Rooney Mara: “I’ve been in films where I’ve found out my male co-star got paid double what I got paid" http://t.co/PRBv5QfRbC— Melissa Silverstein (@melsil) 16. Oktober 2015
“I’ve been in films where I’ve found out my male co-star got paid double what I got paid, and it’s just a reality of the time that we live in.
To me, it’s frustrating, but at the same time, I’m just grateful to be getting paid at all for what I do.
It’s not fair, but I think about how much teachers are getting paid, or other people who are doing jobs that are so much more important than what I do, and it’s kind of hard to complain about it.
To me, the thing that’s more unfair than the pay is the terminology that’s used to describe actresses who have a point of view, and want to have a voice in their life and their career, and what they choose to do.
I’ve been called horrible things. If a man was acting in the same way that I was acting, it would just be considered normal. To me, that’s the thing I find so frustrating is calling women spoiled brats and bitches. We just want to have a voice in our life, and I don’t think that’s anything that shouldn’t be encouraged in any human.”
