Diane Kruger- I Have Never Been Paid As Much As A Male Costar In The US
Sadly, even in the modern world, it’s not uncommon for women to be treated different than men… and, according to a recent interview Diane Kruger did, that carries over into Hollywood.
“It depends on you- how you want to be treated and sometimes I’ve certainly made the experience that if I speak up and I don’t sugarcoat things that people think oh you’re harsh or you’re a b***h,” she shared. “Men would be treated as great artists and passionate about their work.”
“It’s a matter of yourself to just create that space and say no,” she continued, “this is where I draw the line. I know that’s sometimes difficult. I certainly have never been paid as much as a male costar in the United States- in France, yes… It is tough.”
We give Kruger credit for speaking so openly about this and hope that, the more conversations that are had surrounding this, the less prevalent it will be.
