Jennifer Lawrence Chats With Orpah Winfrey For The Cover Issue Of The Hollywood ReporterDecember 6, 2017 - Author: admin - No Comments
Jennifer Lawrence is on the cover of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter. The young actress was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey for the “Women In Entertainment” issue. Highlights are below.
On her feelings about hitting success so early: “Fear. You’re immediately hit with fear. Or at least I was. I had been climbing and working and fighting, and I remember last year just getting hit with fear. All of a sudden it was, ‘They’re going to get sick of me.’ That’s when all my insecurity came. I’ve been probably more insecure after last year, and I don’t know if that’s just a feeling of: I’ve got more to lose, I have more people to disappoint. I don’t know how to explain it.”
On speaking out about the gender pay gap: “I felt this frustration that women in every field felt, which was: I’m trying to negotiate, and we’re going through the numbers, and I’m seeing that the numbers aren’t adding up, and it’s like you just keep hitting a wall where you can’t get paid more, [and] if you ask for more, we’ll hire somebody else, and the whole movie will fall apart. They’d rather pull a whole movie apart than pay me fairly. And when the Sony hack happened, I was like, ‘You know what? F*** it. I’m not the only woman who’s going through this. If everybody’s looking at it anyway and everybody’s talking about it …’ I didn’t see an option other than saying something. I had just had it up to my f***ing eyeballs”.
