Robin Wright Distances Herself From Kevin Spacey on Today

Netflix

"I could never imagine [that] anyone else I know would do something like that to a 14-year-old boy". In a teaser for the interview with journalist Savannah Guthrie, Wright revealed she didn't really know the man behind the actor.

Actor Anthony Rapp was the first to come forward against Spacey in October, claiming the actor sexually harassed him when Spacey was 26 and Rapp was 14.

Pearce had spoken out about working with Spacey on Australian talk show Interview earlier this month.

"I don't even know how to reach him", Wright said.

Netflix series House Of Cards, in which Spacey played the lead role, had him written out, and director Ridley Scott had him cut from All The Money In The World and drafted in Christopher Plummer as a replacement.

"I think that Wendi doing what she did served as enough of a distraction that maybe he didn't see us", said reporter Rachael Pacella, who was in the newsroom when the gunman, who had a longstanding grudge against the newspaper, opened fire, killing Winters and four others.

Asked if it was the right call to jettison Spacey from the Netflix political soap, Wright answered, "I don't know how to comment on that". But the actress did add that the temperature at the time was feverish. She noted they had a "respectful, professional relationship", that Spacey was "so great with me", and that the two "never socialized" outside of work. But I think at that time, the shock was so intense all over the nation for many reasons, many stories many people. "This is a bigger, broader issue, I think, which is seduction".

Wright said she's experienced harassment as an actress in Hollywood. "So, we just need to shift the paradigm".

The sixth and final season of "House of Cards" debuts on Netflix this fall.
