Jennifer Lawrence Expresses Her Annoyance at Leonardo DiCaprio Receiving $5 Million More Than Her for The Movie “Don’t Look Up”

Published

on

Jennifer Lawrence has expressed her annoyance at earning $5 million (£4.4 million) less than Leonardo DiCaprio, her co-star in the film Don’t Look Up.

Issue about being a Woman?

The Hunger Games performer was open about the salary disparity she still experiences with her male coworkers.

Lawrence, 31, pointed out that the highest-paid Hollywood actors are already highly compensated, but the pay gap is a part of a larger problem.

In Adam McKay’s comedy movie, Jen and Leo played two scientists who desperately try to warn the world of an impending comet that is going to wipe out all of civilization.

Lawrence received $25 million (£21.8 million) for the Netflix movie, whereas DiCaprio received $30 million (£26.1 million), despite the fact that Lawrence was the leading man.

Lawrence recently acknowledged the pay discrepancy in an interview with Vogue for their October 2022 edition, calling it “bothersome.”

She remarked, “No matter what I do, I’ll never be paid as much as that guy because of my vagina?

Lawrence has frequently experienced salary disparities that are rather noticeable when compared to her male co-stars.

She and Amy Adams were paid less for the movie American Hustle than Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper back in 2014 when Sony Pictures computers were hacked.

“When the Sony hack happened and I found out how much less I was being paid than the lucky folks with d**ks, I didn’t get upset at Sony. I felt mad at myself,” Jennifer wrote in an essay when the information about the pay discrepancy first leaked.

The Guts

Lawrence made other comments on the rumors that she had slept with Harvey Weinstein in her interview with Vogue.

With Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, and Cara Delevingne among the hundreds of women who came forward to accuse Weinstein of rape and sexual assault, he was found guilty and is now serving a 23-year jail sentence. Weinstein produced The Silver Linings Playbook.

Weinstein allegedly boasted of sleeping with Jennifer Lawrence in a 2018 complaint against the producer, saying: “I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she is; she just won an Oscar.”

Lawrence, who at the time categorically refuted the allegations, made a point to do it again during a round of 73 Questions.

She said, “That I f***ed Harvey Weinstein,” when asked what was the most “bizarre” thing she had ever read about herself.

And that’s that.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Releases Its First Trailer

Published

on

The last time we saw Star-Lord and his rag tag bunch of extraterrestrial friends in a stand-alone movie was five years ago. The public has now been given a trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

A Bit of a Surprise

Although they’ve been in multiple Avengers movies, Chris Pratt’s character hasn’t had a solo adventure in a very long time. However, they’re back and they look better than ever. The third installment of the fantastic Marvel franchise has not yet given a concrete on what’s to come, but hopefully the trailer would give us an idea on what’s going on.

Keeping the Standard

We appear to be in for a picture that jumps between planets and is full of action, drama, and astonishing emotion. In one scene, Rocket is seen as a young racoon, and there may also be the beginnings of a possible love affair between Rocket and an otter. As the Guardians move through space, the visuals are stunning, nothing less of what we’ve been expecting from the franchise.

Make sure you check out the trailer right here!

The Internet Goes Wild After Will Smith’s Latest Movie Gets Boycotted by Critics

Published

on

Due to the ongoing repercussions from Will Smith’s slap on Chris Rock at the Academy Awards earlier in the year, fans have had a mixed reaction to the historical action movie Emancipation, which was directed by Antoine Fuqua and stars Smith.

The Plot of the Movie

Gordon, also known as “Whipped Peter,” was a Black American slave who managed to escape the Louisiana plantation where he was kept captive in the book Emancipation. In order to avoid hunters and bloodhounds, he traveled more than 60 kilometers in ten days before arriving at a post of Union soldiers in the early 1863.

The Consequences

Even though Smith has said he understands if people don’t want to watch Emancipation, a sizable portion of folks who would not view this movie because of its relationship with Smith are puzzling fans of the actor.

Emancipation debuts in American theaters on December 2 and becomes available on Apple TV on December 9. Hopefully people would still support the film, and see the film for what it can truly be.

Fans Already have the Ideal Substitute for Liam Hemsworth in The Witcher

Published

By

The mess that was The Witcher on Netflix just won’t go away. If you didn’t hear, Henry Cavill has left the series, and I truly hope I’m not the one to tell you.

The Witcher Debate Just Won’t Go Away

In the next third season, Cavill will play Geralt of Rivea, but this will be his last appearance. The position will then be filled by Liam Hemsworth in season four.

Cavill didn’t really give a reason for leaving, but it’s quite obvious now. Cavill, who has fought for the veracity of Andrzej Sapkowski’s original novels, is quite disappointed that The Witcher is departing from them.

Some producers reportedly even made fun of the novels. In light of this, viewers started a petition requesting that Netflix fire the show’s writers and rehire Cavill. Liam Hemsworth is not at fault for any of this mess, but the actor hasn’t exactly received a warm welcome to the franchise.

We Got This Covered reports that 3D artist Wonki Cho has won the hearts of fans with a collection of concept work that casts actor Mads Mikkelsen in the part.

As Geralt, I must confess that Mikkelsen does look pretty cool, and let’s face it—everything that man touches turns to gold. Similar views were expressed by fans on Twitter. No offense to Liam Hemsworth for playing The Witcher, but Mads Mikkelsen is a perfectly capable actor over here, according to Grunchpop.

Fans aren’t the only ones affected by Cavill’s departure; Revnardent added, “Petition for Mads Mikkelsen to be the next Witcher.” We share Doug Cockle’s sentiments, who play Geralt in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and expressed his sadness at Cavill’s departure.
