Bradley Cooper Reacts to Jennifer Lawrence's Wage Inequality Op-Ed Piece

Bradley Cooper is sharing his thoughts on the op-ed piece that Jennifer Lawrence wrote about wage inequality in Hollywood.

The 40-year-old actor, who is mentioned in the piece, did not read the open letter before the interview took place, but he still shared his thoughts on the topic.

“One thing I could say is that’s interesting because if you think that you only deserve a certain amount and that’s not correct, it’s about changing that mindset and sticking up for yourself the way that Sienna did,” Bradley told E! News. “So that’s a great thing.”

Bradley was referring to his Burnt co-star Sienna Miller, who recently said that she turned down a Broadway play because she was to be paid less than half of what her male co-star was to receive for the same amount of work.

    Bradley is totally right! These entitled feminists always want things to be given to them and the idea that they should earn it themselves will offend them. I’m glad he’s got some balls to call on their bulls**t!

    but at the same time why ppl assume women need less money ?!
    I won’t even comment on JL demands, as I personally think even that she is paid less than her male colleagues,being paid in millions puts you in no place to complain !Seriously how much is enough ?! Is she struggling with paying rent and bills ? Do not give me the bull about representing women in general as in most cases they say ”I was paid that much…I was paid half”. Which means it is personal,not general

    I don’t know if he meant just Jennifer or women in Hollywood or women everywhere, but walking away from a job isn’t done lightheartedly. It almost sounds as if what Sienna did was easy, but I highly doubt it. She had to walk away from that project because negotiations DIDN’T work, and the result was still a salary less than half as that of her counterpart.

    Entitled feminists?
    Ask yourself this: why do women need to negoatiate harder than men for equal pay? why do we need to stick up for ourselves when men don’t have to worry? Men get offered a higher base salary whereas women need to beg for that. why? perhaps “entitled” feminists are doing the right thing by bringing this to attention so we can be E Q U A L.

    An injury to one is an injury to all – but it’s good to have stacks.
    Sometimes it can be “danger money” if the person has to accomplish certain tasks, that can bump up the fee too – eh Red Adair without a care! Who moonlights as Captain Risky?
    Although not always the case today as some people work weekends doing dangerous work and don’t get paid above the award and loading – then again if they did it could class them into a higher tax bracket! Story Pole as a Watchman?
    So this ‘risk money’ was absorbed sometime in the 90′s as an award scheme, basically like working in a coal mine except there are safeguards in an unlikely event. As Bradley said to negotiate for the right pay, as most companies have capped salaries.
