Race hurts stars’ pay


LOS ANGELES: Gabrielle Union thinks movie studios “screw” black actresses out of big pay days.

The 48-year-old actress says black actresses are underpaid compared to their white counterpar­ts, and Gabrielle is determined to fight back.

She shared: “As black actresses, there’s almost shame involved, because we get paid so much less.

“When those Forbes lists come out about highest paid actors, you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m a failure ... That’s what they’re making? And I’m nowhere close’.
