Robin Wright and Ben Foster have called it quits.

The House of Cards and The Princess Bride star confirmed in January that she and the actor, known for roles in X-Men: The Last Stand and the 2013 film Lone Survivor, were engaged. A source had told E! News recently that the engagement was off. E! News learned on Wednesday that the two have broken up.

Wright, 48, and Foster, 34, have not commented. They met on the set of the movie Rampart, which was released in 2011, and began dating that year.

At the 2014 Golden Globes in January, during which the actress won Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama for her role as cunning Claire Underwood in Netflix's political drama House of Cards, the two packed on the PDA on the red carpet. At an after-party, Wright talked about their engagement with E! News, saying, "I'm very blessed." She also described Foster as "the hottest."

In February, Wright revealed in an interview with the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph that she and Foster got corresponding tattoos. She got the letter B inked on the third finger on her left hand. Wright said Foster got an "R" tattoo in the same place.

Foster has never been married before, while Wright has been married twice. She wed actor Dane Witherspoon, her co-star in the soap series Santa Barbara, in 1986. Their marriage lasted several months. They had no children together. Witherspoon died at age 56 in March. In 1996, Wright married actor Sean Penn. The two co-starred in State of Grace, which was released in 1990, while she was pregnant with their first child, daughter Dylan Penn, who is now 23. The two are also parents to son Hopper Penn, 21.

Wright filed for divorce from Sean in December 2007. They reconciled in April 2008, then broke up again. Sean filed his own papers seeking a legal separation a year later. After a month, in May 2009, he withdrew his request. Wright filed for divorce again in August 2009. It was finalized almost a year later. 

Wright and Sean worked together several times. They also both starred in the '90s movies She's So Lovely, Loved and the comedy Hurlyburly, which also featured the actress's House of Cards husband, Kevin Spacey. Sean also directed his-then wife in his 1995 movie I'm Still Here and his 2001 film The Pledge.

Us Weekly first reported about Wright and Foster's breakup, citing their "crazy" schedules and their 14-year age difference as factors that contributed to their split.
