During the panel, Salma wasn’t afraid to share her views on sexism in Hollywood.

“The only kind of movie where women make more than men is the porno industry. It’s simple ignorance,” Salma shared.

    Salma’s only famous because of her huge boobs. Is that sexist?

  • Baseliner

    here we go again! sexism and misogyny are hollywood’s favorite words.

    Props to the adult film industry.

    Ignorance indeed.

    The reason Tom Cruise makes more than Selma Hayek has nothing to do with sexism, it is about box office return. And in the same way, Sandra Bullock makes more than Selma Hayek because she’s amazing. Some actors are have proven to be capable of improving with age.

    A decent argument can be made about paychecks in Hollywood but let’s be honest, these complaints are better suited for private yacht parties rather than towards the blue collar movie-goer and poor independent film makers.
