Actor Robin Wright revealed yesterday that she requested – and got – equal footing with Kevin Spacey when it came to her paycheque on the hugley popular NETFLIX original series.
“I was like, ‘I want to be paid the same as Kevin,’” said Wright, who plays Claire Underwood, the sinister counterpart and co-conspirator to Spacey’s President Frank Underwood on Netflix’s popular show. Wright is a producer and occasional director for “House of Cards.”
“I was looking at statistics and Claire Underwood’s character was more popular than [Frank’s] for a period of time. So I capitalized on that moment. I was like, ‘You better pay me or I’m going to go public,’” Wright said with her trademark blinding-white grin. “And they did.”
Good for her. And good for them, for listening.
It’s 2016, for gosh sakes…
