I’m a apparently very behind on the celebrity dating rumor mill, because Ben Foster and Robin Wright have been a couple for two years and are now engaged and I had no idea they even knew each other.
It seems a little random, but it also makes me happy because I like them both, especially him in Alpha Dog and on Six Feet Under and her with anyone besides that grumpy, smile-challenged Hobbit Sean Penn.
There’s also a 14-year-age difference which gives me faith my own 8-year-difference. (Like Wright, I’m the old cougar/snapping tortoise.) He’s 33 and she’s 47, in case you were wondering.
Wright, who met Foster on the set of Rampart in 2011, is reportedly super “excited” to plan her wedding. Yay. Confirmation that she’s a human woman! (Am I a man for having nightmares about Kelly Clarkson singing “every ball needs a chain” in a wedding dress?)
