Kevin Spacey Late Show H 2015

Kevin Spacey clarified a crucial fact about House of Cards while on Wednesday's Late Show.

"Who do you think you're talking to when you talk right to the camera? Is it like a close confidant?" asked host Stephen Colbert. "The person you're actually talking to of course are people on a ten-hour Netflix binge, sucking on boxed wine."

The star of the Netflix political drama then replied while staring into the camera as Frank Underwood does, "This is the truth form the very beginning. When I'm looking directly into that camera, I'm talking to one person, and one person only. And that is Donald Trump. ... Now, it all starts to make sense."

And when asked if the plot is ever too unrealistic, Spacey said, "There have been times when I'll leave the set and we'll have shot a particular storyline, and I'll think, 'Man, this is really pushing it.'

"And then I get back to the hotel and I turn on the news. And I think, 'Actually, we're f---ed.'"
