Amanda Seyfried Was Only Paid 10% of Her Former Male Co-Star's Salary
Amanda Seyfried is the latest female celebrity to open up about the gender wage gap, saying she was once paid significantly less than her male co-star in a movie some years ago.
“A few years ago, on one of my big-budget films, I found I was being paid 10 percent of what my male co-star was getting, and we were pretty even in status,” the 29-year-old actress told The Sunday Times.
“I think people think because I’m easygoing and game to do things, I’ll just take as little as they offer,” Amanda continued. “But it’s not about how much you get, it’s about how fair it is. You have to decide if you’re willing to walk away from something, especially as a woman.”
