As we reported Sunday, actress Robin Wright was quite pleased with herself, boasting how she didn’t give “straight answers” to innocuous questions a Washington Post reporter asked her ahead of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Inside the Hilton ladies bathroom, Wright told another Post reporter that she had made “your girls” “so mad” when they attempted to interview her, and that it was “so funny.” She alleged they wanted her to answer “conservative questions.”

We were so curious how this interview actually went down, and as luck would have it, there’s video. Her responses may seem nothing more than a little odd or off-putting until her bathroom explanation that she was intentionally being uncooperative.

The Democrats debate Thursday. Get caught up on the race.
The big questions after New Hampshire, from The Post's Dan Balz
Can Bernie Sanders cut into Hillary Clinton's strength in the minority community and turn his challenge into a genuine threat? And can any of the Republicans consolidate anti-Trump sentiment in the party in time to stop the billionaire developer and reality-TV star, whose unorthodox, nationalistic campaign has shaken the foundations of American politics?
Clinton in New Hampshire: 2008 vs. 2015
Hillary Clinton did about as well in N.H. this year as she did in 2008, percentage-wise. In the state's main counties, Clinton performed on average only about two percentage points worse than she did eight years ago (according to vote totals as of Wednesday morning) -- and in five of the 10 counties, she did as well or better.
