Robin Wright Thinks Trump Is Ruining House of Cards, Too

Robin Wright and Kevin Spacey in House Of Cards

Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his equally chilly wife Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) as they continue to make Washington, D.C., their twisted playground.

A brand new teaser clip has been released, showing First Lady Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) addressing the nation.

In the Netflix series the 51-year-old plays the ruthless first lady to Spacey's scheming USA president.

During a Variety panel at the Cannes Film Festival, the actor, who portrays the icy, powerful Claire Underwood on the show, candidly shared that the upcoming season might not be as dramatic as the current political landscape. She demanded equal pay for her work on HoC like a total #girlboss and recently joined Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, and many others in writing an open letter to world leaders asking them to take a stand on girls' education. Speaking about feminism, she added: "The problem is feminism today is such a derogatory and diva-like word (but) feminism means equality, period. They said, 'You're never going to be tall enough to sign with Wilhelmina and IMG; you can do bathing suits, beauty, lingerie'".

Despite being on a streaming series, Wright is a traditionalist when it comes to big screen entertainment. "It's not fair to the filmmakers".

"The message of this movie is not just female empowerment - it's about love and justice and what a great message to spread to our little ones", said Wright. After Wright took her place in a small chair in front of the audience of about 20 reporters, the conversation quickly turned to American politics.

The Vice Presidential nominee said: "I've been meaning to talk with you". "So I kind of became Mama General: "Good girls, go, 15 more!' We were doing horseback riding in the morning, learning how to canter with sheathes and arrows". Actual wonks say D.C. politics really look a lot more like Veep, HBO's cutting comedy-all bumbling gaffes and pissed-off politicians getting through one embarrassing crisis to the next.
