    Jessica Chastain joins chorus of stars slamming gender wage gap
    10/17/15 10:51 AM

    By Adam Howard
    Actress Jessica Chastain is joining a growing chorus of Hollywood stars shining a light on wage disparity in Hollywood.

    In a recent interview with Huffington Post, the Oscar-nominated actress revealed that she was paid $18 million less than her male co-star Matt Damon for the blockbuster film “The Martian.” “ … Someone wrote an article once that said I made a certain amount of money for ‘The Martian.’ I made less than a quarter of that in reality,” Chastain said. “And so people are already saying, ‘Well, she’s making a lot less than her male co-stars because she’s making this.’ I made less than a quarter of that in reality, so there is a huge wage gap in the industry.”

    Chastain’s remarks come on the heels of a widely circulated open letter written by A-list actress Jennifer Lawrence, entitled “Why do I make less than my male co-stars?” In that piece, Lawrence admitted to discovering she was paid substantially less for the hit film “American Hustle” than the male stars of the film when the studio that released the project, Sony, was hacked last year. “I didn’t get mad at Sony. I got mad at myself,” Lawrence wrote. “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 added.

    Lawrence’s candid commentary drew widespread praise, with even Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton singing her praises:

    "Brava, Jennifer. It's hard to speak up against inequity and risk being unpopular—but equal pay matters for us all." - Hillary

    Although Lawrence is currently the highest paid female performer in Hollywood, according to Forbes, she still makes $30 million less than the highest paid male, actor Robert Downey, Jr.

    As for Chastain, she has a long history of speaking out about the double standards of the movie business. Earlier this year, she called out the lack of racial diversity in Hollywood productions duiring an acceptance speech at the Critic’s Choice Awards and she also has spoken out about the hyper-sexualization of women in superhero roles.

    “It’s wonderful that people are starting to talk about the wage gap, and really [admit] that it’s an issue,” she told Huffington Post. “Women can talk about it, [but] it actually moves me a lot to hear men talk about it as well. I think the film industry is an incredible group of people … and so the more that we all discuss it as a community, that’s what I think is going to help.”

    How are these women going to afford their own private islands if this Patriarchal Society keeps ripping them off? :tears::tears::tears::tears:

    A hot redhead is usually my weakness. But an uppity bitch like this is an instant De-erection. And that's saying a lot coming from me.

    Go wash some dishes, make your fella a sandwich and stop fucking complaining about every little thing.

    This crazy bitch thinks she should be paid what the star is paid. Nobody paid their fifteen bucks to see Jessica Chastain in a movie except maybe her momma.

    People who can deliver an audience get paid, Julia Roberts in her time was paid as much as a popular male lead. Nobody is seeing "The Martian" because Chastain is in it.

    one could argue a very hot girl in hollywood can get acting jobs easier than a very skilled non-hot male.

    The only movie genre anyone gives a shit about the female cast is porn.
