Jennifer Lawrence Writes Essay About Inequality: I'm Done Trying to Find the Adorable Way to Speak My Mind

Jennifer Lawrence just wrote an essay about inequality in Hollywood for Lena Dunham‘s Lenny Letter.

Specifically, Jennifer talked about her pay inequality for American Hustle, which was revealed in the massive Sony hack.

“I would be lying if I didn’t say there was an element of wanting to be liked that influenced my decision to close the deal without a real fight,” the 25-year-old Oscar winning actress wrote. “I didn’t want to seem ‘difficult’ or ‘spoiled.’ At the time, that seemed like a fine idea, until I saw the payroll on the Internet and realized every man I was working with definitely didn’t worry about being ‘difficult’ or ‘spoiled.’”

“Are we socially conditioned to behave this way? We’ve only been able to vote for what, 90 years? I’m seriously asking…Could there still be a lingering habit of trying to express our opinions in a certain way that doesn’t ‘offend’ or ‘scare’ men? I’m over trying to find the ‘adorable’ way to state my opinion and still be likable! F— that,” Jennifer added.

“I don’t think I’ve ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It’s just heard,” Jennifer continued.
