“Hunger Games” star, Jennifer Lawrence had released a fair share of her thought about gender wage gap and Josh Hutcherson can’t help but to feel proud of his co-star. Read on!
According to People, Josh Hutcherson expressed his big support to his co-star Jennifer Lawrence when the latter wrote a frank message pointing out the recent issue on gender pay gap in Hollywood.
In his MTV News interview, Hutcherson admitted that he thinks Lawrence’ move was incredible. He said, “I thought it was incredible. I’m really proud of her, and happy.”
The 25-year-old Oscar winner gave the public a piece of her mind regarding the controversial inequality when it comes to payment in Hollywood.
In her written letter for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Newsletter titled: “Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-Stars?” Lawrence pinpointed that she’s not actually mad at Sony, instead, she felt mad at herself.
Lawrence went on by saying she would be lying if she will pretend to not like other male actors- Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner, who successfully had their negotiation well done. She just choose to shut her mouth to not be branded as “spoiled brat.”
“But if I’m honest with myself, I would be lying if I didn’t say there was an element of wanting to be liked that influenced my decision to close the deal without a real fight. I didn’t want to seem ‘difficult’ or ‘spoiled.’”—Lenny via People.
The actress went on by saying that she’s done with finding a way to adorably stating her opinion.
“This might have NOTHING to do with my v*gina, but I wasn’t completely wrong when another leaked Sony email revealed a producer referring to a fellow lead actress in a negotiation as a ‘spoiled brat.’ For some reason, I just can’t picture someone saying that about a man.” –Lenny via People
Moreover, Josh Hutcherson was not the only one who admires the way Jennifer Lawrence addressed the issue because even Lena Dunham praised the actress.
According to ABC News, Dunham called Lawrence’s essay as “brave and beautiful” as the message clearly state what the actress wanted to say.
