The Hollywood Reporter’s annual actress roundtable celebrates eight stars who delivered Oscar-worthy performances this year. The full list includes Jennifer Lawrence, Carey Mulligan, Cate Blanchett, Jane Fonda, Brie Larson, Helen Mirren, Charlotte Rampling and Kate Winslet. The talented group was photographed by Miller Mobley in stylish ensembles.
In the interview, The Hollywood Reporter talks about Lawrence’s recent open letter on the pay gap between men and women in Hollywood. Jennifer says this when asked if there has been any backlash, “There’s always a backlash in everything that you do, but it’s not going to stop or change anything. And it’s not only an issue in Hollywood. When you’re asking about roles for men and women, men certainly have a longer shelf life. Men can play the sexy lead for 20 years longer than we can…”
Blanchett also adds, “It’s lazy thinking across all industries. We’re at the pointy and probably the most public end, but in what industry do women receive equal pay for equal work? I can’t think of any.”
