“If we don’t talk to each other, we can’t share, we can’t get information, we can’t get angry and organize together,” she tells Elle as part of the magazine’s 2019 “Women in Hollywood” special. “Something we’ve been talking about is sharing salary details with each other.”

“Right now, it’s such a taboo,” Portman continues. “It’s actually a real way that we can help each other, to be like, “Hey, this is what I get paid. This is how I negotiated this.'”
