The Wright Kind of Evil…

The woman who will stop at nothing to conquer everything

How do we love Claire Underwood? Let us count the ways.. She is positively brilliant, cold, warm, harsh and probably the most cunning woman a t.v. show has ever seen. Did we mention the fact that we are in love with the haircut? We can’t get enough. Here are some of her best looks from the show along with some powerful Underwood quotes. Brace yourselves, Season 3 for House of Cards is in the works…

It’s Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood who propels the show— perhaps partially because Wright has so gracefully molded an inconsistently written role into a complex, conflicted character. In many senses, Claire is painted as Frank’s willing partner in crime, her coldly formidable yet also seemingly earnest exterior complementing his exaggerated Southern gregariousness. (The fact that Claire cast off her Texas accent years ago underlines the artifice behind both spouses’ public image.) If we didn’t grasp her ruthlessness when she fired an entire staff without blinking an eye last season, round two kicked off with Claire blackmailing poor, pregnant Gillian into dropping her wrongful termination lawsuit and taking over as head of the Clean Water Initiative.

Frank says of Claire: “I love that woman, I love her more than sharks love blood.

HOUSE OF CARDS

You know what Francis said to me when he proposed? I remember his exact words. He said, ‘Claire, if all you want is happiness, say no. I’m not gonna give you a couple of kids and count the days until retirement. I promise you freedom from that. I promise you’ll never be bored.’ You know, he was the only man – and there were a lot of others who proposed – but he was the only one who understood me. He didn’t put me on some pedestal. He knew that I didn’t want to be adored or coddled. So he took my hand and put a ring on it. Because he knew I’d say yes. ~Claire Underwood
