Bono is truly in awe of Jennifer Lawrence!
In a candid Facebook Live Q&A for his ONE organization this past Tuesday, the singer made mention of Jennifer and her recent comments about the gender pay gap in Hollywood. Considering the icon is a big champion of gender equality himself, it’s no surprise he praised the actress for her amazing work concerning the issue.
Speaking on his gender equality philosophy and how Lawrence’s past comments have shaped the entertainment industry, Bono explained:
“Gender equality is at the center of any movement that holds fairness, freedom, and justice as its core values. In Hollywood, Jennifer Lawrence, speaking about how actors are paid. Women have this incredible thing ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ bond I think you have. More than men. Women have a great sense of solidarity. It’s women saying they will not have it anymore. They will not take the bad deal.”
Wow! What high praise from the singer!
Who knows, maybe the beauty can help out with ONE’s “Poverty Is Sexist” campaign — we already know Oprah Winfrey and Melinda Gates are fans!
