Jennifer Aniston Talks Sexism And Fighting For Equal Pay

Jennifer Aniston Talks Sexism And Inequal Pay In Hollywood

Jennifer-An

by Grazia |

Thanks to the Sony email hack we now know that, like in many other careers, when it comes to acting women are paid less than men. Now Grazia fave Jennifer Aniston has waded in on the debate and revealed that she has had to fight for her pay checks for films and believes we still live in a 'very sexist society'.

The Cake actress explained: 'We're very much a sexist society. Women are still not paid as much as men....I've been up against that in negotiations myself.' (As a side note if you haven't heard about Grazia's equal pay campaign then check this out - we went to Parliament and everything! )

But back to Jennifer, the starlet also spoke out about the attention female stars get over their appearance and the criticism she has faced over the years.

In the intervew with the New York Times newspaper she said: 'I really do think you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.'

You either are too fat "Oh my God, she's gained weight, getting chubby, mid-40s spread!" or "She's so skeletal, get some meat on her bones!" I've been on too-thin lists. I've been on what-happened-to-her lists.'

While Jennifer might have weathered critisism in the past she is currently enjoying time in the limelight thanks to her performance in her new film Cake.

And on Sunday she may well walk away with a Golden Globe award to kick off the season. Could she even get a nod at the Oscars? Watch this space...
