Hey you know Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain right?
Yeah, they’re in the movie The Help.
Well get this, Jessica helped get Octavia paid way more.
Because Octavia was upset that women in the movie industries don’t get paid as much as their male counterparts. Especially women of color.
That’s not fair!
I know , Octavia is even the first African American actress to be nominated for multiple Academy Awards after a winning best supporting actress Oscar for "The Help" and was nominated in the same category for "Hidden Figures" last year and "The Shape of Water" this year.
It’s not fair that she got paid less, she has so much talent.
I know, it’s not just her, a lot of Hollywood actresses have been standing up about how much less they get paid than men.
It’s awesome that they’re saying something about it and making a difference.
Yeah, I can’t wait to see what other movies these ladies are going be in this year.
