Natalie Port­man says co-star Kutcher paid 3 times as much

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Natalie Port­man says Ash­ton Kutcher was paid three times as much as she for co-star­ring in 2011’s “No Strings At­tached.” Port­man tells Marie Claire she knew about the pay dif­fer­ence at the time the film was be­ing made, but wasn’t as miffed as she should have been. She tells the mag­a­zine, “we get paid a lot, so it’s hard to com­plain, but the disparity is crazy.”

The 35-year-old says she doesn’t “think women and men are more or less ca­pa­ble. We just have a clear is­sue with women not hav­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.” She says women need to “be part of the so­lu­tion, not per­pet­u­at­ing the prob­lem.”

Kutcher’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives didn’t im­me­di­ately re­spond to an email seek­ing com­ment.
