Natalie Portman: Pay “three times less” than Ashton Kutcher, she raises the tone
The actress evokes the stamp that she touched for the romantic comedy “Sex Friends”.
Natalie Portman is the latest actress to speak publicly denouncing sexism in Hollywood. While she is promoting the release of Jackie (in theaters on February 1st), for which she has already received a Golden Globe nomination and BAFTA , the star of 35 years has benefited from a new interview with the US edition of the magazine Marie Claire to raise wage inequality within the film industry.
Six years after the theatrical release of the romantic comedy No Strings Attached , in which she starred with Ashton Kutcher , the Oscar-winning actress revealed as having been paid less than her co-star. ” [Ashton] was paid three times more than me [for the film]. I knew I had not said anything because he is that thing with the ‘replica’ in Hollywood. His were three times I was not as annoyed as I should have been, I mean, we’re paid a lot, so it’s difficult to complain, but the disparity is crazy. compared with men in most professions, women make 80 cents for every dollar invested. in Hollywood actresses are 30 cents on the dollar , “she says.
Currently pregnant with her second child with her husband Benjamin Millepied (the couple is already parents of a small Aleph, 5 years), Natalie Portman says she also will return to work ” as soon as possible ” in interpreting another iconic woman , US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a leading activist in the women’s rights movement, one of the most influential figures in the world. A role which again echoed his remarks on wage inequality, it is said ” frustrated ” lack of evolution in Hollywood. ” We have a very clear problem on the fact that women do not have opportunities. We must find a solution, not perpetuate the problem ,” she said.
