Jennifer echoed Patricia‘s sentiments on stage and also joked about playing the younger version of her in a film.

“I love that she stood up for getting a conversation started and a dialogue going. I’m going to go home and go to change.org/era!” she told the crowd at the party, presented by MAC Cosmetics.

Check out all that Jennifer had to say in a JustJared.com exclusive video from the event…

    Fraudalent. Why wasn’t the only young girl out here making bank with a heavy Oscar on her top shelf talking about this before? All of a sudden she cares about equality. Way to turn a situation into your favor. I don’t buy it.

    Jennifer Lawrence is making a lot of money and at the top of her career…. and she is doing good for women. However, I think she is overrated like Meryl Streep has been all these years. http://www.beenbitten.com/is-jennifer-lawrence-as-bad-as-meryl-streep/

    Stop putting her on the spot because she can’t really say much because of her contract. She probably has something similar to Ke$ha’s.

  • girl93

    PR girl. All is about PR.

  • lele

    She is overrated

  • Courtney

    Think again.

  • FerCat

    Not her choice. They’re putting her out there and she has to respond.

  • FerCat

    In a way yes. It’s bad PR if she just shut up and not say anything about the deal and appearing compliant with the status quo.

  • TC_94

    No, she is great.

  • TC_94

    Because she is growing up and becoming more mature, and she has now had personal experience with this issue that she hadn’t before. It’s great that she is speaking up for gender pay equality in all fields (not only acting).

  • TC_94

    It’s ironic, she is becoming like a real life Mockingjay. People are using her as a symbol for gender equality.

  • Koos

    talking ‘Rubbish’?

  • Sprite

    Just for a change !

  • Davis

    Yet she isn’t working with any female directors…….

  • Davis

    It is about PR she works with an abuser like DOR and steals roles from older actresses.

    Just in Time! extract from Mr. Billion -
    The Board of Directors first order of business is the matter of that damn 18% interest… that’s too much for a man to pay. Now we gotta get rid of it, only thing to do is to hold a vote on it. Now Maam what’s your feelings on this?
    That sounds to me like the most sensible notion, it’s far too much for folks to pay, and as the only woman member of this board, I happily cast my vote with you Mr chairman.
    Person 3: Well I ended up giving this matter a lot of thought… I think we oughta buy Vegas!
    Person 4: What the hell good is it going to do to buy Vegas? and about that percentage bit, I don’t know nothing about no percentage! – I say give the money to the poor folk, that’s what you need to do.
    Person 5: That’s charity, that’s patronizing, now people need control over their own lives, we should set up day care centers, skill centers, I agree with the lady there… and we should have some more sisters on this board.
    Person 6: Hmm, I agree with you on that, you see what we need is an effective program for the working man and woman, now that’s the heart of the matter right there.
    Person 7: Do you? I vote with the majority, that’s the American way, it’s been working for over 200 years.
    Person 8: Bull manure! I make a motion that Falcon Finance never allows any of it’s money to get into political entanglements and I’m gonna drink to that!
    Chairman: Gerry/Jerry, What’s your feelin’ on this matter?
    Person 9: Well, I’ll leave it up to you partners!

    When Patricic Arquette spoke last year about equality she lost many job’s because she dare to open her mouth when Jennifer making the same thing she is a saint. What i dont understan why she talks about equality when she is the highest paid actress and other actresses who are more better then her does not get the half of it what she gets and i’m not just talking about money. She can do anything even something bad she would be always the perfect one who can joke about someone’s addiction and make fun of her or being disrespectful to a riporter who just trying to do his job.It’s never mind how wrong she was she would be always the one who can do wathever she wants behind her is at least 3 big firm who protect the her
