Another figurative name has co-joined the league to hold the flag against wage disparity in Hollywood. Jennifer Lawrence’s rebellious essay recently digs out the reality about dispute over remuneration and day by day, the voices are getting weights as Jennifer is poured with support from peers for the stand.
David O. Russell, who directed Jennifer to an Oscar win in “Silver Linings Playbook”, “American Hustle”, and the upcoming “Joy”, has expressed the same moral over sexism and pay inequality that the actress has already proclaimed about. Russell has queued up after Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner, who supported their female colleague for the right vision.
Gender pay gap has waved tides in the Hollywood canvas and apart from Jennifer, we heard Rachel Weisz and Jessica Chastain utter the same protest. Well, Bradley Cooper recently told Reuters he’s begun working with his female co-stars to negotiate equitable salaries for new projects and now Russell is the latest “American Hustle” alum asked about Lawrence’s essay and its implications.
Lawrence’s original essay didn’t just focus on the inequality of pay but also the difficulties that women have in negotiating without being labeled as difficult. Russell and Lawrence have collaborated again for Miracle Mop biopic “Joy“, which is already being tipped for Oscar success.
Last Wednesday, Russell opined that he always supported equality and believes in the spirit of Lawrence, who has uttered true facts after the Sony Hack controversy. Interestingly, though the actress did not explicitly name Russell’s directorial venture “American Hustle” in her essay but initially, her frustration revolved around the particular movie. To elaborate, the Sony Hack reveals the pay gap between male and female stars in “American Hustle” but now, when David himself stands beside the actress the journey surely gets a new turn.
