'House of Cards' Star Robin Wright and Ben Foster Engaged, Headed for "Mawwiage"

Wright — who was also previously married to Dane Witherspoon and has two children, 20-year-old Hopper and 22-year-old Dylan, with Penn — and Foster began dating in 2011 after filming Rampart together, but you'll hardly hear the couple waxing poetic about one another in public. How very Claire Underwood.

So, next up for The Princess Bride star? A possible Golden Globe, an undoubtedly amazing Season 3 of House of Cards, and, of course...
