Jennifer Lawrence pens essay on sexism Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-Stars

"Again, this might have NOTHING to do with my vagina, but I wasn't completely wrong when another leaked Sony email revealed a producer referring to a fellow lead actress in a negotiation as a 'spoiled brat.' "

"When it comes to the subject of feminism, I’ve remained ever-so-slightly quiet," writes Jennifer Lawrence in a new essay. "But with a lot of talk comes change, so I want to be honest and open and, fingers crossed, not piss anyone off."

The actress' essay -- titled "Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co‑Stars?" -- appears in the Oct. 13 edition of Lenny, the feminist newsletter from Lena Dunham and her Girls co-showrunner Jenni Konner. Lawrence opens up about the difference in her pay from that of her American Hustle male co-stars, which was leaked to the public during last year's Sony hack.

"When the Sony hack happened and I found out how much less I was being paid than the lucky people with dicks, I didn’t get mad at Sony. I got mad at myself. I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early. I didn’t want to keep fighting over millions of dollars that, frankly, due to two franchises, I don’t need," she explains.
