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.
â€œLook, get what you can get,â€ he said. â€œCertainly women have had a tougher time of it, [I] absolutely agree with it. However, Iâ€™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.â€
The Newsroom actor added that the unfortunate reality is that entertainment is â€œa business, run by people who have three or four sets of books.â€
â€œWelcome to Hollywood!â€ he joked. â€œBut if youâ€™re Jennifer [Lawrence] or Jessica [Chastain] and you have the leverage, use it. Get what you can get.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.”
