Felicity Jones Discusses Why She Protects Her Privacy Off Screen
Here’s what the 33-year-old Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actress had to share with the mag:
On equal pay for men and women: “I want to be paid fairly for the work that I’m doing. That’s what every single woman around the world wants. We want to be paid on parity with a man in a similar position. And I think it’s important to talk about it.… It’s brave of those women to come forward and make a point about it. Now younger actresses will have a confidence in those discussions with their agents and be able to say, ‘Can we make sure that I’m being paid the right amount for the work that I’m doing?’”
On keeping her personal life private: “When I go to the cinema, the less I know about the person, the more I can invest in them as characters.”
On being a feminist: “I’ve always been a feminist, and what I love in my work is being able to explore a full-sided woman and not patronize her. Particularly with Jyn, it’s such a rare opportunity to be able to play a female who’s not just thinking about [romantic] relationships.”
