Bradley Cooper Voices For Wage Gap, Initiates Action To Remove Line From Female Co Stars
Hollywood witnesses many a female stars to voice against sexism and partial bias that the showbiz world possesses for male actors. The protest mainly revolves around the imbalance of remuneration that creates a distinct line between the so-called stronger and weaker gender. Earlier, Rachel Weisz has uttered protest and currently actresses Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence spoke out about the wage disparity.
But now the news gets another twist, as the famous actor Bradley Cooper joins the girls’ league for the right cause. Maybe Irina Shayk won’t mind, but we can’t resist expressing our love to the man for his bold step that gives his female co stars heaps of respect. While talking to Reuters, Cooper urges to start a financial balance immediately and considers the wage gap as a disrespectful approach.
Well, last week Jessica Chastain was promoting her spooky feature “Crimson Peak” and addressed about the fact and even made her last release before a question. Her last onscreen venture and Scott’s extraordinary directorial “The Martian” came into question, as reportedly the male protagonist Matt Damon made $25 million for the film, while the female lead Chastain managed to grab only $7 million.
Interestingly, earlier this year Jennifer Lawrence has made a creepy comment to determine the picture of wage difference and threw the arrows to her “American Hustle” male co-stars—including Cooper. She became aware of the pay difference during the Sony Picture email hacks last year. Even Lawrence published her essay to highlight the issue. Whatever the case, Bradley Cooper stands by his female colleague and expressed it’s quite embarrassing to foresee the difference and is pay scale.
Cooper’s resolution follows the declaration that his “American Hustle” co stars Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams were paid notably less than he and the other male stars, regardless of multiple Oscars nominations and a win between them. He said he will now discuss pay for all actors involved in a film during pre-production deals. Some of other reputed figures acted upon the issue and gave effort to eliminate the pay disparity. Marc Benioff, the CEO Salesforce, drew a balance in the wage irrespective of gender in his workforce. Gianmarco Monsellato, CEO of French Law firm Taj, similarly tracked compensation and promotion to reduce unfair pay gap between men and women.
