The records disclosed Jennifer and her American Hustle co-star Amy Adams were paid significantly much less compared to their male colleagues Bradley Cooper and also Christian Bundle, and also the leak reignited the dispute about the gender pay gap in the motion picture industry.

Lawrence remained quiet on the topic until Tuesday when a post she composed, labelled Why Do I Make Much less Compared to My Male Co-Stars?, was published in Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter publication.

For some factor, I just can not envision somebody saying that regarding a male.”
