“I’m over trying to find the “adorable” way to state my opinion”.
Jessica Chastain and Gwyneth Palthrow also commented on the essay.
“I’m proud of her,” said Chastain. “Sometimes when you’re doing well, you’re afraid to say something’s wrong because then there’s going to be a bunch of people out there going ‘OK, well, you’re a big old movie star.’ But it doesn’t matter.”
“There’s no excuse,” she added. “There’s no reason why she should be doing a film with other actors and get paid less than her male co-stars. It’s completely unfair. It’s not right. It’s been happening for years and years and years. I think it’s brave to talk about it. I think everyone should talk about it.”
“I think it was very brave of her to articulate it like that,” Paltrow told ET at the La Mer Celebrates 50 Years of an Icon event. “It’s fascinating because part of the issue is that women don’t feel entitled to talk about a gender gap.”
Good to see these celebrities supporting Jen’s essay.
