Find Out Why Jennifer Lawrence Walked Away From The Rosie Project Even After Offering To Cut Her Fee For The Part!

Sony was just too slow.

It's a classic case of "you snooze, you lose."

Last month — on the same day that Jennifer Lawrence published an essay about the gender wage gap in Hollywood — the blonde beauty walked away from a part in The Rosie Project.

Now, we're learning why the 25-year-old bailed on the Sony romantic comedy.

Right from the get-go, studio chairman Tom Rothman made it clear he didn't want to shell out $20 million on Jen, which is what Sony had just offered the blonde beauty for her part in Passengers.

But because the Kentucky native really wanted to work with director Richard Linklater, she agreed to take a pay cut for the role.

However, it wasn't the smaller paycheck that caused the Hunger Games star to bow out. A source revealed that the negotiations took too long, and the actress had gotten frustrated, saying:

"Rothman was doing a lot of grinding on The Rosie Project, and it took its toll. If it had been done more quickly, it wouldn't have fallen apart."

And although Richard's contract had been ironed out pretty quickly, he stepped away from the project when the young celeb did, because she was the one who pursued him and got him on board.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with this film, now that it's lost its leading lady and director.

Having Kids Is Cheapest In…

Having Kids Cheapest In

It's a sad fact. In most of the world, women earn less than men.

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the median woman's salary is about 7% lower than her male counterpart.

But moms make even less! Closer to 22% lower!

But remember, this 15% drop is the world median! In Ireland, a mother can expect to drop a whopping 31%! (Though it should be noted that Ireland is one of the countries where women actually start on top!)

But the question is simple for women who plan on being moms- Where can we go to find the smallest drop in pay?
