  1. I just don’t believe her. They were right to dump Spacey, however the show should have been cancelled. House of Cards without Frank Underwood is a third rate show. She’s an excellent actress but no Spacey.

  2. Sadly series six tanked… 'we managed to get it finished as planned' – a lie – without Frank it was nothing. Please remember he hasn't admitted to anything and as of today he has been convicted of anything….

  3. I have always really liked his acting but, I don’t think I’ll be watching another movie of his. People, where do we drawl the line.

  4. I think we can we all agree… Me Too has taken on a bigger meaning.. Young boys also.. Let's see how this one shakes out.. Innocent until proven guilty..

  5. Robin translated: "I know that Hollywood expects judgment before due court process, so I'm going to respond with vague YET SLIGHTLY JUDGMENTAL responses. Because I'm a coward."

  6. I don't think it was fair of the interviewer to ask Robin Wright if she's experienced abuse or sexual harassment. Nobody should have to talk about it unless they choose to, and asking a question like that puts her on the spot. How can you ask such a loaded question that could bring up a lot of trauma so casually? Just seems very unsympathetic and crass.

  7. "Fascinating interview." That's one word for it.. Watching her gush to Stephen Colbert in May 2017 about working with Spacey , correcting Stephen, that she was the Vice President, and joking that Trump left them w/o ideas for sn 6 , is QUITE different from her statements here. She went on Colbert again, in Oct. 2018 & said that they "had to do one more season for viewer closure & to pay the crew." How hard is it to be honest?

  8. What a waste of good acting. you don't see it much these days. I know m exaggerating but u don't see it everywhere now. If he is a bad guy so be it but others they are not pretty either. Young including every generation should stop idolizing celebrities and famous people. They are not gods they are humans and they are bad too.

  9. JUDGE NOT UNTIL YOU KNOW ALL THE FACTS. TODAY SHOW LEAVES A LOT TO BE DESIRED JUST LIKE THE REST OF MAIN STREAM MEDIA……

  10. Who really cares about that stumped show house of cards come on man you all are so crazy out of touch and crazy crooked

  11. He deserves to be in prison, if he was attacking young girls he would be. Somehow when it happens to males it’s not taken as serious. I am hoping eventually he is charged and tried for his crimes. The man is dangerous and I am positive there are many more victims than the ones that have spoken up.

  12. iam sorry to say this but Being a House of cards fan, I want to say that Antony Rapp could have made his allegations after the house of cards would have ended…The plot was totally different before these allegations happened. Surely kevin spacey did something terrible, but for the sake of the story I wish Rapp made the allegations after the show would have ended….*sighs….I am really curious about the ending of the series if Kevin Spacey wasnt fired…

  13. It really shocked me a lot about kevin spacey, he was my favourite actor ever and always thought he was very talented, i admired him a lot. I watched this show because of him. So sad

  14. Tradução em Português do Brasil Sul Americano: Sabe,não importa se eu sou do Brasil ,que eu não nasci nos Estados Unidos!Eu me sinto no dever de ajudar Kevin,pois eu assisto os filmes dele! Eu tenho um filho de nome kevin e o defendo muito!Kevin gosta mais dos outros do que dele mesmo!Kevin,não fica acabando com sua vida se envolvendo em escândalos para agradar e ajudar os outros não,pois não vale a pena,ninguém da valorem gente muito bom!Tradutor in inglês Norte American: You know, it does not matter if I'm from Brazil,If I was not born in the United States! I feel it's my duty to help Kevin, because I watch his movies. I have a son named Kevin and I defend him a lot! Kevin likes more of the others than himself! Kevin Spacey, you do not end your life by getting involved in scandals to please and help others not ,because it's not worth it no Kevin,because very good people nobody valorize

  15. Robin Wright handles herself and the interview with great panache and dignity (and respect for Kevin Spacey's life), unlike the interviewer.

  16. Lol She just like Claire. I don't like how this reporter tryna force her into adding fuel to this fire, she ain't take no bait. I don't know the situation but I still Love Frank/Kevin

  17. Wow. Just catching up with this story. Spacey has been a fantastic actor, its a shame to see his career ending. Hollywood is full of pervs and paedos. They all know what's gone on in the past.

  18. The 6th season was a waste. After they fired him, they should have took their time and made it good. Kevin spacey no doubt should have been fired.

  19. Very sad this amazing series has come to an end. Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright were both fabulous actors with perfectly played rolls in this thrilling tv series – one of the best ever. Sounds like Robin was distancing herself from someone who you would have thought, given their on screen chemistry and charisma, was a close friend off screen, but apparently, and sadly, they're not, at least not now. You could drop the other actors, including Robin brilliance in the show, but without Kevin there is no future House of Cards which is why this excellent show has to come to an end. I wonder whether Robin was ever guilty of overpowering someone – similar to what she refers to Kevin. What Kevin allegedly did by the way was disgusting, but there was no trial or conviction other than trial by media … who declared him GUILTY without trial!

  20. It's really bizarre that co-stars are expected to know each other intimately. They are co-workers, not friends.

  21. This reporters, anchors and journalist this days acting like this things are sooo scandalous… omg so outrage and offended… hipocrites! Specially them are surrounded by power elites and what they get to say… 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

  22. Spacey WAS the show. The last season with Wright as prez was ridiculous. What a sad way to finish such an excellent production.

  23. She is lying. They are all into sexual deviance. They have to go through rituals to even get to that level of fame.

    I question whether she is really even female. Look at that skull! And Spacey looks like an FTM.

  24. I don't care what happened 30 years ago. Have the balls to speak up when it happens. There I said it.
    This Me too Witch Hunt is stupid. An allegation is enough to destroy a man's career, it's absurd.

  25. A friend in need, is a friend you cut off at the knees. This woman is as cold as Lady Macbeth w/ all the charm of nurse Ratchett.

  26. Hmm not surprising Robin didn't know what a puke slimeball Kevin Spacey or Tom Hanks are . What is surprising is that she didn't know what a puke slimeball her own husband Sean Penn was either lol .

  27. Good job on her not getting on the #MeToo train as it turned out. The only case against him was dropped today.

  28. anyone who doesn't understand that what she said was scripted, gone over and written by an attorney and a PR consultant, but also designed as advertising for a desperately failing show is just foolish

  29. She was prepared to this inteview for sure, she couldn't comment about the accusations or speak ill about the network or talk down about the victims and the last question almost made her say something wrong about her co star or the me2 movment but she changed the question into a topic and not a personal experience, if she spoke ill about kevin without proof the network would think twice about hiring her because she could be potentially an accuser and companys are afraid of those kind of women more then kevin type of men.
    She handle it well with saying "I don't know how to comment on that" so to say that she knows that every word could chase her later like a boomerang, and to tell the audience she is not qualified to answer a production company's decisions.that woman could run a country but people would not want to see her in a lead role even in politics.

  30. Under the 'innocent until proven guilty” principle, the guilt of an accused person cannot be presumed and they must be assumed to be innocent until proven otherwise in a court of law and not in a court of media….

  31. All assaults against Kevin Spacey have dropped. Unfortunately, we lost Frank for nothing. And we all know season 6 was how much worst without him

  32. All of a sudden no one knew him personally, no one suspected anything, everyone was in shock,…. really I just dont know what to say.. We need to hold people;e responsible, , be able to call out red flags when we see them, and reach out to offenders before its too late, intervention is a good way and then jail them!!!!

  33. I think she handled it like a lady… All the scandal aside.. The was the best thing I ever saw on TV. I switch on to be entertained not listen to scandalous comments by people that weren't there.. INNOCENT TILL PROVEN GUILTY

  34. I don't like the tone of the Interviewer. Completely disregarding that until there is a verdict Kevin Spacey is innocent until proven otherwise. The Interviewer needs to be schooled that in the United States of America, we enjoy the ''Presumption of Innocence"". Unlike Russia China Iran and North Korea.
