Following an announcement that there’s to be a federal investigation into discrimination against female directors in Hollywood, Iron Man actress Gwyneth Paltrow was asked to give her thoughts on the matter during an interview with Variety, and she used the opportunity to discuss the wage inequality between male and female actors, describing the disparity between the two as “painful.”
Robert Downey Jr. nabbed $111 million this year, having starred in just one movie, and was named Hollywood’s highest grossing actor. To put this into context, the highest grossing actress, Jennifer Lawrence, made about $72 million, despite having headlined several films.

Because of this, Paltrow uses her Iron Man co-star as an example:
“Your salary is a way to quantify what you’re worth. If men are being paid a lot more for doing the same thing, it feels s***y. Look, nobody is worth the »

The actress said her Iron Man and Avengers co-star shouldn't be getting massive pay cheques when women are earning a lot less for doing the same job.
"Your salary is a way to quantify what you're worth. If men are being paid a lot more for doing the same thing, it feels shitty," she told Variety.
"Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr is worth. But if I told you the disparity, you would probably be surprised."
Last year, Downey Jr made $80 million, which shot him to the top of Forbes' highest-paid actors list for the third year running.
Comparing that to the highest-paid female actor, Jennifer Lawrence, who earned $28 million less than Downey Jr in the same period for the same number of films, »
It was recently announced that there was to be a federal investigation into discrimination against female directors in Hollywood, as just 5% of directors chosen to helm major studio movies are women. If evidence of discrimination is found, it could mean a class action suit and a major shake up for the movie industry in general. Gwyneth Paltrow has used this announcement to comment on the wage inequality between male and female actors, calling the disparity between the two "painful" during an interview with Variety. The actress uses her McU co-star Robert Downey Jr. - who made a whopping $80 million this year despite having only made one movie - as an example. “Your salary is a way to quantify what you’re worth. If men are being paid a lot more for doing the same thing, it feels s***y. Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr. is worth. »
Gwyneth Paltrow recently spoke to Variety (via "Page Six") about the gender wage gap in Hollywood. Following in the footsteps of notable feminist Patricia Arquette's Golden Globes speech, Paltrow says that the wage gap is "painful": "Your salary is a way to quantify what you’re worth. If men are being paid a lot more for doing the same thing, it feels shitty." While she didn't go as far as to say that Iron Man franchise co-star Robert Downey Jr. shouldn't make what he does — Downey earned $80 million in 2015 to Paltrow's $9 million — she does say, "Look, nobody is worth the money that Robert Downey Jr. is worth. But if I told you the disparity, you would probably be surprised." Let's just say that salary makes Downey the only person in Hollywood who can afford to shop on Goop. »

Gwyneth Paltrow first learned about L.A. Kitchen from her chef pal Jose Andres. The nonprofit uses a 22,000-sq.-ft., $2.5 million facility in Northeast Los Angeles to train chefs from disadvantaged backgrounds. The chefs prepare meals using fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. The organization has a goal of serving 2,000 to 3,000 meals a day to the general public, and 3,000 to 6,000 more to senior citizens by 2016.
“My feeling is that everybody in this country should be entitled to eat fresh, real food,” Paltrow says. “L.A. Kitchen is very much aligned with that idea.”
She recently gave a speech at a fundraiser, helping generate $200,000 for the organization while her 9-year-old son, Moses, volunteered as a waiter-in-training.

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis proved it could be done and, even to this day, they may have set an unattainable gold standard. Then Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin proved it could be done in the Twitter age. And Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck appear to be doing their best to be part of the club.
