Jennifer Lawrence talks about earning LESS than Leonardo DiCaprio in “Don’t Look Up”

In an interview with IndieWire, actress Jennifer Lawrence opened up about the pay gap between her and star Leonardo DiCaprio in “Don’t Look Up.”

Although Lawrence’s name is the first to appear onscreen, DiCaprio will be taking $ 5 million more than her for the film.

“I was number one during the casting call. [Estou bem] to be number one in the credits? Yes, and I thought that [os créditos] should reflect who the protagonist is. Leo was very nice about it. I think we had something called Laverne & Shirley, which is this billing that they invented where it’s equal billing. But I think at one point maybe I saw that Leo deserved more, ”Lawrence told Vanity Fair.

The actress agreed that DiCaprio was making $ 30 million, while she was making $ 25 million.

“Look, Leo is making more box office than I am. I am extremely happy and happy with my agreement. But in other situations, what I’ve seen – and I’m sure other women in the workforce have seen it too – is that it’s extremely uncomfortable to ask questions about the salary equity. And if you question something that seems uneven, they say it’s not a gender disparity, but they can’t say what it is exactly.

The film will be released on the big screen on December 9 and December 24 on the platform.
