Robin Wright Says She ‘Didn’t Know’ The Real Kevin Spacey
— TODAY (@TODAYshow) July 9, 2018
Robin Wright was just as shocked to hear about Kevin Spacey’s sexual harassment claims as the rest of the world.
“Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut and in between setups where we would giggle,” she said in a Today interview. “I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.”
Robin stars as the first lady-turned-president Claire Underwood on House Of Cards, which closed in its sixth season.
“We were co-workers really, we didn’t socialize outside of work,” she added. “We had a respectful, professional relationship. He was so great with me. He was never disrespectful to me. That’s my personal experience. That’s the only thing that I feel I have the right to talk about.”
When asked if she herself has experienced sexual misconduct: “Of course, who hasn’t?” she replied. “This is a bigger, broader issue … Seduction — I don’t care who you are, it’s about power. And once you overpower someone, that person then begins [to be] vulnerable.”
