After surviving what she called a "devastating" divorce from Oscar-winner Sean Penn, Robin Wright says in an interview with The Telegraph Sunday that she feels her life and career are back on track.

She said a Golden Globe win in January and new fiancée, "Lone Survivor" star Ben Foster, have helped in the healing process.

Wright earned a part of entertainment history in January, becoming the first actress to win a Golden Globe for an online series when she captured the Best Actress in a Television Series award for her role as calculating Claire Underwood in Netflix's "House of Cards" opposite Kevin Spacey.

She met Foster in 2011 while making the film "Rampart" and said that at the movie's premiere he asked her out on the couple's first date.

"I'd never, ever been asked out on a date before," Wright told The Telegraph. "Never. I was frickin' married my whole life, and even before that I hadn't been asked out."

Wright told People magazine in January that they are now in engaged but have not set a date. She said she is still connected with Penn through their children.

"Divorce in and of itself, and with children, is devastating," Wright told The Telegraph. "Worse than that, one of the reasons why we got back together and broke up so much was trying to keep the family together. Sean sees the kids. They see him. They see me. We've all got our own lives."

Wright, the "Forrest Gump" star, and Penn's children include Dylan, 22, and Hopper, 20.

Foster will be Wright's third marriage. She was married to actor Dane Witherspoon for two years, divorcing in in 1988.

While being a hardcore fan of Zumba to stay in shape, Wright admitted to The Telegraph that she also does "sprinkles" of Botox.

"You bet. Everybody ... does it," Wright said. "I suppose I can't say 'everybody' because I don't know for sure, but come on. It's just the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year. I think most women do 10 units, but that freezes the face and you can't move it."
