Robin Wright reportedly demanded pay equal to that of her "House of Cards" co-star Kevin Spacey -- and got it.

The actress, who plays Claire Underwood, the formidable wife and co-conspirator to Spacey's President Frank Underwood on the Netflix series, said during an event at the Rockefeller Foundation on Tuesday that she was threatening to "go public" if her request wasn't met.

"I was looking at the statistics and Claire Underwood's character was more popular than [Frank's] for a period of time," said Wright, according to the Huffington Post. "So I capitalized on it. I was like, 'You better pay me or I'm going to go public.'"
