It was fiction meets reality when actress Robin Wright, who plays “evil” First Lady in ‘House of Cards,’ introduced real life “good” FLOTUS Michelle Obama at the recently held MORE Magazine Impact Awards.
President Barack Obama’s wife, who has garnered a spotless image as first lady and is MORE July issue guest editor, was the keynote speaker at a Newseum ladies’ luncheon, the Politico reported.
She started by thanking Wright for her introduction and for her humanitarian work on behalf of Congo, and said that she was inspired by the actress, quickly adding but not from her character Claire Underwood.
Obama talked about her vision for her initiative Let Girls Learn, which is aimed at promoting the importance of educating girls worldwide.
Among the 130 attendees at the event were Cokie Roberts, Capricia Marshall, Google’s Susan Molinari, Judy Woodruff, Peace Corps director Carrie Hessler-Radelet, Ann Stock, National Geographic editor Susan Goldberg and MORE’s Washington editor Betsy Fischer Martin.
