Los Angeles, July 7: Actress Emma Stone says her male co-stars willingly take pay cuts as they can judge what is right and what is wrong.
The 28 year old next film will be “Battle of the Sexes.”
“In my career so far, I’ve needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them. And that’s something they do for me because they feel it’s what’s right and fair, so that’s something that’s also not discussed, necessarily — that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, ‘That’s what’s fair’,” Stone told.
The actress said: “She’s (character) such a coach and she knows sports psychology, and she instantly reduced it to playing catch, so I got to feel like a golden retriever running after a ball, and just making sure the ball was in front of my face.”
“What was incredible is that she found my strengths and she played to those. She found out instantly that I like to dance and I could move my feet, and that was our jumping off point,” Stone added.
