Happy Monday to you all! Your Monday morning coffee is being served up to you by the usually cheerful Jennifer Lawrence.
Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 spent several weeks on top of the box office… which is good.
However, thanks to the SONY leak, Jennifer may be a little peeved this morning. She found out that she and Amy Adams didn’t make as much as their three male costars in American Hustle… which is not so good.
Actors sometimes negotiate points (a.k.a. “back end”) in addition to their salary for a film. For American Hustle, here were the points: “Cooper: 9%; Bale: 9%; Renner: 9%; Lawrence: 7%; Adams: 7%.”
Bad negotiation on the part of their agents? Or systemic gender discrimination?
While you’re thinking about actor’s back ends, we have a BG12345 for you today! That’s five blind items in five hours. Enjoy!
