Jennifer Lawrence Discusses Gender Wage Gap in New Essay


In an essay published in Lena Dunham’s feminist Lenny newsletter, Jennifer Lawrence opened up about the gender wage gap and how it affected her salary for American Hustle.

In the essay titled, “Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-stars?” Lawrence shared how Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner all made powerful deals while she gave up early.

“I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early. I didn’t want to keep fighting over millions of dollars that, frankly, due to two franchises, I don’t need,” she wrote.
