Robin Wright is Back and More "Machiavellian" Than Ever in Season 2 of Netflix's House of Cards

DETAILS: As Claire Underwood, the wife of Kevin Spacey's conniving congressman on House of Cards, you make Lady MacBeth look like a piker. Some call her fierce, some sadistic. What do you call her? ROBIN WRIGHT: I liked the way [executive producer] David Fincher described her to me: strong, calculating, Machiavellian. He said, "You have to contain all of those adjectives in a marble bust." If Claire's moving or flailing, she loses her foundation. It's like martial arts—you have to keep your center solid or you'll be knocked over. House of Cards">see more

American Hustle's Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams on Singing, Dancing, Locking Lips, and Building Characters

From left: Jennifer Lawrence as Rosalyn, Amy Adams as Sydney. Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper may have top billing in American Hustle, director David O. Russell's madcap seventies crime epic, but it's the film's knockout dames, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, who ultimately steal the show. Adams plays Sydney, the lover and partner of conman Irving (Bale), while Lawrence plays Rosalyn, Irving's wife, who's poised to spoil his deal with crazed cop Richie (Cooper). Together, they prove why they're two of our finest actresses, inhabiting roles unlike any either star has played before. see more

Woman of the Moment: The To-Do List's Aubrey Plaza

How You Know Her: Aubrey Plaza is the queen of blank stares. Her deadpan April Ludgate made her a fan favorite on Parks and Recreation, a show already saturated with big-name comedic talent.
