Bundled up against the cold, Robin Wright and Ben Foster were barely recognizable as they made their way through the streets of London’s Soho district in early March.

The tactless remark has some pals concerned that the 'Princess Bride' star jumped back with Ben as a matter of pride. “I know that hurt Robin,” said the insider.
