Seyfried says she was recently paid just ten per cent of a male co-star’s salary in a film. She does not disclose the movie — which could have been anything from Dear John with Channing Tatum to Les Miserables with Eddie Redmayne — but said that she and the actor were “pretty even in status” and should have received more equal salaries.
I think people think that just because I’m easy going and game to do things, I’ll just take as little as they offer. It’s not about how much you get, it’s about how fair it is.
Seyfried believes that every actress should fight for equal rights but that being willing to walk away from something is “an individual choice”.
