Jennifer Lawrence Slams Gender Wage Gap in Candid Essay: 'I'm Over Trying to Find the "Adorable" Way to State My Opinion'

Posted by Admin on October 15, 2015 at 8:40 AM


Jennifer Lawrence is giving folks a piece of her mind.

 

The Oscar winner has spoken out about gender pay inequality in Hollywood – and she used Lena Dunham's Lenny newsletter to do it.

 

In an essay titled "Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co‑Stars?", Lawrence writes: "When the Sony hack happened and I found out how much less I was being paid than the lucky people with d----, I didn't get mad at Sony," the 25-year-old actress writes, alluding to her deal working on American Hustle. "I got mad at myself."

 

Although Lawrence does not cite the film's title in the essay, she name-checks costars Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper for negotiating more "powerful deals."

 

Lawrence adds that she "failed as a negotiator" because she "gave up early."

 

"But if I'm honest with myself, I would be lying if I didn't say there was an element of wanting to be liked that influenced my decision to close the deal without a real fight," she writes. "I didn't want to seem 'difficult' or 'spoiled.' "

 

Lawrence goes on to describe her self-proclaimed failure to negotiate as a "young-person thing" and an element of her personality she's "been working against for years."

 

"Based on the statistics, I don't think I'm the only woman with this issue. Are we socially conditioned to behave this way?" she writes, noting that women have only been able to vote for about a century. "Could there still be a lingering habit of trying to express our opinions in a certain way that doesn't 'offend' or 'scare' men?"

 

 

 

She then recalls a time when she gave her opinion "in a clear and no-b------- way" to a man she was working with – "actually, he was working for me," she clarifies – and received criticism.

 

"I'm over trying to find the 'adorable' way to state my opinion and still be likable!" the Silver Linings Playbook actress writes. "F--- that. I don't think I've ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It's just heard."
