years her junior - since early last year (12) and they finally decided to make their public debut as a couple at the Lucille Lortel Awards in New York at the weekend.
However, it appears the stars were not comfortable putting their relationship on full display for press photographers.
A source tells the New York Post's Page Six column, "They actually ran off the carpet because all the camera flashes overwhelmed them."
Wright's divorce from Penn was finalised in 2010 after 14 years of marriage.
Actress Robin Wright was left red-faced when her ex-husband Sean Penn let slip to her childhood crush Rod Stewart that she stole his mail as a teenager. The Forrest Gump star would wait outside Stewart's Los Angeles home to catch a glimpse of the Maggie May hitmaker before helping herself to letters from his post box.
And the actress was left mortified when Stewart finally found out about her embarrassing secret.
She tells Britain's The Sun, "I was completely in love with Rod Stewart. I had a huge poster of him on my bedroom wall and thought I was going to marry him. I met him for the first time with Sean... we were at a party and I was so nervous I was sweating.
"Sean introduced us both by saying, 'Robin was in love with you and used to steal your mail.' I did too, I used to take it from the mailbox outside Rod's house in Los Angeles.
"I was 15 at the time and had an older friend who drove. I would wait down the end of the drive just to see Rod walking out. It was so humiliating to see him as an adult and not be in love with him anymore. It breaks the magic."
, Oscar-winning actor and all-around charmer recently gave Esquire some quotes that most entertainment journalists could only dream of. On this, Golden Globe nomination day, it's been making the rounds that the actor/activist told the magazine he thinks "in general the standard of aspiration is low" in Hollywood. He added, "And mostly they're just doing a bunch of monkey-f**k-rat movies, most actors and actresses."
The 52-year-old continued, "I blame them just as much as I do the business. I know everybody wants to make some money, everybody's got a modeling contract, everybody's selling jewelry and perfume. I'm blinded by it. Bob Dylan said in an interview one time — somebody asked him, 'Are you really this reclusive?' He says, 'No, I'm not reclusive, man. I'm exclusive. Exclusivity is like intimacy.'"
Are you not entertained?! No? Don't worry, there's also...
"When I was growing up and somebody like Robert De Niro had a movie come out, it was a cultural event. Because he had such a confidence and a single mission that was so intimate. But when people start using themselves as instruments of a kind of consumerist mosh pit, they're helping that take over. I mean, you are a soldier for it or you're a soldier against it. That's all there is to it. And we have so little of that intimacy left, it's no wonder that interpersonal relationships have become text relationships. It's a texting orgy. When is somebody gonna sit there, with their mate or their child, and just look them in the eye and say, 'I love you?' When is that life??"
When, he asks you... when?!
Then there's the part where he reveals he was a "genius" in school and that when it comes to his past relationships, including that with his ex-wife Robin Wright, he has never truly been loved, just "unaware of the fraud in a few of these circumstances blindly."
Still, Penn didn't completely burn every bridge in Hollywood, despite having a history of doing this sort of thing. I mean, he said he definitely enjoyed working on the delayed drama Gangster Squad and he likes certain actors and actresses in the biz, namely Daniel [Day-Lewis], Philip [Seymour Hoffman], Javier [Bardem], Josh [Brolin] and Jessica Chastain, whom he compares to a "fucking Stradivarius." What a guy. You can read the entire diatribe here.
What are your thoughts on Penn's statements? Is it self-righteous or does he sort of have a point? And is anybody else slightly curious as to what, exactly, a 'monkey-f**k-rat' movie is?

The Oscar winner, who has two kids with the Forrest Gump star, admits the truth came out during the couple's divorce proceedings in 2010.
He tells Esquire magazine, "There is no shame in saying that we all want to be loved by someone. As I look back over my life in romance, I don't feel I've ever had that. I have been the only one that was unaware of the fraud in a few of these circumstances blindly.
"When you get divorced, all the truths come out, you sit there and go, 'What the f**k was I doing? What was I doing believing that this person was invested in this way?' Which is a fantastically strong humiliation in the best sense.
"It can make somebody very bitter and very hard and closed off, but I find it does the opposite to me."
And Penn admits his efforts in Haiti, where he has been working tirelessly to rebuild areas devastated by the 2010 earthquake that rocked the nation, helped to keep his mind off the breakdown of his marriage.
He adds, "You had a country that had never experienced anything that related to comfort, and out of that you had great trauma - but also this great strength that, I think, we all benefited from."
If there's a cinematic alchemy award to be given this year director Bill Condon deserves to take it home after magically turning the tedious Twilight franchise into entertainment gold. 2011's Part 1 was a horror camp romp that turned the supernatural love triangle — the naval gazing trio of Bella Edward and Jacob — on its head. Breaking Dawn - Part 2 continues the madcap exploration of a world populated by vampires and werewolves mining even more comedy thrills and genuine character moments out of conceit than ever before. The film occasionally sidesteps back into Edward and Bella's meandering romance (an evident hurdle of author Stephenie Meyer's source material) but the duller moments are overshadowed by the movie's nimble pace and playful attitude. Breaking Dawn - Part 2 will elicit laughs aplenty — but thankfully they're all on purpose.
Part 2 picks up immediately following the events of the first film Bella (Kristen Stewart) having been turned into a vampire by Edward (Robert Pattinson) to save her life after the torturous delivery of her half-human half-vampire child Renesmee. She awakes to discover super senses heightened agility increased strength… and a thirst for blood. One dead cougar later Bella and the gang are able to focus on the real troubles ahead: Renesmee is rapidly growing (think Jack) and vampiric overlords The Volturi perceive her a threat to vampiric secrecy. Knowing the Volturi will travel to Forks WA to kill the young girl (a 10-year-old just a month after being born) The Cullens amass an army of bloodsucking friends to end the oppression once and for all.
Packed with an absurd amount of backstory and mythology-twisting plot points (some vampires can shoot lightning now?) Condon and series screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg mine revel in the beefed up ensemble of Breaking Dawn - Part 2 and thanks to a wildly funny cast it never feels like pointless deviation. Along with the usual suspects Lee Pace adds swagger to the series as a grungy alt-rock vampire Noel Fisher appears as a hilarious over-the-top battle-ready Russian coven member and Michael Sheen returns has Volturi head honcho Aro and steels the show. Flamboyant diabolical and a steady stream of maniacal laughter Sheen owns Condon's high camp vision for Twilight and he lights up the screen. There are a few throw away nations of vampires — the oddly stereotypical Egyptian and Amazonians sects are there mostly there to off-set the extreme whiteness — but the actors involved bring liveliness to a franchise known for being soulless. Even Stewart Pattinson and Taylor Lautner give personal bests in this installment — a scene between Bella and her dad Charlie (Billy Burke) is genuinely heartfelt while Jacob's overprotective hero schtick finally lands.
Whereas Breaking Dawn - Part 1 stuck mostly to the personal story relying on the intimate moments as Bella and Edward took the big plunge into marriage and sex Part 2 paints with broader strokes and Condon has a ball. Delving into the history of the vampires and the vampire world outside Forks is Pandora's Box for the director. One scene where we learn why kids scare the heck of the Volturi captures a scope of medieval epics — along with the bloodshed. Twilight might be known for its sexual moments but Breaking Dawn - Part 2 will go down for its abundance of decapitations. The big set piece in the finale is something to behold both in the craftsmanship of the spectacle and in its bizarre nature.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 had the audience hooting hollering and even gasping as it twisted and turned to the final moments. There's little doubt that even the biggest naysayer of the franchise would do the same. No irony here: the conclusion of Twilight is a blast.
