She starred alongside Tom Hanks in 1994's "Forrest Gump," which led to her first Golden Globe Award nomination. She went on to nab roles in 1999's "Message in a Bottle" and 2011's "Moneyball" and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." More recently, she made her superhero film debut in 2017's "Wonder Woman" as one of the Amazonian warriors and the same year appeared in "Blade Runner 2049." She earned acclaim playing Claire Underwood on Netflix's political drama "House of Cards" from 2013 to 2018, earning a best actress Golden Globe — becoming the first woman to win for a streaming series — as well as multiple Emmy nods. Her first marriage, to actor Dane Witherspoon, ended the year after "The Princess Bride" came out, and at the end of the '80s, she moved on with Sean Penn, with whom she had two children. They wed in 1996 and endured breakups and makeups until 2009 when they split for good. Following a brief engagement to actor Ben Foster in 2014, Robin romanced French fashion executive Clément Giraudet, to whom she was married from 2018 to 2022.
