    According to a new report, Jennifer Lawrence used distorted numbers to support a recent claim she was underpaid while working on 2013’s American Hustle.
    In an essay published by Lenny Letter, a feminist online newsletter owned by Lena Dunaham, on Oct. 13, Lawrence described her thoughts after discovering through last year’s Sony hack how much less she was making than her male co-stars while working on Hustle.

    Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper both made double working on the film than J-Law, who was recently named Hollywood’s highest-paid actress.

    “I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early,” wrote the star, while lamenting the industry’s gender wage gap.

    The industry publication Deadline now reports Lawrence was the film’s highest paid actor, when looking at the numbers.

    Lawrence worked 19 days and was paid $1.25 million for her work on American Hustle, in addition to receiving $250,000 in deferred compensation. She was also given seven points in profit participation.

    Meanwhile, Christian Bale worked 45 days for $2.5 million upfront and nine points, while Bradley Cooper worked 46 days for $2.5 million and nine points.

    Amy Adams, who worked 45 days on the film, received $1.25 million and seven points, according to Deadline’s Mike Fleming, who concludes, “if anyone has a beef, it would be her.”

    Not only did Lawrence earn more for time worked, but the actress also showed up later in production, after deals had already been made, which led the film’s other stars to make room for her.

    When looking at the math, Lawrence earned about $65 thousand per day working on the film, whereas Bale and Cooper both earned about $55 thousand per day.

    Deadline also reports in 2014, Lawrence made $20 million for the sci-fi film Passengers, which was an estimated $5 million to $7 million more than her co-star, rising male lead Chris Pratt.

    She was the worst part (in terms of acting) in that movie. Bitch was supposed to be playing an older whore but acted like she was fresh out of college. Bale, Adams, and Cooper held that whole thing together.

    Bitch needs to shut up before she pisses off the Weinstein and stops getting calls. She's highly replaceable.

    Ha. This is hilarious.
    My wife brought this up the other day and I said, "who knows how many days she worked or when she was brought on to the project or how many points she got. There's a lot of factors that go in to actor compensation "
