Susan Sarandon Says Paul Newman Once Helped Her Get Equal Pay

Susan Sarandon Says Paul Newman Once Helped Her Get Equal Pay

Susan Sarandon participates in a Q&A at a special screening of Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story on Thursday (March 8) at BFI Southbank in London, England.

The actress was joined at the event by Ian McKellen.

Susan spoke out about pay equality in Hollywood earlier that day during an interview with BBC 5 Live.

Emma Stone once came forward and said she got equal pay, because her male stars insisted upon it and gave up something of theirs,” Susan said. “That happened to me with Paul Newman at one point, when I did a film with him ages ago. They said it was ‘favored nations,’ but they only meant the two guys. He stepped forward and said, ‘Well, I’ll give you part of mine.’ So, yeah, he was a gem.”

Susan and Paul previously worked together in the 1998 movie Twilight.
