Why Amy Adams Played a Big Part in the Gender Pay Gap Discussion

Why Amy Adams Played a Big Part in the Gender Pay Gap Discussion

During the infamous 2014 Sony Pictures hack, lots of confidential information got released to the public, including salaries of actors working on American Hustle. The company’s PR nightmare turned into a widely discussed social issue regarding Hollywood’s gender pay gap. It was revealed that female stars Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence were paid less than their male co-stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, and Jeremy Renner.

At the time, this sparked debate and outrage all over social media and Hollywood. Jennifer Lawrence even wrote a lengthy piece about her thoughts and posted it publicly, which deserved much applause. Amy Adams kept silent at first, but the Sharp Objects actress and American Cinematheque awardee eventually spoke up about the issue as well. She made a fair point by saying that the tough questions about gender pay gap should be directed to Hollywood producers. They provide the numbers and attach prices to actors that will best fit their budget, so they should be on the hot seat. Bustle commended Adams for her insightful statement, because most of the time, the media focuses on women as if they hold the answer to the entire dilemma.

Adams also voice her opinions in Allure‘s April 2016 issue. Glamour quoted her revealing statements as she confessed, “I negotiated, and I tried to get paid as much [as Jeremy Renner and Bradley Cooper]. But I felt like if I kept pushing, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity,” she said. “So that’s on me.”

Her statement brought forth what a lot of other women around the world are not comfortable doing: negotiating pay and benefits. Adams is a talented actress who is frequently invited to awards shows and takes home plenty of recognition. She has already received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and her craft has continually improved over the years. It begs the question as to why was she was not considered of the same value as her male co-stars in American Hustle.

Since the incident, more stars in Hollywood have contributed their two cents on the issue. Well and Good recently reported about Benedict Cumberbatch’s noble stand on refusing to accept a role if his female co-star is not paid the same amount. This takes some power away from producers’ hands and shows an act of solidarity among actors.

Other actresses are becoming increasingly outspoken as well. The Hollywood Reporter talked to Ellen Pompeo about fighting for a salary that she deserves. The Grey’s Anatomy star openly discussed figures to the media in the hopes of inspiring other women to do the same. The Time’s Up movement could help end gender pay gap as well by forging 300-strong women actors to fight against sexual harassment and discrimination in Hollywood. Time’s Up is the organization that received Mark Wahlberg’s $1.5-million dollar donation after netizens called him out for passively agreeing to a huge pay gap. That amount was his purported compensation for the reshoots of All the Money in the World, while his co-star, Michelle Williams, reportedly got only $1,000.

Evidently, women are slowly but surely making changes to an industry plagued with politics and inequality. Along with the initiative of Amy Adams and other influential actors, this gap may hopefully be closed for good sooner rather than later.

Last month HBO launched the promotional tour for Sharp Objects with an interview to The Wall Street Journal magazine given by Gillian Flynn, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson.

“Don’t they look related?” says author Gillian Flynn, glancing at Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson, who raise their eyebrows quizzically. The pair play mother and daughter in Sharp Objects, the much-anticipated HBO adaptation of Flynn’s 2006 debut novel, but the suggestion that they resemble their characters makes the actresses understandably uneasy.

Even for those who know Adams’s dramatic range, her portrayal of Camille Preaker is a departure. The darkest, most complex character in a career that has earned Adams, 43, five Oscar nominations, Camille is a newspaper reporter who has written her own story on her body, carving words into her skin. Since being institutionalized, she’s tried to drown her cutting addiction with alcohol. Meanwhile, as Camille’s mother, Adora, Clarkson, 58, relishes withholding affection from her firstborn even as she smothers Camille’s teenage half-sister, Amma, with attention.

When Camille returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri, to investigate the murder of a young girl, she is forced to confront her past and her grief over the death years before of her younger sister, Marian. She and Adora, who presides over the town with emotionless elegance, share a sense of loss, but little else.

The withering mother-daughter dynamic is the brainchild of Flynn. The 47-year-old author—who penned the screenplay for David Fincher’s 2014 adaptation of her novel Gone Girl—wrote this eight-episode series, which airs starting in July. She and Adams also served on the project as executive producers, a first for each of them. The project was spearheaded by women, including Marti Noxon, a Mad Men veteran who co-wrote and was showrunner; and Jessica Rhoades, then a television executive at Blumhouse (the production company that also released Whiplash and Get Out). Jean-Marc Vallée, fresh off the success of HBO’s Big Little Lies, directed the five-month shoot, with long days on set in Northern California, Los Angeles and the 100-degree heat of Georgia—especially grueling for Adams, who was covered with prosthetic scars from the neck down.

Amy Adams Fan turns 10!

Amy Adams Fan turns 10!

Ten years ago the very first version of Amy Adams Fan came online, built by fellow (and now missed) Riikka and Mycah and designed by my favourite Frederik. Back then, Amy was already a fan favourite due Enchanted and some of her critical claimed projects as Doubt, Sunshine Cleaning and Julie & Julia was still awaiting release.

I came on board of the website two years later (2010) and have been enjoying the ride since then. It’s being a pleasure to follow Amy’s career (and to scream over Academy every year due their lack of judgement), and I want to thank you all, visitors from website and twitter, for the support over the years. It wouldn’t be as fun without you guys!

To celebrate, there’s a new layout up (since the weekend, because I’m not the waiting type of person), which I hope you guys have enjoyed. Let’s now prepare for more years ahead!
