Guy Pearce Says His "Handsy" Comments Regarding Kevin Spacey Were Mischaracterized

Guy Pearce Says His

Asked if Netflix made the right move by ousting Spacey previous year, Wright told Guthrie, "I don't know how to comment on that. We were co-workers, we never socialized outside of work". He was so great with me and was never disrespectful to me, so that's my personal experience. When Guthrie asked if Wright herself had ever experienced harassment during her long tenure in show biz, Wright laughed and said, "Of course".

At the end of season five, Spacey's character, Frank Underwood, quit the Oval Office, allowing his wife Claire (Wright) to take the presidency.

Actor Anthony Rapp instigated a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey, when he came forward past year.

"House of Cards" star Robin Wright is opening up for the first time about the downfall of her co-star Kevin Spacey, which came after Spacey was accused of sexual assault by one man who claimed the actor made an advance on him when he 14 and Spacey was 26.

Wright said she hasn't heard from him since he was sacked from their hit Netflix show and that "I don't even know how to reach him".

"The shock was so intense all over the nation for many reasons, many stories, many people", she explained. She says they would giggle between scenes and he was always professional. "This is a bigger, broader issue, I think, which is seduction".

He was subsequently axed from the hit Netflix show, making way for Wright to take the reins. "And this previous year, I think, has shined a light in a new way to allow us to start a new conversation". "This previous year I think has shined a light in a new way to allow us to start a new conversation, so we just need to shift the paradigm".

The actor was sacked from Netflix's House of Cards following accusations that he made sexual advancements towards a minor in 1986.
