Since Jennifer Lawrence penned her essay on the wage gap between men and women in Hollywood, some actors have come out in support of her ideas. Others like Jeremy Renner decided that it wasn’t his responsibility to ensure that actresses receive equal pay in the world of entertainment. Now, “Hunger Games” actor Josh Hutcherson is weighing in.
Hutcherson, whose new short film The Rusted premieres Thursday night on AOLÃ¢â¬â¢s BUILD series, told The Huffington Post that he thinks the essay is great. Ã¢â¬ÅI think itÃ¢â¬â¢s insane what happens with womenÃ¢â¬â¢s pay. To even say those words, feels so stupid. To have to say the words Ã¢â¬ËwomenÃ¢â¬â¢s pay.Ã¢â¬â¢ Like, it just sounds ignorant.Ã¢â¬Â
The actor continued, Ã¢â¬Å[Jennifer] is great. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s the perfect person to speak on that. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s very powerful, sheÃ¢â¬â¢s very influential and she says what she thinks. And I think she makes a lot of great points Ã¢â¬â her and Amy Schumer. TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re doing a project together now, and they both have that personality of being yourself and accepting it, and I think JenÃ¢â¬â¢s in a great position to fight for something like equal pay.Ã¢â¬Â
He’s got a point, doesn’t he?
