While on stage, Brie opened up about about the equal pay for women in the film industry.

“I’m very grateful to break this glass ceiling that women can also make a billion dollars…The reason why I was able to get the payment that I got from the movie [Captain Marvel], a lot of it had to do with the women who came before me…Don’t do it for you. Do it for the next woman,” Brie said.
