In a new interview, Natalie Portman said she was paid a third of what one of her male co-stars earned.
As part of an interview for her cover story with Marie Claire U.K., Portman said that she knew about the pay gap during her time working with Ashton Kutcher on the 2011 film “No Strings Attached,” but revealed that she wasn’t as troubled about the issue as she now believes she should have been.
“I knew and I went along with it because there’s this thing with ‘quotes’ in Hollywood,” Portman told the magazine. “His [quote] was three times higher than mine so they said he should get three times more.”
