Emma Stone ‘lucky’ to get equal pay as male co-stars

London, Oct 16 (IANS) Actress Emma Stone says she feels lucky to be paid the same remuneration as her male counterparts.
In an interview with the Vogue magazine, the “Birdman” star said she doesn’t think it is fair that women and men should get paid different amounts, reported femalefirst.co.uk.
“We should all be treated fairly and paid fairly. I’ve been lucky enough to have equal pay to my male co-stars. Not ‘lucky’.AI’ve had pay equal to my male co-stars in the past few films,” Stone said.
She added: “But our industry ebbs and flows in a way that’s like, ‘How much are you bringing into the box office?’ ‘How much are you the draw or is the other person the draw?’
“I felt uncomfortable talking to my agent or lawyer about it because I was like, ‘Do people want to see me as much as they want to see Steve Carell?’ It’s a weird conversation to have because it’s trying to see oneself from the outside.
“What are we at (nationally)? Seventy-nine cents to the dollar? It’s insane. There’s no excuse for it anymore.”
The 27-year-old actress also said that she worries about people not wanting to ever hire her again.
“You always feel a little bit like that. That you could again be an outsider, that something could make people never want to hire you again.”
