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.

Elvis/Nixon turns the most requested photograph in the national archives – showing an iconic handshake between the King of Rock and Roll and the President of the United States – into a hilariously weird film that highlights the lighter side of two very powerful men.

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?).
Morgan Freeman's first term was in 1998's Deep Impact, in which he played President Beck, the man tasked with seeing the nation through a comet impact that reduced most of the world to rubble.
Michael Douglas swept Annette Bening off her feet (and audiences along with her) as President Andrew Shepherd in The American President. Both a critical and a popular success, the film grossed more than $100 million at the box office, and the Aaron Sorkin-penned screenplay served as an inspiration for the West Wing series Sorkin went on to write.
