Octavia Spencer is praising Jessica Chastain for helping her get pay equity in their upcoming movie together. When the topic came up between the friends, Octavia recalls Jessica taking a stance by saying, ‘It’s time that women get paid as much as men.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah Jessica, it’s time! But here’s the thing, women of color on that spectrum, we make far less than white women. So, if we’re gonna have that conversation about pay equity, we gotta bring the women of color to the table.’ Jessica responded with, ‘Octavia we’re gonna get you paid on this film. You and I are gonna make the same thing.’ Octavia went on to gush about her friendship with Jessica saying. “I love that woman, because she’s walking the walk and she’s actually talking the talk. Fast forward to last week, we’re making five times what we asked for.”
