It’s a family affair

The pair were joined by Goldie’s husband Kurt Russell and other family members, including Kate’s children for the charity event. Naomie Harris thinks the Hollywood gender pay gap is “ridiculous” and “unjustifiable”. The Spectre actress is the latest female movie star to have her say on the ongoing inequality issue in Hollywood and she strongly believes no one can argue that is right for an actress to be paid less than an actor. Speaking on the red carpet at the UK premiere of her new film ‘Our Kind of Traitor’ she told BANG Showbiz: “I think the issue is absolutely ridiculous that an actress can be paid less than an actor when they are both contributing equally to the movie, it doesn’t make sense. “I don’t think it is justifiable in any shape or form. “I don’t think anyone can come up with an argument that makes it justifiable. Especially if both actors are coming to set every day and working the same hours. It doesn’t make any sense.” The 39-year-old star plays Gail Perkins in the British spy thriller and in the film her alter ego is paid more than her husband Perry Makepeace, played by Ewan McGregor, something which has a major effect on the characters’ relationship.
