There has been a long, ongoing debate about the gender pay gap in Hollywood, with the men still getting paid a lot more than the women, which also happens in a lot of different jobs all over the world. Hollywood superstar Jennifer Lawrence was one of the stars to speak out about the gender pay gap, urging a change to happen. Well, Jennifer has now been talking about the issue, claiming that she has been experiencing a positive change ever since, although there is still more to do.
Lawrence was talking about the improvements she has been experiencing, when she said, " It's much easier for me now to be paid fairly. The reason I spoke out about it was really -- we're in the industry, everybody is looking at us, if we're going through this, every woman in the world is going through this.''
She then went on to add, "But the real problem is the normalisation of it. It's the reason why your agents don't think twice about paying you a third of your [co-star's paycheque] because it's been so normalized for so long."
As far as her acting career is concerned, Jennifer Lawrence will next be seen on the big screen, starring alongside the likes of Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts, Joely Richardson,Ciaran Hinds, Mary-Louise Parker, and Joel Edgerton, in the new movie Red Sparrow, which has been directed by Francis Lawrence and is set to hit the big screen on March 2, 2018 in both the US and the UK.
