Robin Wright Rightly Demands and Gets Equal Pay for 'House of Cards'

Robin Wright is now being paid the same amount as Kevin Spacey, her costar on Netflix's House of Cards. But it took her asking for it and the actress negotiated her salary in a way that would make her House of Cards' character, Claire Underwood, proud.

Let's go ...

"I was like, 'I want to be paid the same as Kevin," Wright said. Wright's character, Claire Underwood, is married to Spacey's U.S. President Frank Underwood. The couple are equally cunning as they are conniving in their political and personal pursuits on the show.

"It was a perfect paradigm. There are very few films or TV shows where the male, the patriarch, and the matriarch are equal. And they are in House of Cards," Wright said."
