Jennnifer Lawrence talks tough on gender pay inequality

When the Sony hack happened,” she wrote, “I didn’t get mad at Sony. I got mad at myself. I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early.


These were the words of  actress Jennifer Lawrence  in an essay written on Tuesday published in Lena Dunham's newsletter , Lenny where she spoke out against gender pay inequality , describing how she felt when leaked documents exposed by the Sony Pictures hack showed that she had been paid less than her male colleagues on the film “American Hustle.”

Surprisingly, Lawrence is the world highest paid actress according to Forbes , so you might ask why is she complaining?


According to her, “Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, and Bradley Cooper all fought and succeeded in negotiating powerful deals for themselves,” she wrote of her co-stars. “If anything, I’m sure they were commended for being fierce and tactical, while I was busy worrying about coming across as a brat and not getting my fair share.”

Lenny has been in publication for only a couple of weeks, but it has already recruited some of the most visible women in politics and entertainment to grapple with issues related to feminism, sexuality and sexism.
