"The Good Wife" star Julianna Margulies has little sympathy for scorned political wives.
"I remember thinking, Get off the stage!" she told More magazine's April issue about watching Silda Spitzer and Dina McGreevey stand humiliated at press conferences as their husbands admitted wrongdoing.
"I couldn't believe the women were gullible enough to get up there, and I couldn't believe that the men could be such assh*les as to ask," she added.
Margulies, who plays a lawyer whose politician husband gets caught up in a sex and corruption scandal, doesn't know if she'd have the strength to stick around if her own real-life partner strayed.
"I don't know if I could do it, because I think I'd be playing [the betrayal] in my head the whole time," the actress, who wed Keith Lieberthal in 2007, said.
"Maybe the Spitzers and the Clintons already had an arrangement ... frankly I don't care. There are some things where you go, 'It's none of your business.'"
