She made the transition to film, starring in the romantic comedy fantasy adventure film The Princess Bride (1987), the fantasy-comedy Toys (1992), the epic romantic comedy-drama Forrest Gump (1994) (earning her a Golden Globe Award nomination), the romantic drama Message in a Bottle (1999), the superhero drama-thriller Unbreakable (2000), the historical drama The Conspirator (2010), the biographical sports drama Moneyball (2011), and the mystery thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011).
She also stars as Claire Underwood in House of Cards, for which she has been nominated three times for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, and for which she won the Golden Globe in 2014 for Best Actress – Television Series Drama, making her the first actress to win a Golden Globe for an online-only web television series.

Penn subsequently filed for legal separation in April 2009, but withdrew the petition in May. On August 12, 2009, Wright filed for divorce once more, declaring she had no plans to reconcile.
