Jeff Daniels has a good piece of advice to Jennifer Lawrence and any others who are shedding light on the wage gapp in Hollywood: Get what you can!
Jeff has been in the acting game for quite some time and he admits that the pay model for stars in Tinseltown is far from perfect.
Ã¢â¬ÅLook, get what you can get,Ã¢â¬Â he said. Ã¢â¬ÅCertainly women have had a tougher time of it, [I] absolutely agree with it. However, IÃ¢â¬â¢ve stood next to big stars who are making a hell of a lot more money than I am. But I can relate, I can relate.Ã¢â¬Â
The Newsroom actor added that the unfortunate reality is that entertainment is Ã¢â¬Åa business, run by people who have three or four sets of books.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅWelcome to Hollywood!Ã¢â¬Â he joked. Ã¢â¬ÅBut if youÃ¢â¬â¢re Jennifer [Lawrence] or Jessica [Chastain] and you have the leverage, use it. Get what you can get.Ã¢â¬Â
Jessica Chastain also said that the public’s perception of the wage gap doesn’t even begin to cover it. She said, “There’s also misinformation out there. Someone wrote a report about how much I made for ‘The Martian’, and I made less than a quarter of that.”
