Jennifer Lawrence joins Amanda Seyfreid in verbally making equality protest
Inclusive in a recent essay by Lena Dunham, female actor Jennifer Lawrence joins Amanda Seyfreid in publicly making a protest statement about women actor equality. The cause of such non-equal pay for female actors as opposed to male actors, is most likely however the recent popularity in the last few years, of female lead roles in motions pictures.
Movies make a serious amount of money if they are popular, from the box office, to movie rental, to DVD purchases, merchandising etc (possibly the reason male actors such as Brad Pitt for instance, started their own production companies). Similarly to this recent female actors protest (as they’d (screen writers) been the made the bitches of film making and televsion for like 50 YEARS or so (unlike the few wittle years for Jenny Lawrence – sticking her wittle lip out because she can’t afford to buy her own island yet), Screen writers protested a few years ago, refusing to work if they weren’t paid residuals. Physically protesting in streets as the screen writers did, might be a perquisite for women actors also, however probably not. Said aforementioned joint essay by Jennifer Lawrence and Lena Dunham, is entitled “Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co‑Stars?”. In this essay, Jennifer Lawrence writes – “Based on the statistics, I don’t think I’m the only woman with this issue. Are we socially conditioned to behave this way?” she writes, noting that women have only been able to vote for about a century. “Could there still be a lingering habit of trying to express our opinions in a certain way that doesn’t ‘offend’ or ‘scare’ men?”. Amanda Seyfreid however started the revolt quite a few weeks ago. Amanda Seyfreid’s statement a few weeks ago was somewhat similar. “I think people think that just because I’m easy-going and game to do things I’ll just take as little as they offer …”, Amanda Seyfreid’s warranted complaint read, “It’s not about how much you get, it’s about how fair it is,” she said, adding that female actors in particular “have to decide if you’re willing to walk away from something”.
