Actress Robin Wright, who plays Claire Underwood on the hit Netflix production “House of Cards,” proclaimed in a recent Q&A with Capitol File magazine that “D.C. is more corrupt than Hollywood.”

One of the details that caused her to arrive at such a conclusion reportedly came from a “senior person” in the Obama administration, who told her that — like on the show — reporters really do sleep with their D.C. sources.
That apparently wasn’t all she learned while researching what goes on in Washington, D.C., while researching her role as a powerful politician’s wife. She just didn’t reveal everything she was told.
“D.C. is more corrupt than Hollywood. It really is. It’s more sleazy than Hollywood… how much infidelity goes on,” Wright said.
The entire second season of “House of Cards” was released exclusively on Netflix last week and has received very positive reviews.
