We are SO proud of Jessica Chastain’s contribution to the women’s movement. Octavia Spencer revealed at a Sundance panel that Jessica fought to get her equal pay. Jessica and Octavia were planning to do a comedy together and Jessica didn’t realize that women of color had an even harder time negotiating equal pay. Jessica re-negotiated her deal AS A PAIR with Octavia and they were paid more money as a unit. Octavia got 5 times as much money as she originally asked for. Most Important: Jessica said “MEN SHOULD BE DOING THIS WITH FEMALE COSTARS!” Great idea! Did you hear that, Mark Wahlberg?
