31-year-old Jennifer Lawrence, who recently starred in the film "Don't look up" with Leonardo DiCaprio, shared her thoughts about why her colleague on this tape earned five million dollars more than her (Lawrence's fee was $ 25 million, and DiCaprio — 30), despite the fact that her name in the credits goes first. She told about this in an interview with Variety.
Lawrence did not see any injustice in this difference. Speaking about unequal pay, the actress said that DiCaprio brings in more box office receipts than she does, and insisted that she was incredibly lucky and very happy with the contract.
Nevertheless, the Oscar-winning star noted that there is still a problem of unequal pay for men and women in Hollywood.
It is extremely embarrassing to ask about equal pay. And if you ask a question about something that seems unequal, they will answer that it is not gender inequality at all, but they will not be able to tell you what exactly,
The difference in fees between Lawrence and DiCaprio became known in September, when Variety published a list of the highest-paid stars of the film industry. In a new interview, the actress hinted that she learned about Leo's fee from the media.
Other actresses have also talked about unequal pay in Hollywood. For example, Michelle Williams earned less than a thousand dollars for her role in the film "All the Money in the World", while her colleague Mark Wahlberg earned $ 1.5 million. Then Williams was shocked by this fact, and Wahlberg, after learning about the huge difference in salaries, donated his fee to the charity Time's Up, which helps victims of harassment and sexual violence.
