Natalie Port­man pitches for equal pay for men and women in Hol­ly­wood

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Black Swan ac­tor Natalie Port­man (left) has in­sisted that she is sick of the mas­sive pay gap be­tween men and women in Hol­ly­wood. “There is an out­ra­geous dis­crep­ancy be­tween men and women in Hol­ly­wood. Titanic be­comes a huge hit and Leonardo DiCaprio im­me­di­ately goes to $20 mil­lion (`127 crore) per movie and Kate Winslet doesn’t,” said the ac­tor.

The 34-year-old went on to add, “That feels to­tally like it’s chang­ing. Young women like Jen­nifer Lawrence and Kris­ten Stewart ... they’re stars now. I don’t even know who the guys are who are their age,” Port­man said. The Closer ac­tor, who is mar­ried to Ben­jamin Millepied and has a four-year-old son Aleph, is not wor­ried about her own ca­reer any­more and ac­cepts that there is go­ing to be a time when her de­mand will be less. “I don’t get pan­icky, I know the waves ... some­times it’s quiet, some­times it’s wild. I feel like I’ve done so much, it al­lows me to try new things, like di­rect­ing. I can fol­low my own cu­rios­ity. I’ve been do­ing this long enough to see that my path is my own. I’m not in a race with any­one,” she said.
