Robin Wright took a stand for equal pay in the workplace.

On Tuesday, the House of Cards star told a roomful of media, activists and philanthropists at the Rockefeller Foundation that she made a bold move after learning that costar Kevin Spacey, 56, was earning $500,000 – nearly $100,000 more than her $420,000-per-episode contract, adding up to a 16 percent disparity in their salaries.

Wright, 50, plays first lady female counterpart to Spacey's President Frank Underwood on the hit series, recalls that she demanded producers level out her compensation with Spacey's.

No matter what you think about the current president, it's hard to throw shade at these fictional commanders-in-chief on their big day (TV and movie presidents totally count, right?).
