Well this didn’t take long!
What makes Cooper’s opinion especially important is that he starred in American Hustle alongside Jennifer and famously received more money to make the flick, which is essentially what the feminist piece is about.
So, did Brad think J-Law was overreacting or did he think she was right on target? When asked the question during his promotion for Burnt alongside Sienna Miller, the actor explained:
“One thing I could say is that’s interesting because if you think that you only deserve a certain amount and that’s not correct, it’s about changing that mindset and sticking up for yourself the way that Sienna did. So that’s a great thing.”
Hmm, is B.C. admonishing the gorgeous blonde for not being more vocal? It seems like Jennifer already expressed regret over not speaking up, Coop!
As for what “Sienna did”, the actress admitted to passing up on a desired role all over a disparity in pay. Miller revealed:
“I walked away from a play that I wanted to do because I was offered less than half of what the other man was offered and it was just the two of us. I did what we have to start doing, unfortunately, at the expense of our creative dreams.”
Well hopefully one day soon women won’t have to be put in either/or scenarios. It’s nice to know that the 33-year-old and Jen are working hard to make this a reality!
So, what do YOU think of Cooper’s comments?
