When Jennifer Lawrence found out she was paid less than the boys, she wasn't mad at Sony. She was mad at herself.By Cody LaGrow | October 13, 2015
It seems Jennifer Lawrence is living a scene straight out of "American Hustle." She's talking business, and her candor may make you fall out of your chair.
The 25-year-old actress recently broke her silence about the Sony hack that happened last year, which revealed that she and Amy Adams earned less than their "American Hustle" male co-stars. The leaked info put her at the forefront of the discussion about the wage gap in Hollywood.
Lawrence wrote in an essay for Lenny: "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. I got mad at myself. ... I didn't want to seem 'difficult' or 'spoiled.' ... I’m over trying to find the 'adorable' way to state my opinion and still be likable!'"
