“Arrival” star Amy Adams is once again addressing the gender wage gap.
The actress weighs in on the wage disparity in a new interview with Elle UK, fully supports equal pay, but says the wage gap between men and women is more complicated than it appears.
“The negotiation comes to a standstill and I have to make a choice, which a lot of women do,” she says. “I can walk away. But I choose not to… this is an issue not just about women’s pay; we need to work on how women are viewed in society and then the pay will be reflected in that. Right now time is more important to me. So that’s what I negotiate because any time I’m working, I’m not spending with my daughter.”
Earlier this year the star revealed she was well-aware that she was making less than her male “American Hustle” co-stars: “I knew I was being paid less and I still agreed to do it because the option comes down to do it or don’t do it. So you just have to decide if it’s worth it for you. It doesn’t mean I liked it.”
