There's not a whole lot of sex in "House of Cards."
In the newly released third season, I can recall only one sex scene between Frank Underwood and Claire Underwood, the character played by Robin Wright.
Thankfully for Wright, art has not imitated life in this instance.
This much was evident when Wright spoke to Vanity Fair about her love life and relationship with actor Ben Foster.
Wright, who is 48, is engaged to 34-year-old Foster.
Of their relationship, Wright said,
I've never been happier in my life than I am today. Perhaps it's not ladylike [to say], but I've never laughed more, read more, or come more than with Ben. He inspires me to be the best of myself. There's so much to learn. It's endless. How great! It took me a long time to grow up. Love is possible as life is possible.
That must be a real slap in the face to Sean Penn, Wright's former husband. However, Wright made sure to praise Penn in her interview.
I believe we were together not only to have our beautiful children but to learn how to love.
That's a nice consolation for Penn, I suppose. But, it looks like Foster is the real winner here.
